Punjab Kings (PBKS) are about to take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Match 23 of the Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024) at Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium, Mullanpur, Chandigarh. Punjab captain Shikhar Dhawan won the toss and invited SRH to bat first.  Coming into the game on the back of a three-wicket win over Gujarat Titans (GT), Punjab didn’t make any changes to their winning combination.

However, they were once again without the services of their star all-rounder Liam Livingstone. The 30-year-old also missed out the previous game due to injury and captain Dhawan revealed at the toss that the English cricketer will take more time to fully recover.
