LSG vs PBKS: Punjab’s middle order lost the match

The opening batsmen, Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow played really well and gave their team a good start. Even Prabhsimran Singh, who batted third, did a decent job. But unfortunately, the middle-order batsmen didn’t play their part effectively, and that’s why Punjab lost the match.
