Jonny Bairstow, who had scored a brilliant century in the last match, has also arrived here. Rishi Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Atharva Taide, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, Harshal Patel and Nathan Ellis were all mesmerised by the beauty of snow laden Dhauladhars and were seen clicking pictures of the hills.

Kagiso Rabada, right-arm fast bowler from South Africa, and Harshal Patel, who has been honoured with the purple cap for taking the maximum (14) number of wickets in this season, have also arrived with their family members.

  • Punjab Kings will play two matches at HPCA stadium, Dharamsala, on May 5 and 9.
  • Sam Curran will lead the side in the absence of Shikhar Dhawan, who has been ruled out due to an injury.
  • The players will hit the nets on Friday.

The team and the staff, including the coaches and physicians, boarded the special buses and headed for Radisson Blu hotel, where they would be staying for the next couple of days.

The players would be seen in practice sessions at the HPCA Ground tomorrow, when the CSK players would arrive in Dharamsala.
