Shikhar Dhawan's team earned a much-needed victory in the last game, defeating the Gujarat Titans by 3 wickets. However, Dhawan will also be worried about the inconsistency of his players, especially the bowling attack. Their opponents have a strong batting line-up, and the Punjab Kings' skipper would like a disciplined effort from the bowling attack. The side will expect a good show at the top from Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow, as the two haven't been consistent.

On the other hand, Pat Cummins' side beat all odds to defeat the Chennai Super Kings in the last game by 6 wickets. It was a good show from the bowling attack as they restricted CSK to a small total, and the batsmen chased it down clinically. Cummins shall look to build on this momentum and earn two more points. Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head delivered a good start in the last game, and the side expects a similar show. Aiden Markram proved his class with a match-winning knock, and he will look to add runs in the middle order with Shahbaz Ahmed and Heinrich Klaasen.
