Punjab Kings returned to winning ways with a good win over Mumbai Indians in the last match. Captain KL Rahul is leading from front as he has scored three fifties so far, Mayank Agarwal is also back in form and Gayle too is coming with a good innings in the last match and team will hope that their lower order of Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda and Moises Henriques will do well and Shahrukh Khan will do finisher’s job and in bowling Ravi Bishnoi has made a good start and the likes of Mohammad Shami and Arshdeep Singh too are bowling well, although they need to play one more pacer to strengthen their attack.
On the other side, Kolkata Knight Riders have only one win and have been playing very poor cricket. Their batsmen Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan are out of form and need to bounce back else their struggle can continue and team should promoted Andre Russell to number 5 or 6 and in bowling Pat Cummins has been poor and he should be dropped for Lockie Ferguson who can do better job in death overs.
