Although they are yet to win their maiden title, Punjab will be confident of winning it this time around. They were absolutely superb in the recently concluded mega auction, as they purchased several top-class players. However, they are yet to announce their captain. As they have a few options, it will be exciting to see who the franchise pick as their new skipper. Today, we shall be taking a look at three captaincy options for Punjab
1) Mayank Agarwal:
Mayank Agarwal was Punjab’s first retention ahead of the mega auction. Not only has he been representing the franchise since 2018, but he has also been one of their most consistent performers. As he’s relatively young, he can be a long-term captaincy option for the Punjab-based franchise. Besides, the Karnataka batter has already led the franchise in the past.
2) Shikhar Dhawan:
Shikhar Dhawan seems the ideal option to lead the team. Not only has he been in superb form of late, but he is a veteran and has enough experience of leading teams. The opener had led India on a few occasions as well. As Dhawan has been playing for a really long time, he would be aware of the tactics of a lot of opposition captains. Last but not the least, he was leading Hyderabad in 2014. Although he was far from impressive back then, he has matured with age, and has seemingly got a good cricket brain as well.
