We are done and dusted with the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega auction and all the 10 teams have been finalized. It was indeed an action-packed event as many players went big under the hammer and bagged massive contracts. At the same time, several notable names went unsold despite two new teams – Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans – being in action.

Meanwhile, Punjab Kings were one of the franchises to watch out for as they stepped into the auction with the biggest purse amount of INR 72 crore. They had utilized only two of their four available retention cards to get Mayank Agarwal and Arshdeep Singh back on board. However, they wasted no time whatsoever in the bidding event and picked two of the 10 marquee players. Follow IPL Auction Day 2 Live Updates Here.

Punjab Kings picked two players from the marquee list

Former Delhi Capitals duo Kagiso Rabada (INR 9.25 crore) and Shikhar Dhawan (INR 8.25 crore) were the marquee inclusions in the Punjab side and many are even viewing the latter as the captain. They even went onto acquire the services of England wicketkeeper-batter Jonny Bairstow (INR 6.75 crore). The dasher can bat anywhere in the order and will also take the gloves.

Notably, Punjab Kings were keen to build a strong Indian contingent as they went hard after some local players. They picked leg-spinner Rahul Chahar for INR 5.25 crore, which is being considered a steal. The Mohali-based franchise also tried retaining their core – reacquiring the services of Prabhsimran Singh, Arshdeep Singh, Ishan Porel and Shahrukh Khan.

Among these names, Shahrukh, who has been in hot form lately, was the most expensive as PBKS had to spend INR 9 crore to get his services back. PBKS also invested big on all-rounders as they bought Liam Livingstone and Odean Smith for INR 11.5 crore and INR 6 crore respectively. Overall, the squad looks balanced with prominent players being available in all three departments. Hence, it will be interesting to see if the Kings can lift the elusive title this time around.
