Shikhar Dhawan will return to the field after 111 days
The most expensive player in the squad of Punjab Kings
New Delhi: IPL 2023 (IPL 2023) has started. In the first match, Gujarat defeated Chennai by 5 wickets. The second match of IPL will be played between Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders in Mohali. Indian team’s veteran batsman Shikhar Dhawan will return to the field after about 3 months. He has been running out of Team India for the last few months. In the first match, he would like to start with a win. His team also includes the most expensive player of IPL. We will also give you information related to the possible playing eleven in this news.
Shikhar Dhawan will have a big responsibility on his shoulder this time. He has been appointed as their captain by Punjab Kings. He has replaced Mayank Agarwal. Last year, Dhawan scored 460 runs in 14 matches, while Mayank was able to score only 196 runs in the entire tournament. This is the reason why the franchise decided to make Dhawan the captain. Mayank Agarwal will now be seen playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Dhawan has the most expensive player in IPL. In the auction, Punjab bought Sam Karen for Rs 18.50 crore. It will be interesting to see how he performs.

When Shikhar Dhawan will take the field, his eyes will be on making a place in the Indian team by performing well in the IPL. He was going through bad form for some time, due to which he was dropped from the Indian team. Dhawan’s record in IPL has been excellent. He has scored more than 6000 runs in 206 matches. He has two centuries in IPL. His highest score is 106.

The Punjab team led by Dhawan has played 30 matches against Kolkata so far, in which Kolkata has won 20 while Punjab has won only 10. For Punjab, this figure is a bit disappointing. However, the good thing for the Kings is that their first match against the Knight Riders will be played at their home ground Mohali.
Like this can be the possible playing XI of Punjab Kings:
Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Prabhsimran Singh, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Sikandar Raza, Sam Karan, Jitesh Sharma (Wicketkeeper), Shah Rukh Khan, Harpreet Brar, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh and Nathan Ellis.
