It will be a stellar effort from the Punjab Kings side if they managed to make it to the playoffs in UAE in IPL 2021 having lost five games already in the first phase of the tournament. The Punjab Kings side has got all the potential in the side and with head coach Anil Kumble, the onus will be on them to perform as a collective unit together. They do have some areas to work on and they cannot rely a lot on KL Rahul.
Chris Gayle’s form has been on and off so far in IPL 2021 and he hasn’t performed well enough in the CPL 2021 as well. He will be keen to make some runs and get back in form ahead of the T20 Worldcup for West Indies. Ravi Bishnoi is another player from the Punjab Kings who is a match-winner and he should get a look in. Here is the Punjab Kings (PBKS) Squad, Schedule, Updated Time And Venue.
