3 Stars From Punjab Kings Who Will Be Game Changers:
KL Rahul’s strike rate issues became a blessing in disguise for the Punjab Kings in a venue like Chennai where runs are hard to come and it is not easy for a new batsman to start striking from the first ball. He guided the team home in a low-scoring game staying not out at 60 from 52 deliveries.
He hit three sixes and three fours in the game and broke the shackles with odd boundaries when the run rate looked like creeping up. He got the singles and was ready to keep rotating strike. He captained the team really well and it was a tough decision to bowl after winning the toss, but in the end, it reaped rewards for the franchise. He will be one of the game-changers for the Punjab Kings against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
