Pitch Report:

The  Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur has produced batting-friendly tracks, allowing batters to score runs, especially in the first innings.

Team Analysis:

Punjab Kings

Despite taking every game they have played to the last over, Punjab Kings have registered just two wins in the 2024 season. The Punjab batting has failed to fire, especially in the top order with Jonny Bairstow and Prabhsimran Singh scoring next to no runs. But the likes of Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma have ensured big finishes for the side. In the bowling department, Sam Curran, Arshdeep Singh and Harshal Patel have been consistent but received no support from players like Harshal Patel, Harpreet Brar and Rahul Chahar.
