Shikhar Dhawan has been named the captain of the Punjab Kings in the upcoming IPL 2023. The decision was taken at the franchise’s board meeting on Wednesday.

The move was on expected lines after the 31-year-old from Karnataka failed to take the team to the IPL playoffs earlier this year.

Agarwal was made captain for the 2022 edition after KL Rahul decided to move to Lucknow Super Giants. Besides the

team’s inconsistent run, Agarwal’s form also dipped as he managed 196 runs at an average of 16.33.

The franchise had thought about making Dhawan the skipper last year as well but decided to go ahead with Agarwal.

“The board has decided to make Dhawan captain. He has all the experience, both as player and captain in the IPL and also did well for the team in his first season last year,” a source told PTI.
