IPL 2023 PBKS: Punjab Kings Full Squad, Predicted Playing XI, Coaching Staff And Sponsors List. The Punjab Kings have never been very much ascertained in the IPL over the years. They didn’t seem to accomplish great results in any of the editions, with their best play coming in the 2014 edition of the IPL. PBKS have been a consistent part of the IPL since 2008. But over all these years, they never seemed to impress their spectators with their performance in the tournament.
Despite entering the auction with a huge purse of 32.20 crores, the PBKS management appeared quite unconcerned during the mini-auction and only managed to cringe out with 6 players, with only one big inclusion in Sam Curran for a huge 18.5 crores. Other bidders included Sikander Raza, Harpreet Bhatia, Vidwath Kaverappa, Mohit Rathee and Shivam Singh.
PBKS Full Squad For IPL 2023
PBKS Squad: Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow,Shikhar Dhawan, Shahrukh Khan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Jitesh Sharma, Raj Angad Bawa, Rishi Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Atharva Taide, Arshdeep Singh, Sikandar Rajza, Nathan Ellis, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Prabhsimran Singh, Harpreet Brar, Mohit Rathee, Vidwath Kaverappa, Baltej Singh, Shivam Singh,Harpreet Bhatia.
PBKS Predicted Playing XI IPL 2023
Top 3 – Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan and Prabhsimran Singh.
The Englishman will open alongside Indian veteran Shikhar Dhawan, hoping that he marks his return to the field before the 2023 IPL. This opening player can be very formidable when both batsmen are in touch.
At no.3 we can expect the likes of Prabhsimran Singh who is ready to set fire to the big platform of IPL after his blazing performance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Middle Order – Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma and Sam Curran.
The Punjab Kings have a powerful middle order led by huge-hitting Livingstone, thanks in large part to Shahrukh Khan’s use of long leavers and hard-hitting wicketkeeper-batsman Jitesh Sharma, who was recently called up for T20Is against Sri Lanka and New Zealand.
The English all-rounder and T20 world cup MVP was selected for a record fee of 18.5 crores. PBKS has great expectations from the young and prolific pacer from England.
Lower Order and Bowlers: Vidwath Kaverappa, Rahul Chahar, Kagiso Rabada, and Arshdeep Singh
In the T20 World Cup, India’s top bowling spearheads were Rahul Chahar, veteran protea pacer Rabada, and young Indian paceman Arshdeep. Kaverappa took 18 wickets in seven appearances in his first edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, and he is one of the young rising stars in Indian cricket.
