Punjab Kings who have changed their name recently will be looking for their maiden IPL title win after making it to the finals of the IPL only once in the thirteen editions. Punjab Kings did everything right last year but couldn’t finish the games and paid the price for it. They lost too many close games upfront in the IPL 2020 and couldn’t play catch-up cricket at the end.
Their top-heavy batting will be a worry for the opponents but still have an inexperienced bowling lineup apart from Mohammad Shami which will be a concern. They have relied on their youngsters to come good with the ball which hasn’t worked and KL Rahul will be hoping to change the fortunes of the franchise with his captaincy.
