IPL 2022, PBKS vs GT: Former cricketer Wasim Jaffer published a fantastic meme depicting the selection challenges being faced by Punjab Kings about overseas players in IPL 2022.
It’s the IPL in 2022, and Punjab Kings’ foreign players have done well so far.
Mayank Agarwal’s team has a lot of good foreign players
In this year’s Indian Premier League, the Punjab Kings (PBKS) seem to have a lot of choices to make when it comes to who they pick to play for them (IPL). It’s a good thing that Mayank Agarwal’s team has a lot of good foreign players. So far, he’s been a good leader for all of his players. With two wins out of three games played, PBKS looks good, but picking four players from outside the United States isn’t easy. Rabada is a world-class bowler, and he makes a strong case to be chosen. Rajapaksa, who is from Sri Lanka, has been in great form with the bat and helps to give the team a big boost at the top of their order.
It will be hard to ignore Liam Livingstone and Odean Smith, who are both English. There is also the possibility that Mayank could have a long day at work because Jonny Bairstow can be chosen. He did a great job of expressing this pain. Wasim Jaffer, who played cricket in the 1980s and 1990s, shared a meme about the same.
The caption of the video said:

It looks like PBKS are in good shape
It’s a lot of work for PBKS to fit Bairstow and Rabada, Livingstone, Rajapaksa, and Odean Smith into the team.
It looks like PBKS are in good shape. They won their first game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by five wickets. Then, they went off the rails and lost the next game to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by six wickets.
Mumbai Indians play against Gujarat Titans on Friday
In the next game, PBKS won by 54 runs against the reigning champions, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), and then got back to winning ways.
Mayank has been good at leading the team, but he hasn’t been as good with the bat. This will be his first game as an opening batter in IPL 2022. And he hasn’t done very well so far. He’ll try to change that when the Mumbai Indians play against Gujarat Titans on Friday at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
