Still, one cannot discount RCB for they also possess some of the best batsmen in the modern game, capable of destroying any attack. A team comprising of AB de Villiers, Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle will not be taken lightly by any team, irrespective of the form, for these players just need a few sightings to strike the ball cleanly, which they are easily capable.
With such powerful batting line up on either side, it is the bowlers who would hold the key to victory. Like the RCB bowlers, it is the Punjab bowlers, who needs to bowl the ball in the right areas to control the likes of Gayle, Kohli etc.
It is primarily the batsmen that have been doing wonders for Punjab, hence their bowling has not been tested much. Kohli and his comrades need to take advantage of the situation and attack their bowlers right from the outset and unsettle their bowlers. Punjab does not have many world class bowlers, apart from Mitchell Johnson, who would be under huge pressure if the batsmen fail to perform.
