Present performing status of Punjab and Kolkata Team
The Punjab team is at the bottom of the point table of the Indian T20 League by losing five out of six that they played. This is the present condition of the team when the batsman of this same team is ruling at the top in the run chart of this edition of the indianT20 league.
While talking about KL Rahul and Mayank Agrawal, the former players won an orange cap for his outstanding performance while the latter also performed excellently.
Nicholas Pooran had shown his batting charms in the inning against the Hyderabad team. Despite these wonderful players, bowling is the only cause for such a huge loss for the team. No bowlers in the team ever succeeded in proving himself out in the series.
Another weak point that Punjab needs to consider is the performance of Glenn Maxwell. His performance in this series was extremely poor and the team had to face its dire consequences and after giving such bad performances, it is highly advisable to replace him with another in-form player.
On the other hand, their opponent Kolkata is performing better and making the comeback in the series. Recently, they had won against the Chennai team. In their match against Chennai, Rahul Tripathi knocked 81 and it was the skipper Dinesh Karthik that made difference at the end leading to victory for his team.
Kolkata team’s strategy to trust domestic players like Rahul Tripathi, CV Varun, Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi is adding much to the overall performance of the team. While the bowling of Andre Russell and Sunil Narine is another plus point for the team.
