Much to the dismay of Agarwal, the opening pair combination didn’t take off as Johnny Bairstow’s horror season continued after he was dismissed after scoring just a solitary run. It is expected that the Punjab Kings skipper Mayank Agarwal will come to crease at No.4. Following Bairstow’s dismissal, Bhanuka Rajapaksha came to the crease as the one-down batter.

Mayank Agarwal who has started for his side on the previous 8 occasions hasn’t been in the best of his form and thus his confidence in batting took a major hit. IPL 2022 hasn’t been great for Mayank and his batting stats are a vivid proof of the same.

The skipper played a total of 8 matches previously where he managed to score just 161 runs. With a single half-century and a personal highest score of 52 this season, it’s quite a big letdown for the fiery batter.

The destructive batter hasn’t been able to unleash his fury and boasts of having a low average of 20.12 and a nominal strike rate of 128.80. Agarwal has hit 15 fours and 6 over boundaries in his previous 8 innings this season.

Punjab Kings are in a tough spot as of this moment. Currently, the team has 8 points from 9 games. If they fail to win today’s encounter against Gujarat Titans, then PBKS will have to win their remaining next 4 games with high NRR to get a chance to make it to the playoffs.
