Power of Punjab Kings
After IPL Mega Auction 2022, the audience including many cricket experts believe that Punjab Kings have bought good players to a great extent this time in the auction. He has bid wisely this time. The Punjab Kings have given the highest attention this time (IPL Mega Auction 2022) to their all-rounders. Punjab has bid on fearless all-rounders.
In the IPL Mega Auction, Punjab Kings have roped in long-sixer Liam Livingstone as well as West Indies all-rounder Odine Smith. Apart from this, Punjab has also included Indian capped veteran Rishi Dhawan in the team. Another English all-rounder named Benny Howell has also been bought by Punjab.
So all-rounders are the biggest strength of Punjab Kings. Especially, Liam Livingstone and Odin Smith can turn the entire course of the match on their own. In such a situation, all-rounders are going to play a very important role for Punjab in the coming IPL season. Punjab has shown a lot of confidence in the all-rounder players in the mega auction (IPL Mega Auction 2022).
Punjab Kings Weakness
Punjab Kings left some space vacant in their squad even after spending several crores in the auction (IPL Mega Auction 2022). Punjab has a lot of top order batsmen in batting, but Kings do not have any good middle order Indian batsman except Shahrukh Khan who can handle the game. Someday if players like Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone get out early, then Punjab may have to face a lot of problems.
On the other hand, if we talk about their spin department, then that is the biggest weakness of Punjab. This franchise did not include any spinner in its team who has a lot of IPL experience. Talking about the spinners of Punjab Kings, they have only Harpreet Brar and Rahul Chahar. Rahul Chahar is a very good bowler, but he lacks experience right now. At the same time, Harpreet Brar is also an inexperienced player. Apart from this, if one day one of these players is going to have a bad IPL, then Punjab will not have any third name spinner bowler. This is a matter of biggest concern at the moment.
