A player is making his debut from Punjab Kings.
Mohali: The team of Punjab Kings is in front of Lucknow Super Giants on Friday in IPL-2023. This is the second match of this season between these two teams. Earlier both the teams had clashed in Lucknow in which Punjab had won. Now Lucknow has to avenge this defeat but Shikhar Dhawan has brought a new budding bowler to harass KL Rahul’s team. The name of this bowler is Gurnoor Brar.
Gurnoor was not bought by Punjab in the auction, but he came to the team as a replacement. Raj Angad Bawa of Punjab is not playing this season. He is injured. Gurnoor got a chance in his place and now he is going to play his first IPL match.
