Punjab’s Best Players
Talking about the playing eleven of Punjab, Punjab can make a change in its playing eleven in comparison to today. Punjab could replace Chris Gayle with David Malan in the playing XI.

Fabian Allen and Moises Henriques could be included in the team once again. Mohammed Shami will lead the pace bowling.
