Punjab Kings have been truly disappointing for a long time with the amount of quality they have in their squad for IPL 2021 especially and still haven’t managed to break the code for excellence. They have managed just one final so far in thirteen years which is unbelievable and haven’t made the playoffs consistently as well. They are currently lagging at the sixth position in the points table with 3 wins in 8 games.
Punjab still has a great chance to redeem themselves in the UAE phase of IPL 2021, but they will have to be on the mark from the word go. They do not have much time for assessing the conditions and this will be a big phase in the future of the side. With the mega auction coming up next year, the Punjab franchise must start picking their players for the future as well. Here is the Punjab Kings (PBKS) Squad, Schedule, Updated Time And Venue.
