IPL 2024: Complete list of Punjab Kings Retained & Released Players

After a disappointing India World Cup campaign, the cricketing spotlight quickly turns to the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season PBKS underperformed, winning only 6 out of 14 matches and missing out on the playoffs.

Punjab Kings have not been involved in player trades as the transfer window closes on November 26 but were ready to drop a few players as they finalize their holding list and as a result have been shown the door to Bhanukara Rajapaksa, Mohit Rathi, Baltej Dhanda, Raj Angadabawa and Shah Rukh Khan.

PBKS to carry more money into the auction in its kitty

As the franchise gears up for the IPL 2024 auction, strategic decisions loom large. PBKS holds very promising players but needs to rebuild to compete effectively. The recent “TRADE” tool announced by the BCCI opens up the possibility of transferring players, with rumors swirling about PBKS potentially releasing the most expensive player, Sam Curran, for a staggering 18.5cr. Karn’s performance didn’t match his hefty price tag but he was left impressed.

PBKS have retained the experienced skills of Shikhar Dhawan, but boast an admirable list of Indian talent. Arshdeep Singh, Prabha Simran Singh, and Jitesh Sharma are vying for two spots in the starting XI in the squad. With a huge purse in their hands and now well-funded, Punjab Kings are at a critical juncture, ready to restructure the dynamics of their team.
