PBKS Key Players in IPL 2023

The team has a strong core of domestic bowlers including Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Chahar. However, they will also need to strengthen their batting and bowling in the coming IPL 2023 season.

The team will arrive at the 2023 auction with a budget of INR 32.2 crore and can buy up to nine players, at most three overseas. With Mayank Agarwal and Jonny Bairstow out of the squad, PBKS need replacements and an all-rounder to add depth to the middle order.

With a new captain in Shikhar Dhawan, the side has a bright future ahead of them. However, they need to get going from the onset and banish dependency on star players.
