Top Picks

In 2019’s T20 matches that the Punjab Lions played, their batting attack was dominated by Kulwinder Singh, who made 394 runs in 8 matches including a century at a staggering average 131.33 and a strike rate of 237.04. He was followed by Gurpratap Singh, who was very far off from him in terms of numbers. He had 183 runs to his name in the same number of matches, but as the format shortens, he can also be expected to match up with his teammate. The team’s captain, Neeraj Tiwari took care of the bowling department, as he scalped 13 wickets in 8 matches and he can be backed to deliver in this season again.

For the Nicosia Tigers, the batting department was led by Yasir Khan, who had amassed 107 runs in 3 matches in the 2019 season. He was closely followed by Roman Mazumder, who got 83 runs off his bat, also in 3 matches.
