Harshal Patel, Mahipal Lomror


Punjab Kings (PBKS) bowler Harshal Patel made sure to continue his good form in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). The 58th match of the tournament between the teams will be held at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala.

Harshal Patel, who didn’t get off to a great start with the ball, made sure to end the innings on a high. The fast bowler produced a magnificent last over that helped his team restrict Royal Challengers Bengaluru below the score of 250, which at one point seemed easy.

This was made possible by the variations shown by Harshal Patel in the last game of the over. He removed Mahipal Lomror with a peach and made the batsman look clueless. The pacer bowled a sensationally slower ball that the batsman had no idea about.

Harshal Patel bowled a brilliant slower ball that was level with Yorker. The ball came down cleverly at the last moment and deceived Mahipal Lomror and ended up on the bottom edge. The RCB batsman was deep inside the crease while trying to drive it on the leg side but missed the ball completely.

Here is the video:

Mahipal Lomror scored a two-ball duck and it is fair to say that his wicket saved crucial runs for the Punjab Kings at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala. After his wicket, Harshal Patel made sure to deal another blow to the opposition.

Harshal Patel in the same episode eliminated Cameron Green, who looked menacing. He bowled another slower ball that was completely outside. The batsman grabbed the stick and dragged it off the end of the bat. The ball went to long-on, where Sam Curran made a brilliant catch.

Green scored 46 runs and took Royal Challengers Bengaluru to the grand total. Earlier, Virat Kohli played a magnificent innings of 92 runs and kept his team on top. Based on the excellent batting performance, they finished with a total of 241 runs on the board.

That was a great over from Harshal in the last over – Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli, who played vital innings for his team, spoke about the surface and said that it is a new-ball two-pace wicket. He also praised Harshal Patel for his magnificent last over and stated that he bowled a sensational over. He explained:

“The surface was quite dry underneath and there was also some grass coverage. If you saw that Faf and I ended up due to lack of rhythm off the court. There was a two-rhythm feeling with the new ball, which I think is a great advantage”. opportunity for our bowlers to make early breakthroughs and exploit that swing.

“We thought anything above 230 would be a good total here. That was the only mindset. That was a great over from Harshal in the last over, otherwise we would have had more than 250“He concluded.
