The 60th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 took place between the Punjab Kings (PBKS) and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The Mayank Agarwal-led side registered a massive win at the Brabourne Stadium on Friday.

Electing to bowl first, RCB were on the back foot straight away following a blazing start by the PBKS openers. Jonny Bairstow was the wrecker-in-chief as the team registered 83 runs in the first six overs. Liam Livingstone top scored with 70 runs to propel PBKS to a massive 209-5 in 20 overs.

In reply, RCB crumbled under the pressure of the required run rate and were never in the run chase. The constant fall of wickets led to their downfall, with Glenn Maxwell providing a brief resistance in the middle overs. RCB would go on to lose the match by 54 runs.
