In bowling Trent Boult has been amazing with the new ball and Jasprit Bumrah is doing his job in middle and death overs. In the spin department Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar have come back in form and on slow pitches they will be very crucial.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab’s strength is their opening pair of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal who are scoring runs for fun and have scored around 800 runs between them so far.
