IPL 2022 Auction: Players Retained by Punjab Kings

Only Mayank Agarwal and Arshdeep Singh had been retained by Punjab. They had the biggest purse in the auction (Rs 72 crore). Punjab Kings, one of the teams which are still waiting to win their first IPL trophy, must work more than ever on constructing a great squad in order to realize their ambition. PBKS is planning a major overhaul and will need to fill nearly every segment of the team.

KL Rahul was the captain of the Punjab Kings in the 2021 Indian Premier League. But in IPL 2022, Rahul, who was in outstanding form with the bat, will not be a member of the Punjab franchise.
