Star Pacer Returns, Rahul Chahar to Play Key Role: PBKS Predicted XI Vs KKR
PBKS’s prediction for the IPL 2023 match between XI and KKR is that Punjab can use Harpreet Brar as an Impact Substitute based on the situation.
PBKS said this about XI vs. KKR: Shikhar Dhawan-led Punjab Kings will try to get back to winning when they play Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens in the IPL 2023 on Monday.
In their last game against Mumbai Indians, Punjab did everything right and ended up with a huge score of 214/3. But Punjab’s lack of Kagiso Rabada made it hard for them to get off to a good start after Rohit Sharma was out on 0.
Mumbai took advantage of the chance they were given and beat the huge 215-run goal with more than an over to spare.
Before playing a new game at a different location, Punjab would want Rabada back in the starting lineup. Nathan Ellis did a good job, but Rabada’s experience makes a big difference, which was clear in the game against MI.
Rishi Dhawan did well with the ball in the first few overs, so Punjab will likely stick with the all-rounder from Himachal Pradesh for the next game against KKR.
Given how good Suyash Sharma has been for KKR at their home ground, there will be a lot of attention on the spin department when the setting changes. So, if that happens, Rahul Chahar will have a key role and will ask Liam Livingstone and Sikandar Raja for help.
Harpreet Brar can also be used as an Impact Substitute, based on what is going on.
If we just look at Punjab’s hitting, things look pretty good. Shikhar Dhawan and Prabhsimran Singh have scored a lot of runs, but they haven’t yet put together big totals.
Livingstone, on the other hand, will want to do it again after he and Jitesh Sharma blew Mumbai away with their aggressive hitting.
