Punjab Kings (PBKS) meanwhile are coming into the match on the back of a defeat against the Royal Challengers. For the last three games, it was seen that their batters have let them down especially in the absence of captain, Shikhar Dhawan, who missed the last three games after suffering from a should injury and the status of his fitness is unknown. The presence of England’s hard-hitter, Liam Livingstone, will ease some of the middle-order batting issue. Furthermore, Matthew Short has disappointed with the bat and he is likely to be replaced by Sikandar Raza. For Punjab, they will aim to bounce in the coming match.
