New Zealand swashbuckler Brendon McCullum and West Indian Dwayne Smith have been key to Lions’ success as they have given superb starts at the top of the order. The two notched up 110 runs in first 10 overs in a match against Delhi Daredevils, a team whose bowling is considered to be among the strongest in the tournament.

The two teams will lock horns for a second time in the tournament. In the first game played at Mohali, Lions had won by 5 wickets. Punjab have only two points from six games, their only win coming against Rising Pune Supergiants. Their big names such as Glenn Maxwell and skipper David Miller have failed miserably so far. But this time, the Kings will be led by Murali Vijay. Miller has managed to score only 76 runs in 6 matches, while Maxwell has a mere 95 from six games to show for. Openers Murali Vijay and Manan Vohra, however, have contributed well with the bat making 143 and 161 respectively in six matches, reported PTI.
