The Punjab Kings cannot be blamed for one thing in the IPL and that is for trying. They have tried everything possible to secure that maiden title but have often fallen way short of the target. Punjab had a new captain in IPL 2022. They appointed Mayank Agarwal as their captain who was one of the only two players they had retained.

But after another season of what-ifs, Punjab wasted little time in chopping and changing again. They not just dropped Agarwal but released him from the squad. Punjab has a new captain and coach at the helm for this season.

We look at the Punjab Kings Strengths and Weakness in IPL 2023:

Punjab Kings (PBKS) Strengths:

#1 Explosive batting lineup:

The Punjab Kings have arguably one of the most explosive batting lineups in the tournament. They had made a conscious decision in the last mega auction to play in a certain manner. The Kings assembled the who’s who of power hitters to go all out with the bat. Their blazing approach was certainly refreshing to see from a side that had been defensive largely in the past few seasons.

#2 The signings of a few superstars:

There was no dearth of stars in the setup but the Kings went one notch higher this season. They broke the record for buying the most expensive player in the auction ever. Kings bought Sam Curran for an earth-shattering sum of INR 18.50 crores. Curran was the player of the 2022 World Cup and the Kings were keen to rope him back into the setup. Kings also bought the services of Sikandar Raza. The star allrounder from Zimbabwe will bolster their lower middle order. 

#3 Players who are in top form:

There were a couple of players who played out of position for Punjab last season. The team will do well to not repeat the same mistake this season. Punjab will be hoping that their star players continue their rich vein of form even in the IPL. 

Jonny Bairstow who is expected to open alongside Shikhar Dhawan was in red-hot form before injury ruled him out of action. He is expected to turbocharge the Kings’ innings. Kagiso Rabada with the ball on the other hand has been on a roll. The side will expect nothing but the same hostility from him when he charges into bowl.

Punjab Kings Weakness:-

#1 Lack of cohesion:

It was quite evident from the mega auction that the Kings wanted a side that fires on all cylinders. Their approach did pay off but they missed out on a playoff spot mainly owing to the lack of cohesion. Punjab never seemed to have a plan B that would have helped them in winning close games and potentially make it to the playoffs. The side will be wary of putting all their eggs in just one basket this time around.

#2 A sub-par bowling lineup

There is a clear distinction between the quality of their batting and bowling. Punjab’s bowling wears a very thin look even on paper. They do have the likes of Rabada, Curran, and Arshdeep Singh but there is very little beyond them. Rahul Chahar is the side’s main spinner who constantly keeps fighting the battle for consistency. It will be a tall order for the side to fix their bowling menace.
