After losing the toss and being asked to bat first, Punjab Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan revealed that fast bowler Kagiso Rabada is not part of the PBKS playing XI in the SRH vs PBKS IPL 2023 match on Sunday. However, the South African speedster is completely fit and available for selection after having joined the Punjab Kings recently as he missed the opening two games against Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders. Incidentally, Rabada is part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the match. Therefore, Punjab Kings are playing with just three overseas players, Matthew Short, Sam Curran and Nathan Ellis.
