Punjab Kings finished at the sixth position in the IPL 2022



Punjab Kings formed a star-studded squad in the IPL 2022 and adopted an ultra-aggressive batting approach but all the tactics were thrown out of the window as they finished sixth on the points table.

Punjab Kings believed in an aggressive brand of cricket in the last season but things didn’t work out as they would have wanted as they finished in sixth place in the points table. Yet, they retained all their prolific hitters, including Liam Livingstone, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Jonny Bairstow, who were at the center stage last season. 

Having released their last season’s skipper Mayank Agarwal, the Kings, among the swashbuckling hitters, might bring someone in the middle order who can hold the innings from one end. As usual, they have the budget as well, boasting of INR 32.2 Crores.

The Kings brought back Sam Curran at ₹18.5 crores, making him the most-expensive player in the tournament. Then they signed Sikandar Raza at ₹50 lakh to strengthen their all-round department. However, they did not manage to acquire any other notable names, and in the end, were left with ₹12.2 Crores.
