Skipper of the Punjab Kings KL Rahul he should fight offensive thinking instead of anchoring, according to former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjakar.
Rahul and Co. they have managed to achieve only one victory so far from their four matches and are currently in seventh place in the points table. After an impressive start to theirs IPL Campaign 2021, Punjab fell in the tournament. If Sunrisers Hyderabad faced 120 on Wednesday, it would certainly raise concerns.
The Punjab-based equipment suffered a hat-trick of defeats and is currently struggling to achieve consistency. Speaking about skipper Rahul’s bat show, Manjekar said the Karnataka batman should strive for a better strike as he opens the inning for PBKS.
“I don’t think Rahul’s strike rate helps the Punjab watt unit. In T20 form, you don’t have to play the role of an anchor, especially when you hit first. Rahul has to make sure he gives his side an explosive start at the beginning of inning, “Manjekar said in an exclusive chat with India TV.
Manjrekar also believes that the Punjab team will have to change its best order if it wants to use players like Chris Gale and Nicholas Puran.
“Playing the role of an anchor is not good for your country, it doesn’t lose a single wicket until the 16th and continues to post a lower amount. This also reduces the role of Gayle and Pooran in the line of wadding they face. few supplies are eventually withdrawn as they succumb to pressure, ”Manjrekar said.
Rahul is two fifty years old in four games so far, but has not received support from others. Deepak Huda made impressive performances, but struggled to find consistency. To break into the top half of the points table and keep the playoff hopes alive, Punjab will try to recover quickly from three consecutive losses.
