Atharva Taide Not Playing PBKS vs MI IPL 2023

Match number 46 of Tata IPL 2023 sees the Punjab Kings facing off against the Mumbai Indians at the IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali. This marks the second encounter between the two teams in this season, and MI will be aiming for redemption of their previous loss to Shikhar Dhawan & Co at Wankhede. Prior to this match, Punjab Kings have made a few changes to their eleven and one such change is Atharva Taide.

PBKS vs MI Match: Why is Atharva Taide Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?

Punjab Kings have not opted for Atharva Taide in PBKS vs MI match no 46 of Tata IPL 2023. This comes as a surprise call because Taide has already scored a fifty in his last outing at Mohali batting at no 3 and was expected to play this game. Taide has been replaced by Matthew Short in the eleven and despite being among the substitutes, he won’t be making it to the eleven as PBKS is currently batting first. Here’s what Shikhar Dhawan said at the toss,

“We would have bowled first. I feel the wicket looks good, it’s not dry, won’t change much. It’s good to bat first and post a big total, looking forward to it. We keep the energy calm and relaxed. Mentally you need to be relaxed, as a leader I need to make sure of it. Short is in, Rabada is out.”
