The issue that K11 need to rectify is close game where they play their best cricket. They have only managed to beat RCB so far that too mainly because of dropped catches.  It appears as if KL is also seeking to play consistent innings (for avg?) rather than impactful ones. 

Death bowling n finisher they lack both

 

Neesham, maxi n sarfu may or may not fix finisher issue but death bowling looks a problem.

 

Also stage 2 will come when teans will comeup with a plan against bishnoi n ashwin. Chalo atleast mujeeb is a backup but then again where are death bowlers 

 

Death bowling is an issue and teams like KKR n MI with lower middle order hitting can prove dangeorus for them.

I thought where they lost the plot was while batting.  They unnecessarily  got bogged down towards the end and ended up 25 runs short. Rahul couldn't get going and Maxi missed out on adding 10-12 extra runs with that weird stance and moving around  into he crease. They failed to bat RR out of the game and it came back to sting them in the final few overs.

220 is a good score to defend...they lost in death bowling which is a weakness. shami came in an over late when samson was getting restless and smacked maxwell for 3 sixes in that over. with their openers doing so well they should play the extra bowler instead of Neesham.

Each team is going in with 6 bowling options & Punjab is playing only 5 bowlers out of which two are all rounders & one is a rookie leg spinner. They need a massive overhaul to compete in this tournament. They cannot play both Maxwell & Pooran together, especially with both openers in good form.

Rahul

Agarwal

Nair

Pooran/Maxwell

Sarafraz

Jimmy Neesham

K Gowtham

Jordan

Cottrell

Shami

Bishnoi

they need 2 overseas batsman to as their batting is also a struggle post mayank n rahul and some day they ll fail to

 

2 overseas bowlers have to play, if they picked jordon as death bowler specialist back him....atleast give few games.

This RCB level low patience

This stat addresses what I was predicting before the tournament started: they may need to play 2 overseas bowlers for the death. It feels like they missed a trick by not buying some talented, young Indian batsman. 

 

Shami would be best used if he bowled all 4 of his overs before the death, ideally with 3 in the powerplay itself. 

 

Punjab's batting isn't exactly deep, but Rahul, Aggarwal, and Nair have to take up the responsibility as the most experienced Indian batsmen in the squad to get the team good scores . I don't have much faith in Sarfraz or Mandeep

What is Maxi, Pooran doing? They have flopped so far.

Maxi is a big bust so far. Pooran is at least a newish player. I expect Gayle to replace one of them eventually if they don't start performing. The problem for KXIP is that their season is drifting away already.

They lack good bowlers at death obviously. Also their lack of patience on bowlers and abundant patience on Maxwell is perplexing. 

 

One freakish hitting in sharjah, they abandoned Cotteral as death bowler and bowled Gowtham at the hands of Pandya and Pollard. One freakish last over, they discarded Jordan. They have mujeeb in the wings also if im not wrong.
