Kings XI Punjab 2020 thread!

Recommended Posts

Got rid of run donors Mohit Sharma and Brainder Sran for good. Now they may have to get rid of Jordan. Maxwell is another failure. When two of international players flop so badly, the team will find it tough to claw way back. There is no point of Maxwell and Jordan play just the odd couple of good matches and fail in most. Success percentage needs to be good from international players.

 

Rahul needs to score faster. In last IPL too he could not pace some innings as he slowed down. This time too he has reduced his run scoring pace in middle overs - a time when spinners are on. 

 

His 54 ball 69 innings was poor considering it was the batsmans dream batting wicket at Sharjah with small boundaries as well. Something like 225 for 2. What's the use of batting so slow on that ground and end up saving 8 wickets. Pathetic approach given the conditions. It's not 70's where one batsman sticks to wicket no matter how bad his strike rate is and only the other batting partner takes the onus to score runs at good sr. One can't bat at strike rate of Ajinkya Rahane at Sharjah. Consolidating even with 8 wickets safe is not acceptable given the context of the match.

They were poor at auction, only chance such sides have is when 3-4 player have an extra ordinary season. 

They have lost few close games

RR coz rahul batted slow 

1st game mayank had a chance

 

 

Both have to make sure if its their day then win the game

Can you explain?

Problem is then who to bowl in death as cottrell n shami arent also good in death

 

It's not like Jordan is setting the stage on fire with his death bowling either.. He is overrated.. I'd rather have Neesham who can contribute with the bat..

Unfortunately, there aren't many options for them.. They'll have to settle with Cottrell and Shami and hope they come good.

Yes, that's a good option too. Just tired of seeing Jordan and the hype around him being a death bowler

Mujeeb is one of the best bowler in IPL. Punjab should have given Mujeeb a chance in all 14 matches, rather than picking Jordan. Mujeeb is more likely to give better returns than Jordan as far as only bowling is concerned. Jordan though is a way better fielder and batsman than Mujeeb. Perhaps Punjab went for the extra things from Jordan rather than expecting just much better specialist bowling from Mujeeb. Captaincy blunder.

Captaincy has definitely affected KL Rahul. He had to eschew wicket keeping & also batting very unlike him. Absolutely poor decision to burden your best player with captaincy when clearly he is not even the real authority. This franchise has no future, will do musical chairs with captain-coach next year as well
