The Punjab Kings (PBKS) stepped into their new journey in the IPL 2021. The franchise previously appeared as the King’s XI Punjab (KXIP). On Monday, PBKS’s fixture was fixed against the Rajasthan Royals, in their first match of the 2021 edition. Backing their form up from the former season, the Punjab Kings jabbed a total target of 222 in 20 overs.
