Cricket: Punjab Kings betters SA’s T20 record

# Cricket: Jonny Bairstow smashed an unbeaten century as the Punjab Kings recorded the highest successful run chase in T20 cricket with an eight-wicket thrashing of Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League. The England star hit nine sixes and eight fours in his 48-ball 108 to help Punjab overhaul Kolkata’s 261 for six at Eden Gardens with eight balls to spare. Shashank Singh joined in the party with 68 off 28 balls. Punjab’s achievement outshone South Africa’s 259 against the West Indies at Centurion in 2023.
