Punjab Kings IPL 2023 Squad: Players to Watchout
#1. Shikhar Dhawan
The skipper of the Punjab Kings will have a lot of responsibility on his shoulders as he goes on to lead the side for the first time. Dhawan emerged as the top-run scorer in the previous season with 460 runs and he will be expected to reciprocate his batting prowess in this year as well. He is a vastly experienced campaigner and led the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the previous edition. Hence, the side will count on him to finally bring the trophy home.
#2. Kagiso Rabada
The South African bowler doesn’t need any introduction as everyone is well aware of the lethal pace that Rabada generates which can startle even the best of batsmen. He is amongst the world’s greatest fast bowlers at the moment and he proved his mastery by picking 23 wickets in the previous edition of the IPL. Rabada will have the responsibility to lead the bowling attack and show his skills in the beginning and at the death.
#3. Shahrukh Khan
This talent impressed everyone with his batting while playing as a finisher for the side. With his debut in 2021, he showcased his wide array of shots and his ability to strike big against the white ball. He will be heavily backed by the franchise to give strength to the batting line-up in the death overs and add those useful runs at crucial moments.
#4. Arshdeep Singh
This young man rose to the opportunity and really turned things around for himself in the IPL. His brilliant display of bowling earned him a national call-up and since then, Arshdeep has been on fire! He can bowl toe crushing yorkers as well as get you those important wickets. Punjab Kings would love for him to collaborate with Rabada and bring in great results with the ball.
#5. Jonny Bairstow
The English wicketkeeper, Jonny Bairstow has troubled a lot of bowlers with his stroke play up the order. He was highly successful, dominating at the start of the innings, which is what Punjab Kings would like for Bairstow to do this season. The franchise lacks the foundation at the top and they can resolve this problem in the form of Bairstow. His performance will be of high value to the Kings for a good start in the 16th edition of the IPL.
