Punjab Kings have stuck on the same story of not being able to find the best combination and their results have been vastly affected in IPL 2021 as well due to their lack of consistency. They have the problem of picking their four overseas players who will have to keep the balance in the side going and it has been one of their challenges so far. Their lower-order contribution is going to be vital in the UAE leg.
Punjab also will be missing the T20 star Dawid Malan, who has recently pulled out of the IPL 2021 second phase. This will mean that Chris Gayle might play all the remainder of the seven games and it gives options for Punjab in the middle order to chase as well. They are currently at the sixth position in the table and still have a chance to make it to the playoffs. Here is the Punjab Kings (PBKS) Squad, Schedule, Updated Time, And Venue in IPL 2021.
