Season after season, Punjab Kings (PBKS) come to the auction, spend money, make big buys, and assemble a star-studded squad but somehow they fail to deliver in the league with their performances. Punjab Kings have already brought in new management ahead of the Indian Premier League 2023.
They sacked skipper Mayank Agarwal and announced veteran batter Shikhar Dhawan as the new skipper of the franchise ahead of IPL 2023. However, the team management needs to do more and will look to trade a few players in the trade window ahead of the mini-auctions for the mega event.
Hence, in this post, we will take a look at the 3 players Punjab Kings might release ahead of IPL 2023.
3. Vaibhav Arora
Punjab Kings signed the Himachal Pradesh pacer at auction for IPL 2022. They went on a bidding war to spend INR 2 crore while securing the services of Vaibhav Arora.
However, the right-handed pacer failed to impress in the limited opportunities he received. Vaibhav Arora scalped only three wickets in 5 matches at an expensive economy rate of 919.
Many franchises out there need a quality Indian pacer who can bowl with the new ball and Vaibhav Arora fits the bill. In all probability, Punjab Kings will receive many inquiries for the pacer and they could trade the pacer ahead of the auction for the pacer for IPL 2022.
