PBKS vs SRH LIVE, IPL 2021 Live Updates: Team Watch
Change in conditions call for change in tactics. Fabian Allen might come into the mix in place of Riley Meredith in order to give PBKS an extra spin option. It will be interesting to see if they bring back Murugan Ashwin or give Ravi Bishnoi a go for the first time this season. Bishnoi was impressive for them last season and Ashwin is familiar with these conditions.
Probable XI: Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul (C & WK), Chris Gayle, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Shahrukh Khan, Fabian Allen, Jhye Richardson, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh
SRH already pressed the panic button last game and ended up making four changes. The ploy didn’t work and there could be more changes in the offing now. They badly need a solution in that middle order and if Williamson isn’t fit, they should at least fancy bringing back Jason Holder who did impress with the ball in his first game.
Probable XI: David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson/Jason Holder, Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad, Kedar Jadhav/Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shahbaz Nadeem, Khaleel Ahmed
