Newly appointed Punjab Kings captain Mayank Agarwal hinted at the possibility of Chris Gayle or Dawood Malan playing an opener in the upcoming matches.
Responding to questions from media persons on Sunday night about two foreign recruits who were making more changes in the batting order after KL Rahul’s non-availability, Mayank replied, “This is something we have to speak about.”
After the PBKS suffered a seven-wicket defeat to the Delhi Capitals, Mayank defended the combination of the team selected for the match. He said, “With Delhi batting we felt that we need that firepower to get wickets.” This was the plan. And we return our bowlers for us. “
To a question on how ready he was for the captaincy, Mayaskan said, “I was kept in the loop.” Through the season, we were in meetings there.
“There was enough time for preparation. When you play as a batsman, you don’t think like a captain, you play your role as a player. When you captain and bat, you want to take extra responsibility. “
