Punjab beat Delhi Capitals by 31 runs
Prabhsimran Singh hit a blistering century
New Delhi. When Punjab Kings opener Prabhsimran Singh raised his bat in the air after thrashing Delhi Capitals bowlers on Saturday, it was the 80th century in IPL history and the fifth century of the current season. The special thing is that out of five centuries of IPL 2023, 3 have come in the last 15 days. By the end of the league, seeing the way the batsmen have started beating the bowlers, it would not be unreasonable to expect that the picture is still pending.
When Rajasthan Royals opener Yashasvi Jaiswal scored the first century of his IPL career on April 30, he does not seem to be stopping even after that. In Rajasthan’s last match itself, he missed a century by just 2 runs and returned on 98 not out. Why take successful Suryakumar Yadav only. Surya, who came to the IPL with a silent bat, slowly caught the rhythm and caught a lot. On May 12, Sky scored a century to win his team. A day later, in a crucial match, Prabhsimran Singh made the highest score of his IPL career. All this happened in the last 15 days.
Record of 8 centuries
Talking about the most centuries in a season in IPL history, this record is in the name of 2022. There were 8 centuries in this season. In 2016, it took 7 centuries. There are still many matches left in the current season of IPL. The manner in which the batsmen are making a splash, may be a new record will be made in the next few days.

By the way, if we look at the record of 80 centuries so far, then the team of the player who has scored a century 61 times has won. Please tell that Prabhsimran Singh scored 103 runs in 65 balls at a strike rate of 158 against Delhi Capitals. It included 10 fours and 6 sixes. Punjab defeated Delhi by 31 runs to keep themselves in the race for the playoffs. At the same time, the way to the playoffs has been closed for David Warner’s team.
