KAR vs PUN Dream11 Team News:
No changes are expected after an emphatic win. Top-order Devdutt Padikkat and Karun Nair will open the innings again, followed by Rohan Kadam and Pavan Deshpande. Wicket-keeper Shrijith will now be looking to hit a half-century after missing out in the previous game. They have a strong lower-order and bowlers did a neat job in the last game. They might miss the 6th bowling option but if their 5 bowlers perform with consistency then there is no issue.
Simran Singh smashed some much-needed runs in the powerplay but the other top order failed to impress with the bat. Gurkeerat Singh and Anmol Preet played a sensible inning in the middle order. Punjab’s main strength is the bowling department as they are stuffed with top-class IPL stars. Punjab can even try Mandeep Singh to open the innings as they lack consistency in the powerplay.
