Meanwhile, Punjab, despite their strong comeback, the inability to close out games led to their early exit in 2020 – the team being let down by some of the big overseas names. The pacers leaked runs in the death overs, the middle order lacked runs, adding pressure on the top order.

The lack of batting depth had also hurt them. In order to make amends, the Kings have amped up its pace attack with INR 14 crore Jhye Richardson and INR 8 crore Riley Meredith. Also, with skipper Rahul and Mayank Agarwal taking the opening slots, Chris Gayle will resume his place at No 3.
