Arshdeep, on the other hand, has seven wickets to his name and also bowled the last over against the Royals where he got rid of Sanju Samson.
In the first half of the IPL 2021, PBKS mostly preferred Murugan Ashwin ahead of Ravi Bishnoi. But later Bishnoi got into the team and bowled well. In four games, he accounted for as many wickets at an economy rate of 6.18.
Shami is their leading wicket-taker with eight scalps at an economy rate of 8.16.
The PBKS bowling will also be bolstered with Adil Rashid’s inclusion. Rashid was impressive in the inaugural edition of the Men’s Hundred and he’ll be looking to carry his form.
Harpreet Brar isn’t among the most popular names, but he’s a utility cricketer. In the first leg, the left-arm spinner picked up four wickets at an economy rate of 5.42.
In the three games he played, the Sydney Sixers’ cricketer scored only 16 runs at a strike rate of 80. With the ball, he picked up one wicket, but at an excellent economy rate of 4.80
Deepak Hooda can also use the long handle to good effect. In the first leg, he scored 64 against the Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
In six innings, he scored 28 runs and bagged as many as four ducks. But he gained back some form after playing some decent knocks for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the CPL.
Chris Gayle didn’t quite have the best of campaigns for the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the 2021 CPL. Even in the 2021 IPL, the Jamaican hasn’t lived up to his reputation, scoring 178 runs at an average of 25.42.
Agarwal, on the other hand, has been the apt foil for Rahul in the last two seasons. The right-hander has scored 260 runs at an average of 43.33.
Rahul is also the leading run-scorer for Punjab as he has mustered 331 runs from seven matches at an average of 66.20 with as many as four fifties.
