At this time, the toughest task in IPL 2020 will be Kings XI Punjab captain KL Rahul. He has been upset once in the super over, a resounding win, and then another loss, from a position where he can well pretend that his side has won. Every loss has been nerve-raining in some way and it is also fitting that KL Rahul is a quiet customer and looks calm, at least on the surface. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has also been in an uncomfortable position with two defeats in three matches, in which he was poised to achieve an incredible victory after the Super Over defeat. Therefore, when the two sides meet in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, at least one side will come up with two points and both captains will be hoping that the margin is enough to make them comfortable.
This would be a close call that would be more shell-shocked after the final loss. KL Rahul’s bowling attack was defending for almost 90 runs in the final five overs and failed, while MI, along with Ishan Kishan, overhauled Royal Challengers Bangalore overall before a superb game and then a poor performance in the super over. Rejected. .
While the win has been comfortable, the loss is quite a beating, so both marches will have a tough ask in motivating their army. While all players are professionals, it must be crushed to lose from a potentially winning position.
But the action is on and the good thing about the IPL is that the matches come so thick and fast that you do not have much time to eliminate past failures. So, this will be another completely new match for both sides and a close competition will be expected.
