Kings XI Punjab is underperforming in the ongoing Indian Premier League with just one victory from three games. They were beaten by Rajasthan Royals in their first match, won the second against Mumbai Indians and went down again vs. Delhi Daredevils in the third one. Kolkata Knight Riders clinched the opening game of the event by seven wickets but surrendered against Royal Challengers Bangalore with a difference of three wickets. KXIP will be playing their forthcoming encounter vs. KKR and both units are hungry for two points.
George Bailey, Murali Vijay, Virender Sehwag and David Miller are the main scorers of KXIP but they need fluent and big innings from Glenn Maxwell and Wriddhiman Saha. Anureet Singh is their supreme bowler with seven wickets while Mitchell Johnson, Anureet Singh and Sandeep Sharma are the other wicket takers.
Gautam Gambhir, Andre Russell and Robin Uthappa scored 58, 41 and 35 runs for KKR against RCB whereas Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav and Yousuf Pathan have yet to shine with the bat. Their bowling revolves around Morne Morkel, Sunil Narine, Yusuf Pathan, Russell, Umesh Yadav and KC Cariappa.
