The team winning the toss is expected to bowl first.
- There is a chance that Krunal Pandya may come in for Karn Sharma or Harbhajan Singh but that’s very unlikely unless he is fully fit.
- Apart from that, no more changes are expected in the team that fielded in the last match.
Kings XI Punjab:
- Players unavailable: Marcus Stoinis, Hashim Amla, and David Miller.
- Eoin Morgan has returned to India to join back the KXIP squad.
- KXIP might look to bring in a bowler or all-rounder in place of Swapnil Singh as he wasn’t effective in the last match.
- There is an outside chance that KXIP may bring in Darren Sammy in place of Martin Guptill and in this case, Shaun Marsh will move to the opening slot.
- Rest of the squad is expected to remain same.
