Punjab Kings, the Mohali-based franchise, will look for an upward swing in their fortunes in IPL 2022: here’s the full squad list, team news, replacements, injury updates, and coaching staff for PBKS ahead of season 15 of the Indian Premier League.

Punjab Kings, earlier known as Kings XI Punjab, made their IPL debut in 2008, but have never won the league. Their best result was a runners-up finish in 2014.

Prior to the IPL 2022 auction, Punjab Kings had retained only Arshdeep Singh and Mayank Agarwal. Punjab Kings built their squad around some renowned names of the IPL.


On the first day, they added Shikhar Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada and Jonny Bairstow to their side. On the second day of the mega-auction, they spent Rs. 11.5 crores on Liam Livingstone.
