Punjab Kings (PBKS) owner – Who is the owner of PBKS in IPL 2023?

Mohit Burman, Preity Zinta, Ness Wadia and Karan Paul are the joint PBKS owner for the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Punjab Kings (PBKS) is one of the teams, which is yet to win the coveted IPL title.

They have had players like David Miller, Yuvraj Singh, Brett Lee and many others over the years. But the team has just not been able to deliver. 2014 was their best season when they advanced to the final of the tournament where they lost to Gautam Gambhir’s Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

Wriddhiman Saha scored a hundred for them, but Manish Pandey’s knock in KKR’s run-chase overshadowed it. The team has underperformed to the extent that they have not reached the playoffs since playing in the final nine years back against the Knights.

They named David Warner, Ravi Ashwin and Mayank Agarwal as their captains, but none of them were able to turn the fortunes of the team. Before the 2023 edition, PBKS were dealt with a body blow after Jonny Bairstow was ruled out due to a toe injury.

The Punjab team named Matt Short as his replacement. Short was the Player of the Tournament in the Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23 where he played for the Adelaide Strikers. Short also helped his team register the highest successful run-chase in the history of the BBL. In that game against the Hobart Hurricanes, Short also scored a century.

For now, Shikhar Dhawan is the skipper of the team and has done well thus far with the bat in hand. The Kings began their campaign with two wins on the trot and looked in pretty good form. But two defeats on the trot have again pushed them back.

The Kings, however, have reasons to cheer for as Liam Livingstone has joined them and would soon be seen in action. Whether or not Dhawan can change the fortunes of the team remains to be seen for the time being.
