Punjab Kings captain says the ability to intimidate with pace is something the team was missing the last few seasons

Captain KL Rahul is excited to watch the Punjab Kings’ new speed sensation Riley Meredith bowl with “proper pace”, something Rahul believes his team has been missing for a few years to “intimidate the opposition”. The Kings bought Meredith, who made his T20I debut for Australia against New Zealand last month – for INR 8 crore (US$ 1.1 million approx.) at the IPL 2021 auctions. He joins a pace attack that also includes Jhye Richardson this time, apart from Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan, Arshdeep Singh and Ishan Porel.

“I’m really looking forward to watching Riley Meredith bowl,” Rahul said on Red Bull’s podcast Decoding Athletes earlier this week. “I watched him in a couple of games in New Zealand, he could bowl some proper pace, that’s something that I’ve felt we were missing for three or four seasons that I’ve been with the Kings…someone with sheer pace, someone who can intimidate the opposition. So I’m looking forward to watching him bowl from behind the stumps.”
