Punjab Kings Playing XI Team news

  • Unavailable: Nathan Ellis
  • Nathan Ellis has joined the team’s bio bubble and is expected to be available for selection from Punjab’s next match scheduled against Mumbai Indians on April 13.
  • Jonny Bairstow is all set to feature in the playing XI for this match. In all likelihood, he is expected to replace Odean Smith as Bhanuka Rajapaksa has been way too good while batting at no 3.
  • Jonny Bairstow will most probably bat at no 4.
  • One between Jittesh Sharma or Shahrukh Khan might have to make way for a seamer like Sandeep Sharma or Baltej Singh to balance the bowling unit after Bairstow’s inclusion.
