Ahead of the eagerly anticipated 2024 edition of the IPL, the Punjab Kings have unveiled their complete list of released players. Under the seasoned leadership of Shikhar Dhawan, the franchise is gearing up for a fresh start, determined to overcome the challenges of the previous season. Alongside Dhawan, key players such as Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, and others are set to elevate their performance in the upcoming campaign.
In preparation for IPL 2024, the Punjab Kings have made strategic decisions to part ways with Indian talents Shahrukh Khan, Raj Angad Bawa, Baltej Dhanda, and Mohit Rathee, along with overseas player Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Notably, the release of Shahrukh Khan, the proficient right-hand batsman from Tamil Nadu, has emerged as the most surprising move from the Punjab camp. With his established batting prowess, Khan becomes an attractive prospect for multiple teams in the IPL auction.
Skipper Shikhar Dhawan will continue to lead the side as the co-owned franchise, featuring prominent names such as Preity Zinta, Ness Wadia, Karan Paul, and Rohit Burman, sets out on a quest for their maiden IPL title. Despite active participation in the IPL since its inception in 2008, Punjab Kings are yet to secure the coveted championship.
