Punjab Kings exhibited yet another disappointing performance in the 2021 edition of IPL. Despite valiant contributions with the bat from KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, PBKS failed to cross the finish line on most occasions. The lack of runs from the middle-order cost them the match on numerous occasions.

Despite dominating the game for the most part of the innings, Punjab failed to hold their nerves during the fag end of the innings. They finished the league stage at number six on the points table, having managed to win only 6 matches out of 14.

In the absence of KL Rahul, David Warner could be a great replacement for Punjab. David Warner has the ability to create a similar impact with the bat.

Add to that, he has a great record as a captain for SRH in IPL. David Warner is likely to play for a new franchise in IPL 2022 and Punjab Kings could be that team. David Warner didn’t enjoy the best of the outings for SRH in IPL 2021.

Though, he has been playing quite well for Australia in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021. In 5 matches, he has played two match-winning knocks with the bat in the Super 12 stage.
