Punjab Kings have so far been a disappointment over the years in the IPL and they have not been able to achieve the cut, although they have tried new methods which was also evident in IPL 2021. Aside from the IPL edition of 2014, where they reached the finals, they seemed far to dominate and had to change their name in hopes of changing fate for them.
One of the positive aspects for the Punjab Kings in IPL 2021 was the role played by the spinners and the two leggies Murugan Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi has definitely improved massively. Bishnoi picked up the XI after missing the first few games and he immediately impressed the bowling. Here is the Punjab Kings (PBKS) team, schedule, updated time and place.
