Abhishek Sharma went past his Virat Kohli in the number of sixes hit this season. Against PBKS, he brought up his third fifty of the season and scored a brilliant 66 off 28 balls to keep his team in the chase. 

He hit five fours and six sixes as he went past Virat Kohli's tally of 38 sixes in 2016. The southpaw is now on 39 sixes and has played his part in taking his team to victory against PBKS in their last league game. As of now, they have moved up to the second position on the points table with 17 points from 14 games. 

Sharma, the youngster ended the league stage with 467 runs and joined an elite list of uncapped players who have scored more than 450 runs in the IPL. His celebration after getting to his fifty was a special one. In the end, SRH won by 4 wickets and moved up as of now to the second position on the points table.

He made a few gestures towards his sister who blew a few kisses towards his brother and seemed very happy with his effort. Despite losing Travis Head early in the chase, Abhishek Sharma kept his momentum in the chase. He added a 71-run stand with Rahul Tripathi to set up the platform and the match was finished by Klaasen who scored an unbeaten half-century. 

Abhishek Sharma's Celebration After Hs Fifty

Meanwhile, Abhishek Sharma joined the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, Ishan Kishan, and Suryakumar Yadav who scored more than 450 runs in their debut season. The season is not yet over for Sharma as he can add to his tally in the playoffs. 

Yet another campaign ends miserably for Punjab Kings who lost nine games out of the 14 played and managed to win just five. Their dream of making the playoffs remained unfulfilled once again. Shikhar Dhawan played just five games and missed the remaining season due to injury. A return from him became impossible. Sam Curran led Punjab Kings in the first half of the season and it was Jitesh Sharma who led them in this game. 

KKR, RR, SRH, and RCB made it to the playoffs finally. RCB defeated CSK in their final league game to make it to the playoffs. They have now won six games on the trot as they made it to the playoffs. They won just one out of their first eight games and won all of their next six league games to make it to the playoffs. 

They will play the Eliminator against either SRH or RR. The final position of the teams will be decided after the end of the KKR vs RR contest in Guwahati later tonight. Meanwhile, RCB's comeback this season is being touted as the best ever among all the teams. They were placed last on the points table almost more than halfway through the first half. They managed to make it to the playoffs pulling off an incredible heist.
