The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Sunday, announced the complete fixtures for Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The Preity Zinta co-owned Punjab Kings (PBKS) will start their campaign against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the DY Patil Stadium.
In the mega-auctions, PBKS roped in some biggest stars in world cricket like Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada and Jonny Bairstow. However, the eye-catching buy for PBKS was England all-rounder Liam Livingstone, who became the most expensive overseas buy at IPL 2022 auction.
After the departure of KL Rahul, Punjab retained only two players ahead of the bidding event in the form of Mayank Agarwal and Arshdeep Singh. Mayank will also lead the Mohali-based franchise in the 2022 season of the cash-rich league.
