KL Rahul has been in imperious form for his new side Lucknow with the right-hander already having scored two centuries so far. His opposite number and former opening partner Mayank Agarwal has not quite been in good form. Shikhar Dhawan showed in the last game why his experience is so important for Punjab while Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow would be expected to come good once again.
