The Punjab Kings (PBKS) haven’t really been one of the greatest IPL teams of all time. There have been several seasons where they have left their fans dissatisfied. It gets sad when one realises that they are yet to win an IPL title.
In the 14th edition of the league, they finished 6th on the points table. Despite showing glimpses of their potential, the Kings were never really consistent. However, they have a chance to rectify their mistakes in the upcoming season.
As the upcoming auction is going to be a mega auction, the franchise has the opportunity to pick a better side. They can retain a few of their key players and build a new team around them. However, which are those players who PBKS will choose to retain?
In the article, we shall be taking a look at 4 players PBKS might retain ahead of mega auction:
1) KL Rahul
KL Rahul has been one of the greatest players in the Indian T20 league for the last few seasons. His consistently is second to none. The opener has made it a habit to win matches on his own.
It gets unreal when one takes a look at his performance for Punjab. He has scored the most number of runs for the franchise in every season he has played for them so far.
Add to that his keeping and captaincy skills which make him irreplaceable in any side. Thus, retaining him is an absolute no-brainer. PBKS can form a new side around him and he can continue to be their captain.
