With their Indian Premier League 10 playoff hopes hanging by a thread, a resurgent Kings XI Punjab will hope to take advantage of the Gujarat Lions’ slump when the two teams clash on Sunday.
The Punjab franchise, who are fifth in the standings with 10 points from 10 matches, racked up two back-to-back victories coming into this game — their ten-wicket victory over Delhi Daredevils followed by an easy win over bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bengaluru on Saturday.
All-rounder Axar Patel has been a revelation for the Punjab franchise this season. Against RCB too, he scored 38 off 17 balls and then claimed three wickets to help Kings XI romp to victory.
On the other hand, the Lions are seventh in the table with just six points from 11 matches.
