Punjab Kings have had a hot and cold season. Their batting has been explosive but that extra aggressive approach has caused them many games. Royal Challengers Bangalore have some quality T20 bowlers in Wanindu Hasaranga, who is chasing the Purple cap, Josh Hazlewood, Harshal Patel, etc., and PBKS batters have to vary the threat RCB bowlers possess.

Jonny Bairstow has finally got going. Punjab Kings were scratching their heads over the lackluster form of Jonny Bairstow. The team management backed him multiple times and the Englishmen finally delivered in the last game with a much-needed fifty against Rajasthan Royals. With Jonny’s return in form, Punjab’s batting looks even more intimidating.

Is Punjab Kings in need of one more spinner? Harpreet Brar seems to be lost in the shadow of the pacers. He had one or two decent outings for Punjab Kings earlier this season but now you can only see him on the bench. With the competition reaching its business end and pitches getting a lot slower, the team management should try bringing in Harpreet Brar as the second spinner for either Sandeep Sharma or Rishi Dhawan.
