Divya Delhi :After PBKS and KKR engaged in a run frenzy last night, during which India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin made a pivotal point, the hashtag "Worst IPL" started to gain traction.What will occur next in the IPL? Accumulations of 300 or 350? How about 350 individuals being pursued? Do batters who achieve double centuries do so in 25 balls? In any case, that appears to be the trajectory the league is ultimately following. There have been an excessive number of scores exceeding 200 this season. Last night's match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings paved the way by dismissing KKR's 261 with eight deliveries remaining, setting PBKS to post the highest chase in Twenty20 cricket, let alone IPL.PBKS prevailed by eight wickets on the strength of centuries by Jonny Bairstow and fiftys by Prabhsimran Singh and Shashank Singh, respectively. In support of the bowlers, India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin expressed his understanding and mirrored the sentiments of numerous Indians viewing the IPL. After posting "Save the bowlers, someone please," he added SOS emoticons to his X message. He added, "It has been a ball-and-bat for the final two overs of a Twenty20 match involving a pursuit of 260 or more. Consider that deeply."
