Punjab Kings Batting Coach: Before the start of the 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Punjab Kings have made a big change in their team. Punjab has made Wasim Jaffer its batting coach again. Jaffer left the post of Punjab’s batting coach before the auction of last season. However, now he is back in the team again.
Jaffer was made his batting coach by Punjab for the first time in 2019 and Jaffer played his role well for three seasons. After this, Jaffer left his post before the auction of 2022 season and he was not associated with IPL in 2022 season. Jaffer has also worked with the Bangladesh Cricket Board and has been coaching young Bangladeshi players.
Punjab has released many players before the next season, including former team captain Mayank Agarwal. When the franchise announced Shikhar Dhawan as its new captain, then only Mayank’s release was almost decided. Odion Smith, the big buy last season, has also been released.
Punjab will have a lot of money in the auction
Punjab will have Rs 32.2 crore going into the auction and with the help of this they will try to complete their team by bringing good players. More money than Punjab will remain only with Sunrisers Hyderabad. Punjab has retained foreign stars like Kagiso Rabada, Liam Livingstone and Jonny Bairstow in their squad.
