IPL 2023: Shikhar Dhawan, who has been a prolific run-getter till now for PBKS, has been out of action since the team's last two matches.

Dhawan has been out ever since recuperating from the injury. He has in the process missed two matches for PBKS, one against LSG and the other against RCB. In his absence, Sam Curran put on the captaincy cap. However, is the same arrangement set to continue today?

While this statement was given on April 20, and the match is on April 23, thus Dhawan may or may not be a part of the game against Mumbai Indians.
