Punjab Kings started with a bang posting a grand total of 200 runs and getting the best of Sanju Samson’s attack before his bowling disappointed them against the Delhi Capitals. Deepak Chahar’s swing batting against CSK collapsed.

PBKS has a few problems to address. First, KL Rahul needs to play the role of striker at the top of the order – as he did with his 91 off 50 deliveries against the Royals. He settled to anchor the pubs (61 off 51 balls) against the Capitals while Mayank Agarwal fired at the other end – almost deliberately as if it was an offense for the two openers to chase the bowling in the powerplay . Here, the PBKS sprinter has to learn from the Capitals opening pair – Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw went ballistic in the powerplay and set up the hunt for their franchise.

SRH has had one of their worst starts in the IPL this season. They should have won their matches against RCB and Mumbai Indians but crumbled under pressure at the time of death. The team relies heavily on their top order – namely on the David Warner trio, Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey. They have lost the services of Kane Williamson in the poor middle order.

People like Mohammad Nabi, Vijay Shankar, Jason Holder, Abdul Samad and Abhishek Sharma have not offered significant performances or the game-defining cameos in the lower order. They have 7 failures in 9 flyovers between them in the tournament so far.
