Kings XI Punjab are still alive in the run for the Playoffs of the IPL 2020, thanks to the last few games which Rahul’s men won. As the team is on a superb run winning 4 consecutive matches, Punjab is standing on the 5th position on the points table.
Punjab’s next encounter is scheduled with Kolkata Knight Riders on 26th October. It would be an interesting match to watch as the winner will have the 4th position. KKR are currently on that position with equal points as Kings XI but if they loose the game, their net run rate will push them down to the 5th place.
The team is looking settled right now and would not like to experiment much before the play-offs. New Zealand cricketer James Neesham has not got enough chances to play for Rahul’s team. In the matches in which he did get the chance, he could not impress much giving away 122 runs in his 12 overs at an economy of 10.16
Presence of players like Chris Jordan, Gayle and Maxwell has not left space for him in the team.
Jimmy Nisham’s Funny Reply to a Troller
The poor form of the Kiwi all-rounder didn’t go well with the fans and he was on the receiving end of trolls on social media. A Twitter user advised Jimmy Neesham to focus on the game and also called him an overpaid cricketer.
Here’s his reply:
