The Punjab franchise has made a change to their name for the upcoming IPL and they will be expecting that the change works as they haven’t won an IPL yet. Punjab have made it to the finals only once in 2014 but lost to the Kolkata Knight Riders despite scoring big in the final.
They had a new captain KL Rahul who has performed brilliantly but hasn’t been able to get the team over the line. The luck never favoured them and lost a lot of close games which they should have easily cruised to victory. Here are 4 stars from Punjab Kings who will have the onus of winning the title.
4 Stars From Punjab Kings(PKBS) Who Will Have The Onus Of Winning The Title:
The Punjab captain bagged the orange cap in the previous edition of the IPL and has been in scintillating form in the last few seasons of IPL. He has scored 670 runs in the 14 games he played with the highest score of 132 in the season. He will continue as the captain of the Punjab franchise for the upcoming edition.
There have been a lot of questions raised on him about his strike rate going in the downward direction in IPL, and the weak middle order has been the main reason for it. However, this IPL will be much different and he will look to dominate proceedings from the ball one. He has some staggering numbers in T20 cricket and is one of the best T20 players going around.
