The IPL 2021 has been going on at a great pace, with all the teams playing in form, and giving a treat to their fans with the game. However, it is still a sport, and there will always be winners and losers in the game.

After the defeat faced by Punjab Kings, people got into wondering why the team faced the loss, and these three reasons came up as an answer to it:
Firstly, the reason was that none of the Punjab Kings batsmen was able to make a valuable contribution in the match, which could increase the team’s target for the Sunrisers Hyderabad or even become a threat to one of their bowlers. The top scorers of the team were Mayank Agarwal and Shahrukh Khan, who only scored 22 runs each, for the team.
Secondly, Abhishek Sharma and Khaleel Ahmed, the two bowlers of the Sunrisers Hyderabad, themselves took 5 wickets for the team. While Khaleel Ahmed took 3 wickets, Abhishek Sharma took 2 wickets.
