Mayank Agarwal was appointed as the skipper of Punjab Kings by the management ahead of IPL 2022. He has been one of the leading run-scorers or the side along with KL Rahul between 2018 to 2021. He has scored 400-plus in the last two seasons for Punjab. This year he will have a new opening partner in Shikhar Dhawan.

Punjab Kings went into the IPL auction with the highest purse. With 72 crores available, they made some really good selections in the mega auction. The players they bought include names like Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow and Odean Smith. Punjab also bought back Shahrukh Khan who showed a lot of promise in IPL 2021. Speaking about his team’s chances, Mayank Agarwal said that he would like to believe that they have assembled a title-winning squad.

The management has pinned hopes on its latest recruits to change the team’s fortunes. “We like to believe that we do have a title-winning squad and now it is upon us as players to execute our skills under pressure and see what we can make out of it,” Agarwal said.

Punjab Kings kick off their IPL 2022 campaign by facing Royal Challengers Bangalore in their first game on March 27 at the DY Patil stadium. They bought a total of 23 players in the mega auction including some of the best names in the shortest format of the game.
