Recap

 

 




 




Today Pune will be up against Kings XI, a team looking to make amends for finishing last in the previous two seasons.

KXIP would be hoping their bold decision of making Glenn Maxwell the captain, ahead of established names like Eoin Morgan, pays off. It remains to be seen what combination Kings XI goes ahead with in their IPL opener

Though they have retained their core group, Kings XI bought eight players in the IPL auction including well known names like Morgan, Darren Sammy, Martin Guptill and Varun Aaron
Pune’s spinners Imran Tahir and Adam Zampa impressed with bowling in last match but Smith will be expecting more from Ashok Dinda and Deepak Chahar considering the Indian pace duo leaked runs against Mumbai.

Ajinkya Rahane was sublime at the top of the order while Dhoni didn’t get too much to do with the bat.
