Punjab Team in Indian T20 League

Punjab is one of the three teams that have played all seasons of Indian T20 Premier League but still have not managed to win a single title. One of the major problems with the team has been the constant changing and chopping in the squad, which has led to the team not really having a strong and consistent core. They have gone for a slightly better approach this time around by retaining the majority of last year’s performers and then getting some big buys in the auction pool to bolster the team. They will be hoping to at least reach the playoffs in Indian T20 Premier League 2020.

Last Year’s Performance

Punjab has always been slow starters but it was not the case last year. They performed quite well with both KL Rahul and Chris Gayle among the runs. However, a weak bowling department meant that they could not finish the games the way they wanted. Punjab were sitting pretty well in the top half of the table but 5 continuous losses in the business end of the league stage meant that they could not qualify for the playoffs. They finished 6th on the table.

What can we Expect from Punjab in the 2020 season

The team let go of their captain from the previous season R Ashwin, trading him with Delhi. India opener KL Rahul has been handed the reigns of the team and will be hoping to bring about a change in the fortunes of the team with new head coach Anil Kumble. With players like KL Rahul, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Mohammed Shami and Nicholas Pooran in fine form, they have a set of first-team players whom they can rely on. Moreover, with impact signings in the shape of Sheldon Cottrell, Glen Maxwell, Chris Jordan, and James Neesham, they have built one of the most exciting squads. With such a fine line-up, the least we can expect from them is to qualify for the playoffs and probably win the title that has eluded them all these years.

Current Squad of Punjab

The list of players in Punjab are:

  • Chris Gayle
  • Mayank Agarwal

Latest Acquisitions

Punjab went all out in the auctions as they had the biggest purse. Glen Maxwell and Sheldon Cottrell were their big-money signings and should go directly into the playing XI. Apart from them, Chris Jordan and Ravi Bishnoi were the other multiple-crore signings. However, one of their smartest buys was that of James Neesham for just Rs. 50 Lakhs, given his amazing current run of form. Deepak Hooda and Prabhsimran Singh were their other two major Indian signings.

Punjab does look strong on paper and if they play with the right combinations and can manage some consistent performances this time around, they should be in contention for not just a playoff place but also for winning the title.
