Aakash Chopra says “I’m just as unsure as to the Punjab franchise.” Chopra is uncertain about what could be Punjab King’s best approach. If they happen to win the toss. He is disposed towards the prospect of chasing given the franchise’s sudden batting unit. Punjab Kings have only won a single game. While chasing during this season of the 2021 Indian Premier League.
Also, the win came against the Mumbai Indians in the first leg of the competition in Chennai. The franchise had a chance to seal another successful change. But hesitate at the end against the Rajasthan Royals to lose by 2 runs. Chopra admits that he is unsure. Whether the Punjab Kings should pick to bowl first after winning the toss.
“I’m just as unsure as to the Punjab franchise, what is the best way to go? But maybe with Rahul, Agarwal if he is fit and available and the class of Gayle, Markram, and Pooran, maybe, yes they have plenty of explosive power in their batting department, so if a couple of the fire, they can chase big totals,” Aakash Chopra said.
Punjab Kings could see themselves out of the playoff race. If they suffer a defeat against Knight Riders tonight. Also, Dale Steyn does not believe that chasing is necessarily the right way to go. He believes PBKS has more important issues to resolve first.
“I’m as confused as they are sometimes. They are a wonderful team though and they should just go out there and express themselves. Chase or bat first, it’s pretty much the same thing for them, they just need to do it properly,” Steyn added.
