Punjab Kings has been a disappointment so far over the years in the IPL and they haven’t been able to make the cut despite trying out new methods which were evident in IPL 2021 as well. Apart from the 2014 IPL edition, where they made the finals, they have looked far from dominating and they had to change their name hoping to change the fortunes for them.

One of the positives for the Punjab Kings in IPL 2021 has been the role played by the spinners and the two leggies Murugan Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi have certainly improved massively. Bishnoi made the playing XI after missing out on the first few games and he immediately impressed the bowling. Here is the Punjab Kings (PBKS) Squad, Schedule, Updated Time And Venue.
