The same can be said for their bowlers as well. Still, Tambe who has bowled brilliantly claiming 15 wickets. The rest of the bowlers have contributed in bits and pieces, which just adds pressure to Tambe. If Royals are to win the game, other bowlers such as Faulkner, Bhatia, need to create pressure from their end as well. Will they be able to silence the overpowering Punjab batting line up?
Glenn Maxwell, George Bailey and David Miller have played an important role so far with the bat, hence their position in the competition. Rarely has all three batsmen failed to deliver in a single match. Maxwell is the highest scorer for Punjab with 533 runs. If Rajasthan are to defeat Punjab, their bowlers need to contain these batsmen, which is not an easy task.
batsmen have taken the sheen away from the Punjab bowler, Sandeep
Sharma, who has been the find for Punab, as he is the fourth highest
wicket taker in the tournament with 17 wickets. Balaji has been
impressive as well with 11 wickets against his name. With such
performance shown by Punjab with both bat and ball this season,
Rajasthan Royals have a daunting task in hand to defeat Punjab.
