IPL 2021 Punjab Kings Full Schedule: Not 1 title in 13 seasons, will the drought end? Know the full schedule of the team
One of the most destructive teams of the IPL. One of the biggest names in T20 cricket. An army of aggressive batsmen from the opening to the lower order. But for the last 13 years, the continuation of craving for a title has continued. This team is the Kings XI Punjab, which has now been renamed Punjab Kings, by presenting the claim for the title once again under the captaincy of KL Rahul. The Punjab team, which had once taken the services of veterans like Virender Sehwag, currently has the presence of Chris Gayle as well. It has to be seen whether an army of his batsmen can get him to see the title this time.
The performance of Punjab Kings was mixed in the previous season. The team lost many close matches, due to which it had to suffer by staying out of the playoffs. Apart from KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal is also in the team and Nicholas Pooran too. Although Chris Gayle was able to play only 7 matches last season due to being unfit, but this time he will be expected to perform well in the entire tournament. Punjab had released Gleen Maxwell in this auction. Maxwell scored just 108 runs in 13 matches for Punjab last season.
Five matches of Punjab in Bangalore
Punjab Kings have to start their campaign this year against Rajasthan Royals. This match will be played on 12 April in Mumbai. Then on April 16 in Mumbai itself, the team will take on Chennai Super Kings, led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, in their second match. The third match will be played against the Delhi Capitals on 18 April in Mumbai itself. Apart from these three matches, Punjab has to play five matches in Bangalore, four in Ahmedabad and two in Chennai.
