Indian T20 League: Punjab Team

Captained by a new skipper Mayank Agarwal, Punjab have the dubious distinction of being one of the only three Indian T20 League franchises not to win the trophy. But while Bangalore can point to three losses in the final and Delhi to five play-off appearances, all Punjab have to show for 13 seasons of toil is two good years. In the inaugural season in 2008, they reached the semi-finals, and in 2014, they lost to Kolkata in a thrilling final.

Punjab coach Anil Kumble is the head coach, Jonty Rhodes, the South African legend, is the assistant coach. while Damien Wright guides the bowlers.

You have to go back to 2017 for the last time Punjab finished as high as 5th in the points table. Based on the talent available to Kumble, it’s hard to see how they can better that. Here we look at the team, its history and performances down the years in the Indian T20 League.

Team Punjab Origin

The Punjab team was founded in 2008, though it was rebranded in time for the 2021 season. Though they’ve played the majority of their home games at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali, they’ve also used venues as far apart as Dharamsala and Indore for home matches.

Team Punjab Owners: Indian T20 League

The Punjab franchise is owned by a consortium that includes Dabur, the Wadia Group, Preity Zinta and the Apeejay Surrendra Group. According to the last released figures, only the Rajasthan team has a lower brand value in the Indian T20 League.

Mayank Agarwal: Punjab Team Captain

Since Mayank joined the Punjab team in 2018, he has been scoring consistently in the last 3 seasons. He usually opens the innings and has played a number of fiery innings up the order, setting up the tone for the rest of their innings. He is also an excellent fielder and can save runs that can be crucial at the end of the innings.
