Commenting on his new role, Trevor Bayliss, Head Coach Punjab Kings said:
“ I’m honoured to be given the Head Coach’s role with the Punjab Kings. A foundation franchise with an appetite for success. I look forward to working with a talented squad of players determined to compete for silverware.”
Punjab, a team that has struggled to consistently perform at its best since the IPL’s start in 2008. And has finished sixth each of the previous four seasons.
They frequently blow hot and cold, which contributes to their demise. Bayliss will undoubtedly want to improve on that one area.
They eliminated early from the most recent IPL. Because they couldn’t pull together two victories in a row during the league stage.
The management must also make a crucial decision on captaincy. Last year, Mayank Agarwal replaced KL Rahul as captain, but his batting performance fell short of expectations.
As a result of the owners’ and management’s confidence in Agarwal. He may given one additional year to lead the side.
He and Arshdeep Singh, the only two players Punjab had retained ahead of the 2022 IPL.
