Clubs have figured out the outline to win PSL 2021 matches, and that is to bowl and chase. Sides batting first are yet to win a match in this edition of PSL. The pace bowlers have played better than the spin bowlers so far.
Despite this match being the second game of the day, the batters should feel relaxed out in the middle.
