Punjab Kings are taking on Chennai Super Kings in the 11th match of IPL 2022 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. PBKS have played two matches so far and has won one against Royal Challengers Bangalore while losing the other against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
On the other, CSK have lost two successive games against KKR and Lucknow Super Giants and is looking for their first win of the 15th season.
CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja won the rare toss on Sunday and asked Mayank Agarwal to bat first. Mayank Agarwal and Bhanuka Rajapaksa were dismissed early.
However, Liam Livingstone and Shikhar Dhawan brought their team back into the game.
The England all-rounder, who was signed for Rs 11.50 crore in the mega auctions, was in devastating form. During his 32-ball stay, he hit five fours and as many sixes to score 60 for his team. Liam added 95 runs for the third wicket with Dhawan.
The highlight of his innings was 108 m six that he hit against Mukesh Choudhary on the first ball of the fifth over. He scored a total of 26 runs in that over.
Talking about the longest sixes in the league’s history, the record is with former South African all-rounder Albie Morkel, who hit a 125m strike in the league’s inaugural edition while representing Chennai Super Kings.
