Punjab Kings (formerly Kings XI Punjab) stunned everyone ahead of the auction when they were unable to retain the current IPL’s most valuable player, KL Rahul.
Unfortunately, they could not sign a deal with KL Rahul as Rahul wanted to walk away from the franchise. Along with KL Rahul, Punjab Kings also failed to retain Ravi Bishnoi as both these players were retained by Lucknow Super Giants.
Barring these two, Punjab Kings retained their star death over bowler Arshdeep Singh for Rs 12 crore and another star opener Mayank Agarwal for Rs 4 crore.
He had the most purse when it went to auction, and unlike some of the previous auctions, Punjab Kings did a commendable job in the auction by getting a lot of firepower.
From the first 11 approaches, Punjab Kings have covered all their bases. With Mayank Agarwal recently announced by the franchise, PBKS has roped in star players like Kagiso Rabada, Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Odeon Smith, Shah Rukh Khan, Jonny Bairstow and many more.
