Earlier, there was no surprise in the toss as Shreyas Iyer won the toss and opted to bowl first. That means, Mayank Agarwal’s Punjab Kings will have a big work at hand.

As for Playing XI, Shivam Mavi comes back in KKR with Sheldon Jackson moving out to make way. The reason being KKR wanted an extra bowler with Andre Russell unlikely to bowl considering his injury. For Punjab Kings, the obvious change is Kagiso Rabada, who comes in place of Sandeep Sharma.
