Punjab Kings is a team that has a very good batting lineup and a very good bowling lineup what they lack is a indian all-rounder which they tried to compensate with Jalaj Saxena which turned out all right but are they satisfied? Because they have a tendency to chop and change too much but if they can just avoid that and stick to the players a bit longer then they have a good side. In the last game their batting faltered a bit on which was a batting better they scored 195. That was due to a par inning from their skipper where he scored 61 with a strike rate of 119 and played 50 odd balls. But this pitch is different and they have to be smart in their approach and bat accordingly. SRH are coming with three consecutive losses and will ne itching to get a win under their belt. If we analyse where has SRH faltered?…It’s their middle order and they made some changes in the last game but that didn’t help. What they need is a bit of experience in the middle order so either Kane Williamson or Kedar Jadhav could be added to the playing XI. And Bhuvaneshvar Kumar also needs to come back in form as he has lacked a bit of execution towards the end of the inning and that too has cost SRH some runs. This Chennai pitch has made the life difficult for the middle order for almost every team but a bit of experience to understand the situation and to soak in the pressure can give them a good balance in their playing XI.
