Punjab Kings have had a below average start of their tournament as they have only two wins from six matches. In the last match against Knight Riders they didn’t bat well. Captain KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal need to give a good start and at a good strike rate so that the likes of Chris Gayle, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran and Shahrukh Khan can do better in middle and end overs. In bowling Mohammad Shami and Ravi Bishnoi are key bowlers for them.
On the other side, Royal Challengers Bangalore have five wins from six matches. Their batting doesn’t have depth but top order batsmen are in fine form and they need to continue their good touch.
