IPL 2021: Punjab Kings (PBKS) Schedule, Squad, Updated Time And Venue. Punjab Kings haven’t had much of a change in their fortunes in IPL 2021 despite changing the name of the franchise from Kings XI Punjab. They have got all the potential on the side but they have been far too inconsistent and it has impacted their search hunt for their maiden IPL title.
Their best season has been in 2014 when they lost the finals to the KKR side narrowly and since that, they haven’t been able to reach the playoffs stages.
They do have match-winners in their squad boasting of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle and they are failing to produce good performances collectively as a unit. They will be looking to better their performances in the UAE leg as we look into the Punjab Kings schedule, update time, and venue.
