IPL 2021 Punjab Kings (PBKS) Full Schedule: Key players, Captain, PBKS hotel in UAE, Players Salary, IPL Records, Punjab Kings Full Squad – All you need to know: One of three teams to have never won an IPL trophy, Punjab Kings will kick off its UAE-leg against Rajasthan Royals in Dubai on September 21. Sitting third from the bottom, Punjab Kings looked rusty in phase 1 of the 14th edition of the tournament, with just three wins in eight encounters.
The KL Rahul side has been an underachiever despite boasting a good mix of youth and experience in the ranks. The batting is mostly dependant upon skipper KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, and ‘Universe Boss Chris Gayle’ whilst Ravi Bishnoi, Chris Jordan, and M Shami take turns with the ball.
Punjab Kings finished third from bottom in the IPL 2020 edition with just six wins in the group round. Interestingly, they are currently placed at the same spot – third from bottom. Can they improve their position? Will the change in venue bring some luck to the KL Rahul-led side?
Till then, let’s have a look at the UAE scheduled of Punjab Kings.

IPL 2021 Phase 2: Three Key players for PBKS:
KL Rahul – The skipper is the batting mainstay of Punjab Kings. KL Rahul has been top-notch for the past three seasons and is the key to Punjab Kings’ maiden title. In 2019, KL Rahul amassed 593 runs at an average of 54.91. In 2020, he went a step further and amassed 670 runs at an average of 55.83 including a ton and five fifties. In 2021, he has scored 331 runs in just 7 innings at an average of 66.20.
Mayank Agarwal – KL Rahul’s partner in crime, Mayank Agarwal has cemented his spot as an opener for the last two seasons for Punjab Kings. In 2020, Mayank Agarwal smashed 424 runs in 11 innings at an average of 38.54 and replaced Chris Gayle from the opening slot. In 2021, Agarwal averages 43.33 with 260 runs in 7 innings.
Chris Gayle – The self-proclaimed Universe Boss, Chris Gayle needs no introduction. From highest individual scored to most sixes in the tournament, the Windies legend has it all. He was off-color in phase 1 of the 14th edition but if he joins the party with KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal in the UAE leg, Punjab Kings might win their maiden IPL trophy.
KL Rahul (C), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Chris Jordan, Darshan Nalkane, Deepak Hooda, Harpreet Brar, Ishan Porel, Mandeep Singh, Murugan Ashwin, Prabhsimran Singh, Ravi Bishnoi, Sarfaraz Khan, Dawid Malan, Jhye Richardson, Shahrukh Khan, Riley Meredith Moises Henriques, Jalaj Saxena, Utkarsh Singh, Fabien Allen, Saurabh Kumar
