While his match fitness will be tested, all eyes will be on whether he can regain his fearless playing style.

Additional Team News

  • Punjab Kings will debut their new home base in Mullanpur, hoping for better fortunes than their previous record at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.
  • Jonny Bairstow’s return bolsters the PBKS top order, but they’ll be looking to address lower-order power-hitting with the potential inclusion of Shashank Singh or Ashutosh Sharma.
