The Punjab Kings are one team that has yet to crack the TATA IPL code. The TATA IPL 2023 can be their season, as they have the team that is required to get through. With that being said, the Punjab Kings will rely on a few of their players to deliver big performances and win a few crucial games. Over the years, the team has had many match-winners. They have had Virender Sehwag, Glenn Maxwell, Yuvraj Singh, and David Miller. But who are the key players this season? Here is a look: 

Liam Livingstone is a Key Player for the Punjab Kings:

Liam Livingstone is the biggest name that the Punjab Kings have on the roster. He is the most in-demand freelance cricketer. Over the past few years, Livingstone has been a rage in T20 cricket. He is known to take down the opposition single-handedly.  

He is a complete player. Liam Livingstone can bowl off spin and leg spin. If required he can be used as a middle-order batter or floater. He is super quick on the field. In all aspects, he is an elite servant of the game. Liam sets an example for the next generation with his performance. Here is a look at his batting stats: 

Matches 206 
Innings 195 
Runs 5022 
Average 28.8 
Strike Rate 147.6 

Arshdeep Singh is a Key Player for the Punjab Kings: 

The Punjab Kings will rely on their very own prodigy to deliver crucial performances. Arshdeep will be taking care of the death overs for the men in pink. He has had a poor international run in the past with death overs, but he has always been an asset in the IPL. For the past two seasons, he is the bowler to bowl the most yorkers.

He has left behind T Natarajan and Jasprit Bumrah too! Arshdeep brings in the left-handed angle, making it very difficult for the opposition batter to deal with. He will give you two good overs in the powerplay and two economical overs at the death. 

Shahrukh Khan is a Key Player: 

Talk about Indian middle-order batters and Shahrukh Khan’s name pops up. For the past two years, the Punjab Kings have been investing in this domestic giant. He has dominated the domestic circuit for the past two years too but has failed to make a big mark in the IPL. The Tamil Nadu batter is expected to be their designated finisher. He has to bat along with the likes of Jitesh Sharma and Liam Livingstone. So, he will have to be the anchor most of the time as these players are great stroke-makers. Here is a look at the domestic T20 stats of Shahrukh Khan:  

Matches 64 
Innings 52 
Runs 709 
Average 18.65 
Strike Rate 128.9 

His numbers do not do justice to his abilities that he has. He is a big-match player and performs when it matters the most. The Punjab Kings have backed him for two long years and it is about time that they get the fruits of this investment.
