Team Preview – Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings got off on the wrong foot in their first game at the Chepauk. A timid batting performance saw the Kings suffer a nine wicket defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The onus will be on the middle order to rise to the occasion as PBKS will be looking to get their campaign on track. The game against MI might see world’s number T20 batsman Dawid Malan making his IPL debut.

A change of venues saw the Aussie duo of Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith get benched in their maiden IPL season. The inclusion of Moises Henriques and Fabien Allen seemed to work well for KL Rahul and Co. In the game against SRH, the bowling lineup looked solid and it is the only silver lining for a side that has been struggling for consistency off late.

Yet another no-show by Mumbai Indians’ middle order saw them concede their second loss of the season. The likes of Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya have struggled in Chennai and their poor run has now become a concern for the defending champs. The trio will have to find a way to succeed on the sluggish pitch as they look for some confidence before moving on to Delhi.

The MI bowling unit on the other has been solid as ever. The inclusion of Jayant Yadav has only bolstered the attack as they continue to roar in Chennai. Following a horrid show in the season opener, Rahul Chahar has been brilliant thus far. The pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult too have been in great rhythm. The defending champions are likely to field an unchanged XI.
