Twitter Reacts To Reports Claiming Shikhar Dhawan Will Be Punjab Kings Captain

The Punjab Kings were very impressive at the IPL 2022 Auction. They retained only two players – Arshdeep Singh and Mayank Agarwal – before the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. While many fans thought that the team would name Mayank as the captain, reports have surfaced claiming that the team’s new signing Shikhar Dhawan may lead.

Dhawan, who captained the Indian cricket team in the away series against the Sri Lankan cricket team last year, is one of the most successful players in IPL history. He is one of the few batters with more than 5,000 runs in the league’s history.

The left-handed batter also has captaincy experience under his belt having led the Sunrisers Hyderabad team previously. Here’s what a source close to Punjab Kings informed InsideSport:


“Team is very elated to have Shikhar Dhawan in Squad. Dhawan has a mature head and will be entrusted to lead Punjab in IPL. Coach, promoters all are in favour of Dhawan As Captain of Punjab Kings.”

Punjab Kings entered the IPL 2022 Mega Auction with the biggest purse. They signed 23 players at the mega auction and stacked up their squad. Now, they have 18 Indian players and seven foreign players in the IPL 2022 squad.

The Punjab Kings fans are delighted with the squad that their team owners have formed. However, the captaincy is also very important because even if a team is full of match-winners, poor captaincy can lead to the team’s defeats.


Also, if the captain is excellent, then even an average team can perform beyond expectations. Thus, an experienced player like Shikhar Dhawan can be a good choice for the Punjab Kings captaincy role.
