Rishi Dhawan can get another chance to appear in the playing XI. He has also didn’t gave any chance of joy to Punjab with his performances. But, because of the lack of choices for Punjab, management can go with him in playing XI against SRH.

Jitesh Sharma would be the captain and management’s choice for number 5. He can provide a balance to the transition of lower-middle order or lower order of the batting. In that case, he may also get a call in playing XI against SRH.
Shahrukh Khan has also disappointed in this season. Although, he may get another chance to showcase his performance or to make a comeback in their last game of this season.
There is quite a bit stability in Punjab’s middle order with the presence of English batting sensation Liam Livingstone and team’s captain Mayank Agarwal. They both can carry away the good opening start from Dhawan-Bairstow to a big score.
