IPL 2023 Auction: 3 Young Indian Players That Punjab Kings (PBKS) Might Bid For. After the IPL 2022 mega auction, the cricket legends weighted Punjab Kings among the probable teams to reach the playoff and even win the IPL trophy. The reason was that they had a very good team comprising a bunch of talented utility players who could single-handedly win matches for the franchise.

But, after the IPL league stage finished, the Mayank Agarwal-led team found themselves packing their bags with just 7 wins from 14 matches, finishing the IPL 2022 points table in the 6th position. There will be a lot of brainstorming from now leading up to the 16th edition of the IPL. The likes of Shahrukh Khan, Benny Howell, Sandeep Sharma, Vaibhav Arora, and even IPL 2022 skipper Mayank Agarwal may be released by the franchise.

India’s U19 World Cup-winning captain was brought on board by the Delhi Capitals during the TATA IPL 2022 auction. The youngster made his mark in the U19 World Cup, creaming a sensational ton in the semifinal against Australia U19 and following the World Cup triumph, continued his good form into his maiden First Class season, creaming two hundreds in his first Ranji Trophy game and followed it up with a double ton in his third First Class match.
