PBKS Full Players List in IPL 2022 - Retained, Released, Updated Squad after Mega Auction

PBKS Full Players List in IPL 2022: The Mohali based IPL franchise is still finding its ways to get going in this elite Indian T20 League. Punjab Kings (PBKS) has been an underwhelming franchise for years now and the recent season of the IPL is no exception. In spite of doing well in the auctions, the franchise chokes during the matches and hasn’t found it easy to get going. Ever since the inception of the league, PBKS has reached playoffs just two times.
