Dhawan was appointed as the PBKS captain after the IPL 2023 Auction, where they spent a whopping INR 20 crore. The team’s bid to buy Sam Curran for INR 18.5 crore made the English youngster, the most expensive player to be sold at the auction. While Sikandar Raza was among the top players to be bought by the team, they retained a good chuck of players that they bought during the IPL 2022 mega-auction.
Meanwhile, Punjab Kings will open their IPL 2023 campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Mohali on April 1. A total of 70 league games are scheduled to be played in the group stage of the tournament. The marquee T20 league kicks off with the exciting Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings match on March 31.
