In what seems to be yet another tactical decision from Punjab Kings team management, Shikhar Dhawan & Co have dropped seamer Rishi Dhawan for the left-hand batter Atharva Taide who has already scored a fifty this season before getting dropped from the side. Taide is most likely to bat at no 3 for Punjab Kings, a position where he has scored a fifty already. Check what Shikhar Dhawan, the PBKS captain said at the toss,
