IPL: Gujarat will take on Rajasthan in Qualifier 1 tomorrow

MUMBAI, India: Gujarat will take on Rajasthan in Qualifier 1 on Tuesday while Lucknow will meet Bangalore in the eliminator in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday.

On Sunday, Punjab Kings notched a consolation five-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in its last Indian Premier League game.

Liam Livingstone smashed an unbeaten 49 off 22 balls and was dropped twice as Punjab raced to 160-5 with more than four overs to spare.

Left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar picked up 3-26 in the middle overs that earlier restricted Hyderabad to 157-8 in its 20 overs.

Opening batsman Abhishek Sharma top-scored with 43 before Livingstone plucked a good catch on the edge of the boundary in Brar’s second over.

Punjab ended the season in sixth place with 14 points from 14 games. Hyderabad, which won five of its first seven league games, could win only one more and ended up with 12 points.
