Mohali, December 14-17 at 09:30 AM IST
Punjab will host Tamil Nadu at Mohali from tomorrow for their next Ranji group encounter. Both the teams are sitting in the middle of the combined Group A and B standings and would be hoping to increase the tempo.
Tamil Nadu has collected 11 points from one win, one loss and three draws out of five encounters while Punjab has accumulated 9 points out of one win, one loss and two draws from four encounters.
Weather is the main concern for the upcoming clash. The pitch and outfield are under wraps for almost two days due to scattered showers and fog. As per the forecast, a little rain is expected to interrupt the game.
Punjab which is in a desperate need of a win to stay alive for knockout games gets a much-needed boost with the return of three key players in the likes of opener Shubman Gill, all-rounder Anmolpreet Singh and pacer Siddarth Kaul.
All the three were busy with India A tour in New Zealand and have returned back to the squad. However, Mayank Markande is still missing from the squad as the leg-spinner is playing in the Emerging Players Tournament in Colombo.
Tamil Nadu also gets a much-needed boost in the form of Vijay Shankar ahead of the clash with Punjab. V Shankar is coming after a stellar out in New Zealand where he struck two fifties in the first and second one-dayers. Along with V Shankar, Washington Sundar has also returned back but will have to wait for some time as he is recovering from an ankle injury.
They have announced a 15-member squad with just one change. B Anirudh has been dropped from the squad.
