They are fighting to secure a place in the top two on the points table in IPL 2021. Meanwhile, CSK all-rounder Sam Curran has been ruled out of the tournament. They have signed West Indies all-rounder Dominic Drakes as a replacement for the injured England all-rounder.
On the other hand, PBKS have 10 points from 13 matches so far in the league. Their campaign has been massively hampered by losses in close matches. However, they will hope to win their last league game against the CSK.
