Live Score SRH vs PBKS, IPL 2021, Today's Match: Nathan Ellis to bowl the final over. Bhuvneshwar misses the first delivery, but he doesn't care, he's already off and sprinting. Holder on strike. He needs 16 from 5 to win it. Oof, that's a terrible decision from Ellis, it's got good length on it and Holder sends it looping away for a six over long-on. Ellis needs something different. He comes up with something different, it's a slower, shorter and wider ball that looks a bit inelegant, but denies Holder the opportunity to hit. It's a dot. Another dot, it's a slightly wider yorker. Wide. Holder then runs a double. 7 runs needed off the last ball. A six will be a super over. Holder has only one choice really, he needs to get it up and over the boundary rope. Ellis has a few choices at his disposal. What kind of delivery will he go for? It's a low full toss, and Holder can't get enough on it! It falls well short of the boundary rope, and the Punjab Kings win by five runs.
Preview: In Punjab Kings' last match, pace bowler Kartik Tyagi defended four off the last over as they were edged out by Rajasthan Royals.
