Punjab Kings Playing 11 Team news

  • Unavailable: Nathan Ellis
  • Jonny Bairstow has arrived for the Kings and he is available for selection in this game.
  • With Jonny’s arrival, it’s a big headache for Anil Kumble & Co to replace which player in the eleven.
  • Bhanuka Rajapksa, who was an obvious choice to get replaced by Bairstow, has done an amazing job with the bat in the last two games and should retain his spot.
  • Punjab spent huge bucks in the auction to acquire the services of Liam Livingstone. Therefore, sidelining him after two games won’t be a great idea.
  • Therefore, Odean Smith seems to be the only guy who could make way for Jonny. Smith has been ineffective with the ball, therefore he could be replaced by Jonny.
  • If Odean Smith is replaced, Raj Angad Bawa might also get dropped for one seamer. Sandeep Sharma or Rishi Dhawan could forge their way into the eleven to maintain the balance of the side.
