Kings XI Punjab team news

With not much changes in the so far, Punjab may keep the same playing 11 as of their last match. has not been able to help the team when it needed the most and his form may be a point of concern for Ahswin. KL Rahul has been in form but he needs to brush-up more to take his team to victory and not lose it half-way.

With Mohammad Shami, Sam Curran, and R Ashwin, they have a strong bowling attack and they know how to restrict batsmen from scoring.

Punjab is a strong team but they usually falter in mid-overs as opposition starts hitting runs, this is the area where Ashwin would be looking to improve, a glimpse of which was visible in their last match against CSK.
