After a pair of defeats, the Punjab Kings would like to win at home.

Shikhar Dhawan, the team’s permanent captain, has missed the last three games owing to a shoulder ailment but may play in the LSG match.

According to a team source quoted by PTI on Thursday, “He is healing nicely and could be in action tomorrow.” As the competition goes on, PBKS, who have a history of throwing it away, are consciously trying to up their game.

While the dangerous Liam Livingstone is still developing after two games, the top order of Prabhsimran Singh and Matthew Short needs to stay longer in the middle.

Sam Curran, the team’s de facto captain, proved to the Mumbai Indians why Punjab paid him Rs 18.5 crore for his services by demonstrating that he can contribute with both the bat and the ball.

While Nathan Ellis and Kagiso Rabada, who has only played in a few games so far, will need to be compared, Arshdeep Singh has excelled with both the new and old ball.

Since he has only managed to take two wickets in seven games, leggie Rahul Chahar needs to perform significantly better in the middle overs.

Atharva Taide is more likely to make way for Dhawan if he is healthy enough to rejoin the team. On the other side, there is a chance that Nathan Ellis will be replaced by Kagiso Rabada.
