1. Kolkata captain Shreyas Iyer has proved to be a complete flop in the last two matches. It is very important for Shreyas to come back in form to take Kolkata forward in this tournament. If we look at Shreyas’s IPL career, he has played 89 matches so far, in which he has scored 2408 runs. Hoping for a good innings from him in the next match.
2. Senior batsman Ajinkya Rahane played a brilliant innings of 44 runs in the first match but he was flop in the second match. At present, he is the opener of Kolkata and he has the responsibility of giving the team a strong start. He has played 153 matches in IPL so far in which he has scored 3994 runs.
3. Punjab Kings captain Mayank Agarwal played a fine innings of 32 runs in the first match of this season. He had landed as an opener and he played an important role in taking the team to the target. Mayank Agarwal will also have a big responsibility against Kolkata.
4. Opener Shikhar Dhawan played a brilliant innings of 43 runs in the first match against RCB. Shikhar along with Mayank gave a great start to Punjab. Shikhar is a very experienced batsman and is one of the highest run scorers in IPL. Dhawan has played 193 matches in IPL so far and scored 5827 runs.
