Why bet on Punjab Kings to have the highest opening partnership @1.72?

Punjab Kings have 3 great openers – KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal were the most prolific opening pair in the league till midway through the season in 2020. However, with the emergence of Chris Gayle the Kings staged a remarkable comeback in the second half of the season, and have 3 very important options for the opening slot, making their opening partnerships very assured.

Individual talent – KL Rahul won the Orange Cap last season with a staggering 670 runs in 14 innings, while Mayank Agarwal scored 424 runs in 11 matches. Chris Gayle chipped in with 288 runs in just 7 innings at a remarkable average of 41.   

Much better form comparatively – KL Rahul was at his brilliant best in the first game against Rajasthan Royals, while CSK’s Faf Du Plessis got out for a duck in his first game. Even his partner, Gaekwad could only manage 5 runs. Hence Punjab are favourites to win this market.
