The Punjab Kings has revealed their jersey ahead of the 14th edition of IPL. The players would be donning a red jersey with golden stripes for the upcoming season as they opted for a different and unique design for a refurbished team. Punjab Kings’, whose former name was Kings XI Punjab, will open their 2021 campaign against the Rajasthan Royals on the 12th of April at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Punjab Kings’ jersey’s primary colour continues to be red, with golden stripes forming the edges of the design. The Lion’s crest would also be present below the primary sponsor logos. Ebixcash would be the chief sponsor of the franchise, while the ones accompanying it are BKT, All Seasons, Lotus Herbals, Dream11 and Jio. Apart from all these, the players will wear golden helmets for the 14th season.
Punjab Kings’ promising campaign of last year ended as they could not win their final league match, needing to do so to qualify for the playoffs. The finalists of the 2014 edition struggled for the most part of the tournament; however, they won five matches on the trot to give themselves a real chance of pulling off a remarkable comeback. KL Rahul, who will continue to lead the side, earned the Orange Cap as he mustered 670 runs in 14 matches at 55.83 with five fifties and a century. They finished at the 6th spot last year.
Punjab Kings were also one of the busiest franchises in the IPL 2021 auction as they created some million-dollar men amongst the eight players they bought. Australia’s pacers in Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith were the costliest, fetching INR 14 and eight crores, respectively. Shahrukh Khan and Moises Henriques also went for INR 5.25 and 4.20 crores, respectively. The other cricketers bought were Dawid Malan, Jalaj Saxena, and Utkarsh Singh.
