PBKS IPL 2023 Schedule: Punjab Kings will begin their quest for their maiden title in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League against Kolkata Knight Riders in Mohali on April 1.
Led by Mayank Agarwal, PBKS finished sixth with 14 points from 14 games. However, the franchise released Agarwal ahead of the mini auction last December and appointed Dhawan as the captain for IPL 2023.
Punjab Kings are placed in Group B alongside Gujarat Titans, Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore. PBKS’s best finish in the IPL came in the 2014 season when they lost to KKR in the final.
Meanwhile, PBKS made headlines during the mini auction, when they broke the bank to rope in English all-rounder Sam Curran for a whopping Rs 18.50 crores. He also broke Chris Morris’ record (Rs 16.25 crore) to become the most expensive buy at an IPL auction.
