Punjab Kings appointed Shikhar Dhawan as captain for the next season, Mayank Agarwal discharged

Shikhar Dhawan: Before the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, the team of Punjab Kings has made a big change. Shikhar Dhawan has been given the captaincy of the team, replacing Mayank Agarwal. Dhawan is a veteran player and has also been seen captaining the Indian team in recent times. Dhawan has been made the captain of the Indian team for the ODI series to be held on New Zealand tour. Earlier, he captained India in the three-match ODI series against South Africa. Dhawan has more captaincy experience than Mayank and can be a good option for Punjab.

Last season itself, Punjab had made a mood to make Dhawan the captain, but the decision was changed at the last minute and Mayank was made the captain. The performance of the team under Mayank’s captaincy was not good last season and he was out of the group stage itself. Now under the captaincy of Dhawan, Punjab will try to do well in the new season.

Dhawan’s batting was excellent last season

In batting too, Dhawan proved to be better than Mayank last season. Dhawan scored 460 runs in 14 matches at an average of 38.33 and was the highest run-scorer for Punjab. Dhawan had three half-centuries off the bat and his highest score was an unbeaten 88. Mayank had scored only 196 runs in 12 innings at a poor average of 16.33. There was only one half-century from Mayank’s bat.
