Punjab and Hyderabad are two teams who are yet to get their team combination right after almost two weeks into the 2021 edition of the Indian T20 League. KL Rahul’s team started off with a narrow win over Rajasthan, but the last two matches have exposed their weaknesses.
They will need a complete makeover, and that might require changes in personnel. Personnel changes are something Hyderabad tried in last game, as they made four changes after losing their first two games. But none of those changes clicked and they are back to ground zero again.
