SWOT analysis Punjab Kings
Match Winning Top Order
Punjab Kings possess an enviable top order with the likes of KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and the Universe Boss Chris Gayle who all are capable of winning matches on their own.
If Punjab Kings are to make the playoffs the top 3 will have to replicate their IPL 2020 performances.
Middle Order struggles
Punjab Kings struggled with their middle order in IPL 2020 which was a big reason for their failure to make the play offs in the last 2 IPL seasons. If Punjab Kings have to make the playoffs they will need their middle order to complement their top order.
Nic Pooran showed glimpses of his potential in IPL 2020 with some breathtaking hitting, however there is a feeling that there is more to come from the flamboyant south paw. IPL 2021 can see Pooran turn into a promising player into a consistent match winner.
Fast Bowling Struggles
Apart from Mohd Shami, Punjab Kings fast bowlers struggled for consistency, last year’s big buys in the auction Cotteril and Jordan struggled to repay the faith. Punjab Kings have once again gone in with fast bowlers like Richardson and Meredith who have no IPL experience which might once again prove to be their downfall.
