Punjab Kings will be looking to revive their campaign back in the next game against Sunrisers to keep their hopes alive in IPL 2021, and this will be the best time for a comeback too. However, they have a lot of issues in the middle order, which got exposed in the previous game, and they have dropped to the seventh position in the points table.
The likes of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been scoring the bulk of runs so far at the top of the order, and the other batsmen have struggled once these batsmen have been dismissed. They will also consider the options of Chris Gayle into the playing XI as he is a match-winner with the bat, and Nathan Ellis comes into the mix soon. Here is the Punjab Kings (PBKS) Squad, Schedule, Updated Time, And Venue in IPL 2021.
