Cricket Updates and Highlights (KKR vs PBKS):

Zaheer chose Pant as the only wicketkeeper for T20 World Cup:

Zaheer picks Pant as sole wicketkeeper for T20 World Cup, wants India debut for Yash Dayal New Delhi, Former India fast bowler Zaheer Khan has selected Rishabh Pant as the lone wicketkeeper in his squad for the T20 World Cup, while giving left-arm pacer Yash Dayal his international debut to add a new dimension to the attack. Responsibility has been assigned.

One of Zaheer’s most interesting selections was 26-year-old Dayal, who represents Uttar Pradesh in domestic cricket and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League. He has also kept Mohammed Shami’s injury in mind while choosing his team.

Punjab Kings smash record for highest T20 run-chase:

Punjab Kings produced a record-breaking run-chase during their IPL 2024 win against Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday
Punjab Kings on Friday etched their name in T20 history by achieving the most successful run chase in the shortest format with a breathtaking display of batting prowess. Their memorable achievement was against Kolkata Knight Riders, when they chased down the tough target of 262 runs with remarkable ease and secured an emphatic eight-wicket win.

Yuvraj Singh’s decision:

Amidst the talk of Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson for the T20 World Cup, Yuvraj Singh is most impressed by the performance of Dinesh Karthik in IPL 2024. One of the major selection headaches for the T20 World Cup will be related to choosing the two wicketkeeping positions in the 15-man squad. Six players – Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Jitesh Sharma and Dhruv Jurel – are vying for those two spots in the Indian team at the start of the IPL 2024 season. At over the halfway mark in the ongoing tournament, the fight got a seventh contestant in the form of Dinesh Karthik, who has been in great form down the order for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

England’s Bairstow stakes claim to participate in T20 World Cup with IPL century:

Jonny Bairstow gave England selectors a timely reminder of his big-hitting abilities ahead of picking the squad for the Twenty20 World Cup in June by scoring an explosive unbeaten century in the Indian Premier League. Returning to the Punjab Kings squad after missing his last two matches due to poor form, Bairstow scored an unbeaten 108 off 48 balls, leading his team to the most successful run chase in T20 history on Friday.

Gautam Gambhir got angry and left:

KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir was very upset with his team not getting a single run during the match against PBKS.
On Friday, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had a chance to consolidate their second position in the IPL 2024 points table as they reclaimed the spot following Sunrisers Hyderabad’s loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday. This could bring them one step closer to making the playoffs again.

But Punjab Kings confounded the home side, who pulled off a heist to set a T20 world record at the Eden Gardens. Inspired by a strong performance from Jonny Bairstow, who scored the second IPL century of his career, PBKS chased down 262 with eight wickets in hand and eight balls to spare.
