On Friday, the Punjab Kings made T20 history with an incredible show of batting power, completing the most successful run chase in the shortest format. Their historic performance occurred against the Kolkata Knight Riders, when they easily achieved the challenging target of 262 runs, scoring an overwhelming eight-wicket victory.

Punjab Kings put on a sensational batting exhibition at the Eden Gardens, led by an explosive knock from opener Jonny Bairstow, who stayed undefeated with a brilliant 108 off only 48 deliveries. Bairstow's innings, which included eight fours and nine soaring sixes, gave the momentum for PBKS to win, with Impact Player Prabhsimran Singh also contributing significantly with a scorching 54 off 20 balls to set the tone early on.

The team's colossal score of 262-2 is also their highest innings in the IPL, confirming their place in history and highlighting a stunning comeback following a spate of poor performances. Furthermore, the Kings' remarkable run chase tied the joint-highest score in IPL history for a side batting second, with Royal Challengers Bangalore's 262-7 earlier in the season.

With this emphatic victory, the Punjab Kings jumped to eighth position in the IPL rankings, recording their first win in five matches and six critical points from nine games, reigniting their campaign.


PBKS smashed South Africa's record for the biggest successful run-chase in T20 history, which the Proteas set last year when they chased down the West Indies' 258-run mark.
