In a video shared by Punjab Kings on social media, Nathan Ellis said, ‘Hi everyone, Nathan Ellis, I am very excited to join you for the second edition of IPL 2021 in the UAE. I have a few more days in the Quarantine and after that I’ll be ready to go out. So I’ll meet all of you. Cheers. After the withdrawal of Ricci Richardson and Riley Meredith from the tourney, Punjab Kings have replaced Ellis in the squad. By the end of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, the Kings of Punjab were not particularly good and could win only 3 of the 8 matches.
