PBKS Playing XI vs MI in IPL 2021: Shahrukh Khan is likely to return to the playing after straight failures off the bat from Deepak Hooda. The latter has made 0 & 13 in his last two innings. On the other hand, Shahrukh Khan is coming on the back of the excellent form in recently-concluded TNPL. He had scored 210 runs in 8 matches at a strike rate of 177, which is the need of the hour for KL Rahul & Co.
Meanwhile, Punjab Kings might look to draft Adil Rashid in playing XI. It means Nathan Ellis could miss the game. Others options to the bench are Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Aiden Markram. The track at Sharjah assists the spinners and the slow track could be ideal for the England spinner.
- Shahrukh Khan could be used ahead of Deepak Hooda to boost PBKS middle-order
- Nathan Ellis likely to make way for Adil Rashid on the slow Sharjah track
- PBKS cannot afford to lose this so they are unlikely to make too many chopping changes
- Chris Gayle, Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran are likely to keep their place at the shortest ground in UAE
