IPL, Punjab Kings: A big news came out before the Indian Premier League 2023. Punjab Kings snatched the captaincy responsibility from star opener Mayank Agarwal and handed it over to Shikhar Dhawan. The special thing is that Mayank Agarwal was made the new captain in the last season after KL Rahul, but he was able to take up this responsibility in the same year, in which his performance as captain was disappointing, as well as with the bat. Couldn’t do anything amazing. However, with Dhawan becoming the captain, this team is hopeful that they will finally end their maiden title drought.

Punjab Kings co-owner Ness Wadia is hopeful that skipper Shikhar Dhawan and coach Trevor Bayliss will end their long wait for the IPL title. Since the IPL’s inception in 2008, Punjab reached the final in 2014 but could not even make it to the playoffs in the last four seasons. Dhawan was then named captain in place of Mayank Agarwal, while coach Bayliss, who led England to the 2019 ODI World Cup and KKR to two IPL titles, was replaced by Anil Kumble.

At least the eyes will be on the semi-finals

Wadia said, “We want them to take us to the last four and then win the title. We should benefit from the immense experience of Dhawan and Trevor.” Ahead of the November 15 deadline to retain players, Wadia said, “We will try to keep the core team intact. We have to make sure the analysis is accurate. Work is going on on this.”
