Kings Punjab franchise played two games against the Delhi Capitals, in addition to a fixture each against all other teams.
The first phase of IPL 2021 was poor performance. The team has registered only three wins in their eight outings.
Kings Punjab will have the aim to win all the matches in the UAE leg and qualify for the IPL 2021 playoffs.
Predicted the first Playing XI of Punjab Kings:
Openers: KL Rahul (C and WK) and Mayank Agarwal – an opening partnership of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal had great in the UAE last year. It will be great if due can replicate it in 2021.
Middle-order: Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran and Shahrukh Khan – Gayle had a good performance in the last year in UAE. Nicholas Pooran looked out of touch in the first phase of IPL 2021, scoring only 28 runs in seven matches. Shahrukh Khan, who batted well in the middle-order during the first phase, is likely to retain his place.
All-rounders: Deepak Hooda, Fabian Allen and Chris Jordan – D. Hooda scored 116 runs and picked up two wickets in the first phase of IPL 2021. Jordan scalped nine wickets in ten matches for Southern Brave
Bowlers – Mohammed Shami, Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh – Arshdeep Singh and Mohammed Shami will probably be the two Indian fast bowlers in the team. Bishnoi made his IPL debut in the UAE last year and scalped 12 wickets at an economy rate of 7.37.
