Punjab, who are set to face table-toppers Gujarat Lions tomorrow (May 1) in Rajkot, are currently lying at the bottom of the heap with just two points in their kitty.

Miller has had a tough time scoring just 76 runs in six innings even though his strike-rate stands at 129. Vijay, on the other hand, has been among the runs and has notched up 143 so far in six innings.
