New Delhi. On the strength of Jonny Bairstow's unbeaten 108 runs, Punjab Kings successfully achieved the biggest target of T20 cricket against Kolkata Knight Riders. Punjab defeated KKR by 8 wickets by creating a world record for chasing the highest target of 262 runs in the history of T20 cricket. There was a shower of sixes and fours at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Punjab Kings batsmen achieved the target of 262 runs in 18.4 overs with 24 sixes. Bairstow played an unbeaten innings in 48 balls and he got full support from Shashank Singh (68 not out in 28 balls). Prabhsimran Singh scored 54 runs in just 20 balls. After the victory, Bairstow said that his team made a great start while chasing, which was very important in chasing the biggest run.

Right-handed batsman Jonny Bairstow said, 'We made a good start which was great. Kolkata Knight Riders also made a good start on the strength of Sunil Narayan. You have to take risks. Sometimes luck will favor you. There are some days when it is not your day. I tried to capitalize on it as much as possible. If the ball is in your area then you have to hit it.

5 big records were washed away in the tsunami of runs… not just one or two but 7 times Punjab successfully chased the target of 200 runs.

Cricket has turned into baseball, right? Forget the score… Punjab captain roared after making world record

Sunil Narayan and Salt gave a blazing start to KKR
Earlier, Kolkata made its second highest score by scoring 261 runs for 6 wickets thanks to the quick-fire partnership of openers Sunil Narine (71) and Phil Salt (75) for the first wicket. Then KKR captain Shreyas Iyer would not even have any idea what was going to happen next. Prabhasimran started batting against the KKR bowlers on a flat pitch, which gave Bairstow some time to prepare for an explosive innings.

'Shashank is a special player'
According to Jonny Bairstow, 'When Sunil Narayan was bowling, he remained calm for us in some overs. Because we knew how important this was to him. Shashank Singh is a special player. He hit clean. His innings was very special. With this win, Punjab team has reached eighth position in the points table with 8 points while Mumbai Indians have slipped to 9th position.
