New Delhi: The Punjab Kings, which have failed to advance to the playoffs in the last six IPL seasons, will put full emphasis on winning the trophy this season. Let us know that for 13 years the Punjab team has not been able to win the IPL Trophy. The Punjab team were close to qualifying for the playoffs last season, but ultimately lost to the Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings and their hopes of reaching the playoffs were dashed. The Punjab team finished sixth the previous season.
Gail’s power near the Punjab
The Punjab Kings have a powerful hitter like Chris Gayle who can spin the game on his own. Punjab’s batting order is strong thanks to captain Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Puran and Mandeep Singh. The Punjab team included world number 1 T20 drummer David Malan of England and Shah Rukh Khan, who performed brilliantly in the Mushtaq Ali T20 trophy.
In a versatile team like Mojes Henriques
Apart from that, the Punjab had taken Australian point guard Zahe Richardson for Rs 14 crore and Riley Meredith for eight crore rupees. Punjab also included versatile Moises Henriques, who performed better in the series against India. The Punjab team have spoons Ravi Bishnoi and M Ashwin, who were the Punjab’s most successful bowlers last season. The Punjab has bowlers like Mohammed Shami in the fast bowling attack. He returns after being injured. The Punjab Kings will have their first game of this season with the Rajasthan Royals on April 12.
