Shikhar Dhawan has the potential to lead Punjab Kings to victory. Only Mayank Agarwal and the uncapped Arshdeep Singh remained with Punjab Kings before the IPL 2022 mega auction.

Nicholas Pooran threw a pizza party after winning a large sum in the IPL, but then received a rude awakening.
After being sold for Rs 10.75 crore in the IPL auction, West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran threw a pizza party for his teammates inside the bio bubble. For 15 pizzas, he had to pay Rs 15,000 in cash. Nicholas Pooran had requested a spare charger for his smartphone, which was sanitised before being sent to him, and when he put it on the power board to charge his phone, it shocked him because it had absorbed moisture during the sanitization process. And it was because of this that he was electrocuted by the charger. It was not, however, a shock that necessitated medical attention.

Tripathi was a member of the Kolkata Knight Riders last season. ‘If the management asks me to bat at the top of the batting order or in the middle order, I am prepared to do both,’ Tripathi said.

We wanted to, and I’m glad we were able to do so.
