In the Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL 2023) on Saturday, Punjab Kings (PBKS) kept their playoff hopes alive by defeating Delhi Capitals by 31 runs. The team defeated Delhi Capitals by 31 runs despite a target of 168 runs. Prabhsimran Singh played a brilliant inning for Punjab, who scored 103 runs in 65 balls. This was his first century in the Indian Premier League. During this, his strike rate was 158.46. He hit 10 fours and six sixes. His innings was praised by former India opener Virender Sehwag and took a jibe at the most expensive player of the league, Sam Karan.
Praising Prabhsimran Singh, Virender Sehwag said on Cricbuzz, “Punjab Kings have taken advantage of the opportunities given to Prabhsimran. Now he has to continue the rhythm. I think PBKS will benefit greatly from such a player. When he first came, he was bought for a lot of money (Rs 4.8 crore). This time he got much less (Rs 60 lakh). But he proved his talent today.”
What did Sam Curran do?
Virender Sehwag further said, “Prabhsimran showed that he can score a century. He was bought for Rs 60 lakh and if a player scores that much and wins you a few matches, nothing gets better than that. You bought Sam Curran for 18.5 crores, what has he done?”
