Lack Of Bowling As Per Plan:

There was no clear plan in KKR’s bowling. Except Sunil Narine, all the bowlers were badly beaten. Punjab batsmen had scored 150 runs till the 15th over.

Not Being Able To Dismiss Jonny Bairstow:

Jonny Bairstow played an important role in Punjab’s victory. He played an unbeaten inning of 108 runs in 48 balls, which included 8 fours and 9 sixes. KKR bowlers failed to dismiss him, which made the path to victory easier for Punjab.
