Punjab Kings will have to brighten their journey in the remaining games of IPL 2021 as they haven’t been at their best form yet in the first phase. They still have lots of work to do in the UAE phase in terms of their balance and squad selection. At the moment, they have lacked the winning habit at most and they should invest a lot in bringing a lot of positivity to the side.
KL Rahul has been the main man for the Punjab side and the skipper has been in amazing form in the recent two to three IPLs. His consistency has been remarkable but his strike rate has been dropping a touch which should be one of the concerns. He shouldn’t play the anchor role and instead, look to get to his olden touch of going for it in the powerplay.
