Cricketer-turned-commentator Harbhajan Singh has suggested that it was Punjab Kings‘ (PBKS) inability to regularly rotate the strike which resulted in their loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

RCB put up a decent total of 175 while batting first. Punjab did look like they intended on attacking right from the start, but constant wickets meant they never reached the third gear. The Kings were bowled out for 150, with Prabhsimran Singh being the top scorer with his 46-off-30.

While reviewing the game on his YouTube channel, Harbhajan Singh opined that Prabhsimran, along with other PBKS batters, should learn the art of rotating strike, saying –

“Prabhsimran had a brilliant opportunity today, but he needs to understand that taking singles and rotating strike is also important apart from just playing the big shots. There’s a reason why players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Faf du Plessis have been so successful, and that’s because they know the art of strike rotation.”

Harbhajan Singh wants PBKS players and management to support Shikhar Dhawan as captain

Harbhajan Singh has said that Punjab Kings players and management should support Shikhar Dhawan as the team captain.

Dhawan has not played the last two matches for the team. Sam Curran, who is the acting captain for now, suggested that the opener might make a return in the next match. Although, the extent of his injury is not known.

Shikhar was the Orange Cap holder before he suffered the injury against Gujarat Titans. He has 233 runs in four matches.

Harbhajan Singh told Star Sports Shikhar Dhawan has been the only match winner for PBKS, and that the rest of the team should support their captain in contributing towards winning.

The Punjab side seems is largely dependent on their captain Shikhar Dhawan in the batting department which is a concern. While depending on one player, you can win two or three matches but you cannot win a tournament like IPL. The rest of Punjab players will have to support their captain and take responsibility if they wish to go forward,” he said.
