Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Ajinkya Rahane, Marcus Stoinis, Chris Woakes, Ravichandran Ashwin, Lalit Yadav, Kagiso Rabada, Tom Curran, Avesh Khan

Punjab Kings

On a surface that provided some movement, Lokesh Rahul and co. looked ill equipped and gave their wickets away in the initial Powerplay overs.

In the batting department, the side will be relying heavily on the top-order trio of Mayank Agarwal, Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle to deliver crucial runs in this contest.

While Rahul was run-out due to terrible mix-up with Chris Gayle, Agarwal perished for a duck in the opening over of the innings. The team management will be hoping that experienced players like Mayank Agarwal and Chris Gayle adopt a conservative approach in the initial Powerplay overs.

Nicholas Pooran perished for a duck, while Deepak Hooda failed to repeat his heroics from the previous game.

Coming in at no.6, rookie batsman Shahrukh Khan showed a lot of maturity and finished the innings with the top-score of 47 runs off 36 balls. Due to his efforts, Punjab managed to push their beyond 100-run mark.

In the bowling department, the side will be relying on the likes of Mohammad Shami, Jhye Richardson and Arshdeep Singh to create crucial breakthroughs against Delhi.
