Preity Zinta's Rollercoaster: Elation to Heartbreak as Hetmyer Crushes PBKS in Last-Over Thriller

The Punjab Kings spectators at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Chandigarh were in a celebratory mood as they watched their team take on the Rajasthan Royals. Among them was franchise co-owner Preity Zinta, who was visibly excited, leading the cheers. The match was intense, with both teams giving it their all. Punjab's stand-in skipper, Sam Curran, played a crucial role by picking up two wickets in the penultimate over, which put the Rajasthan Royals in a tight spot with seven wickets down.

Zinta's excitement was palpable as victory seemed within reach for Punjab. However, their hopes were dashed in a matter of five deliveries when Shimron Hetmyer of the Rajasthan Royals hit two sixes, turning the tide of the game in their favour. Despite a valiant effort from Ashutosh Sharma, who scored a quick 31 runs off 16 balls for Punjab, the team fell short of a competitive total. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, got off to a steady start in their chase, never losing a wicket in the powerplay. Tanush Kotian, usually a tailender, struggled as an opener, which limited their scoring in the early overs. Kagiso Rabada's two quick wickets gave Punjab some hope, but Rajasthan managed to steady their innings. Hetmyer and Rovman Powell's partnership brought the equation down to 12 runs off 10 balls, putting the pressure back on Punjab.

Curran's two wickets in the 19th over raised hopes for Punjab once again, but Hetmyer's aggressive batting in the final over sealed the victory for Rajasthan. Zinta, who had gone from ecstatic to tense and finally heartbroken, expressed confidence in her team's ability to bounce back in the next game. Despite the loss, Curran commended his team's effort and expressed optimism about their performance in the upcoming matches.
