In the Indian Premier League’s existence, the Punjab Kings have only made the playoffs twice (in 2008 and 2014). They haven’t won any championships yet, and they’d want to change that. They won six league matches and finished sixth in the points chart in the 2021 season.

Mayank Agarwal and Arshdeep Singh were retained by the Punjab Kings ahead of the IPL 2022 Auction. The club management made some outstanding purchases in the IPL 2022 Auction, which spanned all aspects of the game. Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal make up the opening duo. Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone, England’s T20 stars, are expected to bat third and fourth, respectively.
