On the other side, Punjab has created a separate fanbase of his own. After the return of Chris Gayle the team has found its lost luck once again. Since his return, Punjab has won back to back matches after five consecutive defeats. In the previous match against the earlier table toppers Mumbai Indians, Punjab boys have performed exceptionally. It was the first time ever in cricket that two super overs were played in one match. In a nail biting competition, Punjab finally defeated Mumbai in the 2nd super over with the help of Gayle’s six and Mayank’s fours. 

Mohammad Shami turned out to be an extraordinary bowler who defended his team’s runs in the first super over. Punjab’s skipper K L Rahul has scored the highest runs for the team. 

With 3 wins in eight matches, Punjab is sitting on the 6th position in the tournament standings. The previous win has raised hopes for the team to enter into the qualifiers but for that they need to win their remaining five league matches.
