3. Prabhsimran Singh

Punjab’s handling of Prabhsimran sent clear signs that the wicket-keeper is not a part of future plans. Instead, the team management will seek to go after an experienced Indian batter who could anchor an innings for the side in the middle overs.

2. Sandeep Sharma

PBKS have had the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh as frontline pacers and the inclusion of Rishi Dhawan as the third pacer provided a balance to the side. Hence, taking all the above factors into consideration, he might be released by the team ahead of next year’s auction.

1. Odean Smith

With his inconsistency in both the departments, we may see Smith being released by the franchise ahead of IPL 2023.
