Performance of Punjab Kings in IPL 2023

IPL 2023 was a disastrous season for Punjab Kings as they finished 8th in the points table. Punjab Kings started its IPL 2023 campaign with a 4-wicket win against Rajasthan Royals and won 6 out of 14 games during the season. Punjab Kings lost its last game of the IPL 2023 by four wickets against Rajasthan Royals. Last year, was their worst performance in years.

Punjab Kings Players' Performance Analysis

Last year, in an IPL auction, Punjab Kings gave 18.5 crore INR to English player Sam Curran. In 14 matches, Sam Curran scored 276 runs and took ten wickets in IPL 2023.

Economy rate of Sam Curran was 10.22 per over in IPL 2023, which was very high for a player like Sam Curran. Captain Shikhar Dhawan was the highest run scorer for Punjab Kings in IPL 2023. He scored 373 runs in IPL 2023 for Punjab Kings. Prabhsimran Singh was the 2nd highest run-getter with 358 runs. The other important player for the team was Jitesh Sharma, the 3rd highest run scorer with 309 runs.

Arshdeep Singh will play as the main bowler of the Punjab Kings in IPL 2024. He was the leading wicket-taker of Punjab Kings last season. Arshdeep Singh got 17 wickets in IPL 2023 for Punjab Kings. Arshdeep will have experienced Kagiso Rabada with him, who had an ordinary season last year. The Inclusion of Chris Woakes and the retention of Nathan Ellis will surely benefit the fast bowling unit. The spin bowling will again depend upon the all-rounders Livingstone and Raza. Chahar and Brar have ordinary performances in IPL 2023.

Sikandar Raza is a Zimbabwean allrounder who played IPL 2023 for Punjab Kings. Sikandar Raza played a match-winning knock against defending champions Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2023. Liam Livingstone will hold a prominent position in the middle order. The retention of Jonny Bairstow has been one of the best decisions. He has experience and good form and hit the Indian shores with a bang this year, as he was not available to play last year. Harshal Patel, who can become a key player, is added to the squad this year. Punjab paid a heavy price to take him to the squad.

Key Players for Punjab Kings in IPL 2024

The Captain of Punjab Kings, Shikhar Dhawan, must perform like in IPL 2023 to get the best result for Punjab Kings in IPL 2024. He scored a match-winning century in IPL 2023 against Sunrises Hyderabad. He will have Prabhsimran Singh, who did well in domestic cricket. Jitesh Sharma, Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow, and Sikandar Raza will be the key players in the middle order. The bowling line has the top performer in Arshdeep Singh. But Sam Curran and Kagiso Rabada must stand up as the champion bowlers they are known for. If these players fail to perform well, the team will again suffer.

Expectations on Punjab Kings in IPL 2024

Punjab Kings has always been one of the strongest sides of IPL on paper. But in reality, they always failed to secure a place in the top 4 of IPL at the end of the Group Stage. This year, the Punjab Kings tried to select top players for the T20 format. Looking at the squad of Punjab Kings for IPL 2024, Punjab Kings can qualify for the top 4 if it gets the right combination in the starting phase of IPL 2024.


Punjab Kings always give huge amounts of money to their players in the IPL auction. But most of these players did not perform well for Punjab Kings in the IPL. The team retained their core players from the last season, although they could not produce results. However, retaining many players is a good way to stay engaged. Let's see if Punjab Kings will get a place in the top 4 of the IPL 2024. Catch all the matches on TVSports.in.
