Punjab Kings are often hailed as the underachievers in the Indian Premier League. For the last few years, they have consistently remained at the bottom half of the points table despite the heroic performances.
Their former skipper, KL Rahul is no longer a part of the team. Punjab Kings have appointed Mayank Agarwal as their new skipper. Along with him, Arshdeep Singh was also retained by the franchise prior to the auction. Much to the surprise of a lot of cricket pundits, Punjab Kings have managed to compile an outstanding squad at the auction.
They had a stellar outing in the Mega Auction 20222 and have certainly given themselves the best chance to win the tournament. The franchise made some outstanding buys in the form of Kagiso Rabada, Odean Smith, Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Rahul Chahar, etc. In this article, we have compiled our predicted playing XI of Punjab Kings. Here’s a look at it.

Openers: Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal
Mayank Agarwal will be opening the batting alongside Shikhar Dhawan in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. Mayank Agarwal has been a prolific run-scorer for the franchise over the last few years. He would be looking to carry on his good form heading into the new season. His partner, Shikhar Dhawan has consistently remained in the top-scorer run-charts for the last three years in IPL. He will be eager to start his new association with Punjab Kings.
