Today, we discuss the PBKS Players retained in 2022. In the 2022 Indian Premier League, 10 IPL franchises would compete for the top prize during April-June 2022 in India. This would be the second attempt by the BCCI run IPL governing board to have a 10 Franchise based cricket tournament edition. The tournament, bigger than previous edition, would fetch more international cricketers to appear in an approximately four month run.
As the rules would be, the franchise teams would have to restrict their player retention to a maximum of four while all other players would be selected by these teams and the new franchises during the mega auction. We talk here about the Punjab Kings squad and the PBKS Players retained in 2022.
List of PBKS Players retained in 2022
The Indian Top Order Batsman would be one of the most important members of the Punjab Kings side, as he would also get Indian Cricket team debut based on his IPL and domestic cricket performances. In the previous season (2021), Mayank would score 441 runs at an average of 40 and strike rate of 140 which would include four important half centuries for the franchise. His successful stint with the Punjab based franchise would land him among the PBKS players retained in 2022. His retention would cost Mohali INR 12 Cr. from their Salary purse.
The Indian Left arm Pace bowler would be one of the important performers for the Punjab Kings franchise in IPL 2021, Arshdeep would pick 18 wickets at an average of 19 and strike rate of 13.77 as their key pace bowler as the season would see him pick his first five wicket haul in Indian Premier League. Arshdeep Singh would feature among the PBKS players retained in 2022 before the mega auction at the cost of INR 4 cr. on the Chandigarh based franchise’s salary purse.
These were the PBKS Players retained in 2022 from their squad of 2021. While majority of Indian Premier League players would go through the mega auction to get to their IPL 2022 teams, these were the few cricketers who were picked by their franchises to start ahead of the season.
