Capitals who could never have genuine training coming into the game, skittled the PBKS side for only 115 runs prior to pursuing it down in 10.3 overs, attributable to a power-stuffed innings from Australian David Warner.

Talking in the press conference after the game, Punjab batsman Jitesh Sharma tended to the batting issue of the group and conceded that things were not going appropriate for the team.
Will Be Transforming Our Framework: Jitesh Sharma On Issues With Punjab Kings Batting
“We have decided only one approach for this tournament, which is to play attacking cricket. We probably have not been able to apply it based on the situation we are in,” said Sharma.
Diving into the issues with the ongoing technique Sharma said that their framework isn’t working and they will be transforming it in the following game. “We just had a meeting about it. The player sat down and talked about the issue in hand. As you can see that everyone in the line-up is a match winner, and we are waiting for one-two people to click in a game.”
“We have decided that we will give ourselves some time to settle in the game and play long innings and gain back the confidence that we have lost,” Sharma revealed.
Punjab Kings have one of the most dangerous batting line-ups in the Indian Premier League, however, they were all back in the hut for only 115 in their last game. Liam Livingstone and Shahrukh Khan flopped in the game attempting to be super aggressive against the Delhi bowlers.
Punjab has an intense contest in front of them, confronting table clinchers Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants in two of their next three games.
