PBKS Playing 11: The Punjab Kings will lock horns with Chennai Super Kings in their last league fixture of the tournament. The team need to win this match by a huge margin to make their case for the playoffs.
In their last league match, they failed to chase down the total and fell short by 5 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore. It was a fine effort by the bowlers to keep the opposition at around par score, 164. In the bowling unit, Mohammed Shami and Moises Henriques picked 3 wickets each. While the openers, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal were quite impressive to give a good start to the team, but the middle order failed to contribute enough and the team lost the game.
Punjab will likely go for some change, as this is there last game and they might give chance to the youngsters of the team. Pooran can also make way for Adil Rashid with a couple of more changes. Henriques got his place in the XI very late, but performed excellently well in the last game with his best T20 bowling figures. Punjab will hope to put out their best combination, and hope for a win to end this season. The other players like Aiden Markram, Shahrukh Khan and Sarfaraz Khan are expected to retain their places in the Playing 11.
