For Punjab, Manan Vohra, George Bailey and their key batsman, Glenn Maxwell are expected to fire in the IPL 7 final. On the other end of the spectrum, the centurion from their last game against Chennai Super Kings, Virender Sehwag isn’t expected to fire in the crucial match. Even Akshar Patel, the bowling all-rounder isn’t expected to do well in the key game against Kolkata.
