‘A lot of people will benefit from Shikhar Dhawan’s enthusiasm’ – Mayank Agarwal praises latest entrant to PBKS team

Mayank Agarwal has been a key member of the Punjab Kings since 2018, and he will now lead the franchise after being named captain last month. Indian Test team member Mayank was one of two players kept by Punjab, along with teenage pacemaker Arshdeep Singh.

Shikhar Dhawan is an established entertainer in the prestigious T20 league who has plenty of experience. The newest addition is expected to open alongside Mayank, establishing one of the most dangerous combinations in the IPL this season.

Mayank remained tight-lipped on the opening combination, but he was enthusiastic in his praise for Dhawan, applauding his unparalleled ability and intensity.

“I didn’t want to discuss the batting lineup at this time, well, I can confirm that we’re thrilled to have Shikhar on the team. He’s an all-around showman, a fantastic performer, and a huge performer, and a lot of people will thrive on his enthusiasm. He’s also in a good state of mind.”According to Agarwal.

Mayank Agarwal explains his role as captain:

The newly selected skipper also addressed the added responsibility, saying his focus is on continuing to beat the same way as before without introducing any additional features. Mayank has scored 400 or more points in each of the 2020 and 2021 seasons, and he is likely to play a vital role in Punjab’s bid for the IPL title.

“I’m just a hitter when I hit. The team has a lot of leadership and experience, which makes things easier for me. I want to improve as a hitter and keep doing what I’ve been doing. (On the leadership front,) we devised a strategy to move the team forward”he stated

“We’d like to think we have such a title-winning team, but now it’s up to us, as players putting our skills to the test, to see what we can come up with,” Mayank added.

On March 27, Punjab Kings will face Royal Challengers Bangalore at DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai.
