Here Are The 3 Players Punjab Kings can Retain Ahead of IPL 2025 Mega Auction

Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings (PBKS) faced a disappointing season in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, finishing in ninth position on the points table. As they gear up for the Mega IPL Auction in 2025, PBKS has an opportunity to rebuild their squad and strategize for success. Let’s take a closer look at three players who may be retained by the franchise:

1. Shashank Singh

Shashank Singh emerged as an unexpected gem for Punjab Kings in the IPL 2024 auction. Initially acquired due to a mix-up with another player named Shashank, Singh proved his mettle on the field. With a total of 352 runs at an impressive average of 50.29, he became PBKS’s standout performer. Retaining Shashank Singh would provide stability to the middle order and bolster their batting lineup.

2. Sam Curran

Sam Curran stepped up when PBKS faced adversity during the tournament. With captain Shikhar Dhawan missing out due to injury, Curran took charge and led from the front. His all-round abilities were on display as he picked up 16 wickets in 13 matches. Retaining Curran would not only strengthen the bowling attack but also provide leadership options in case of unforeseen circumstances.

3. Harshal Patel

Despite PBKS not making it to the playoffs, Harshal Patel shone brightly throughout the season. The highest wicket-taker of IPL 2024, Patel clinched the coveted ‘Purple Cap.’ His ability to deliver under pressure and consistently trouble batsmen makes him a valuable asset. Retaining Harshal Patel would ensure a potent bowling attack for PBKS in the upcoming seasons.

As the Mega Auction approaches, PBKS will need to make strategic decisions to build a competitive team. These three players have the potential to make a significant impact, and their retention could be crucial for the franchise’s success.
