PBKS Playing 11 for PBKS vs SRH, Match 28 of IPL 2022: Player Availability & Team News

Share

PBKS Playing 11: Punjab Kings will be delighted after their win against the five time champions in Mumbai Indians. Odean Smith was once again given the last over of the game after a forgettable last over against GT. The strong West Indian had a plan this time around and made sure that Punjab are pocketing 2 points  to stabilize their position at the top of the table. Lets take a look at their team composition for the game against SRH.

PBKS vs SRH: Can Jonny Bairstow ace the #3 spot?

Punjab Kings have no availability issues and they are likely to go in with the same winning combination that played against Mumbai Indians

The English wicket keeper batsman is one of the destructive white ball cricketers going around. He is a natural opener who can take massive advantage of the field restrictions. He is also a very good player of leg spin bowling. Since PBKS have two openers already in place, PBKS have decided to use him at #3 which would require him to bat in middle overs where spinners would primarily be in operation.

In theory, this should work as Jonny Bairstow is a very good player of spin bowling but he is struggling to tee off right away without the powerplay cushion. It will be interesting to see how Jonny Bairstow responds to the #3 spot in the coming games.

Highest Paid Player in IPL 2022

Rahul Chahar showed brilliant character in the previous game against Mumbai Indians. He gave away 29 runs in his first over, Dewald Brevis showed no mercy against him, but came back to bowl remaining 3 overs for just 15 runs and helped his team to win the game quite convincingly in the end. He had definite plans for all the MI batsmen, and executed them brilliantly to say the least. Being the lead spinner in the team, he is justifying his role well and good so far.
