Sunil Gavaskar Does Not Think That This Team Will Win IPL 2022

The 15th IPL is starting on March 26. So far Punjab Kings have never won an IPL. They will go into that fight this year holding the hand of Mayank Agrawal. But Sunil Gavaskar is not optimistic about them.

The Punjab team has cricketers like Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Johnny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Johnny Bairstow. In an interview, the former India captain said, “Punjab has not won the trophy yet. I don’t think there are any cricketers in their team this time who can make a difference. But it can also be good for them. If there is no expectation, the pressure is less.”

Apart from Punjab, Delhi and Bangalore are yet to win a trophy among the old eight teams. Gavaskar feels that Punjab will not be able to win the trophy this year. “Cricketers can play much better if there is less pressure,” he said. “For that, it seems, Punjab could surprise. But will they win the trophy? I don’t think so. It’s a T20 competition where you have to win all the time.”

This time, Punjab has picked an experienced cricketer like Shikhar Dhawan in the auction. Cricketers like Johnny Bairstow, Kagiso Rabada, Liam Livingstone are also in the team. The Punjab Kings will be led by Mayank Agrawal as the captain of the team. Mayank is one of the two cricketers held by Punjab before the IPL mega auction. So the franchise relied on him.

After being appointed as the captain, Mayank also shared an audio message on Twitter. In it, he said that he was quite happy and it was an honour for him to become the captain of Punjab Kings. Mayank got into Punjab Kings in 2016, the management bought him for Rs 1 crore in the auction. Previously, one of the team owners of Punjab Kings, Mohit Barman had hinted that Mayank could be the new captain.

In an interview, Mayank also said that he is ready to take over the captaincy. “If I’m made captain, I’m ready for that,” he said. “I will do whatever I have to do as a cricketer. I am ready to give whatever the team wants.”

Punjab Kings will play their first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The two teams will face each other on March 26.
