IPL Auction 2023: 3 Reasons Why Mayank Agarwal Will Go Unsold In This Year’s Auction. Punjab Kings have decided to let go of their former captain Mayank Agarwal ahead of the IPL auction 2023.  Mayank Agarwal’s association with the Punjab Kings ended following his poor batting performance in the IPL 2022.

Punjab Kings looked like a shadow of themselves under Mayank Agarwal’s captaincy, far from impressive, and Mayank had a terrible campaign on a personal level. Despite possessing a strong team, the Punjab Kings finished sixth in IPL 2022 under Mayank Agarwal’s captaincy.

Mayank Agarwal is a big Indian player who might go unsold during the IPL auction 2023. Mayank Agarwal was the skipper of Punjab Kings in the last season but the franchise released him from the squad before the IPL auction 2023.

Punjab Kings could not reach playoffs under his captainship and Mayank Agarwal also came up with a poor show last season. He scored 196 runs in 12 IPL 2022 games at an average of 16.33. Mayank Agarwal also fails to get a chance in the national team nowadays.

Mayank Agarwal’s last appearance for India was in March 2022 in Tests and November 2020 in ODIs. Hence, the right-handed batsman might go unsold during the IPL auction 2023.
