36 balls i.e. 6 overs and 100 runs in it. In these 6 overs, 4 overs were from Josh Hazlewood while 2 overs were bowled by Mohammad Siraj.
It is said that partnership is needed to win. And, what to say if that partnership is of a century? Punjab Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore on 13th May (PBKS vs RCB) There was only a century partnership in the match played between them. But, the team that did this lost. Actually, this century partnership (Century Partnership) This was the main reason for the defeat of that team. But the thing to note here is that this partnership was of runs, but its script was written with the ball and not by writing the bat. Now how would you say? So it is in this way because runs were not scored here but runs were wasted. RCB’s two bowlers to loot runs- Josh Hazlewood (Josh Hazlewood) And Mohammad Siraj- did it together. The Punjab batsmen thrashed these two bowlers of Bangalore so much that you must have heard the ’36 figure’, but here ’36 balls’ made a big difference in the match.
36 balls i.e. 6 overs and 100 runs in it. In these 6 overs, 4 overs were from Josh Hazlewood while 2 overs were bowled by Mohammad Siraj. That is, if Hazlewood threw 24 balls, then Siraj did the work of looting runs in 12 balls. Together they made a special partnership of 100 runs with the ball.
Hazlewood became RCB’s costliest bowler
Now know how many runs Hazlewood gave in 100 runs and how many Siraj gave. Hazlewood spent 64 runs in his 4 overs against Punjab. This is the most expensive over for RCB by any bowler in a match. Earlier this record was in the name of Shane Watson of Australia, when he gave 61 runs in 4 overs in the year 2016. Hazlewood’s over has become the second most expensive over by any foreign bowler in IPL history. Earlier in the year 2019, Mujeeb Ur Rahman had spent 66 runs.
Siraj looted 36 runs in 2 overs
Now talk of Siraj, who was beaten in such a way that he could not even bowl the entire 4 overs of his quota. Siraj bowled just 2 overs and conceded 36 runs in it. Like Josh Hazlewood, Siraj also did not get a wicket.
Now let’s add up the lost runs of Hazlewood and Siraj. Together they bowled 6 overs i.e. 36 balls and gave full 100 runs on them (Hazelwood-64 runs + Siraj-36 runs). If only this century partnership was not there, then the bet that was in the name of Punjab could have been in Bangalore’s bag as well.
