PBKS spin bowling coach Sunil Joshi has said that Shikhar Dhawan is on the road to recovery and could be fit for the next game ahead of the clash against KKR on April 26, Friday. Shikhar was injured ahead of Punjab's clash against RR on April 13 and has missed all the matches since then. Sam Curran has since then donned the captaincy hat for PBKS.

Speaking ahead of the clash against Kolkata at the Eden Gardens, Joshi said that PBKS have missed the batting services of Shikhar since his injury. The PBKS skipper was seen in the nets ahead of the clash against KKR and Joshi feels he could be ready in time for the match against CSK on May 1.

"Shikhar Dhawan was injured on the ground, we miss his batting services. He is on the road to recovery. We saw him batting at the nets. Hopefully, he is in the recovery process and would be fit for the next game," said Joshi.

PBKS have lost

three matches on the trot since Shikhar has been injured and currently sit in the 9th spot on the points table with just two wins to their name. Joshi said that the focus for the team would be to focus on rising again and taking things one ball at a time.

"It's important to understand that any team will go through wins and losses. Our focus is to rise again. This is a short format of the game, where you might get hit for a six on the best ball or you get a wicket on a loose ball," he said.

"It depends on how you prepare your body for the day of the game and how mentally relaxed you are. Every time you face the stress of performing, your body may not fire. You have to be calm down and play one ball at a time," Joshi added.

KKR are currently in the second spot on the table and will pose a big threat for Punjab. After the game against Kolkata, PBKS would travel to Chennai to face CSK.
