Led by the Captain from the front, the Kings boast a very balanced batting setup. With the likes of Rajapaksa, Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma, and others, Kings not only have good anchors, but they have a few power hitters, too. Punjab Kings will surely miss the man-in-form, Jonny Bairstow, who will be out for the 2023 season due to an injury.
