Punjab Kings releases statement to clear the headlines about Mayank Agarwal


Punjab Kings and their captain Mayank Agarwal were in the headlines and the team has now released a statement to clear out the things.

Earlier this week, Mayank Agarwal, an Indian cricketer, was in the headlines after reports suggested that the Punjab Kings franchise of the Indian Premier League (IPL) intended to remove him from his captaincy duties. On Wednesday morning, however, the group posted an explanation concerning the rumors on their official social media accounts. No PBKS representative has made a statement about the matter, Punjab Kings claimed in the tweet.

According to the same report, it was said that the Punjab Kings have also chosen to split company with head coach Anil Kumble. Due to their poor performance over the past three seasons, Punjab Kings are reportedly considering removing the renowned India skipper Kumble. Although the report said the team is in contact with Eoin Morgan and Trevor Bayliss over the coaching position prior to the IPL 2023, PBKS failed to include Kumble in their statement on Wednesday.

His 2021 and 2020 statistics, in which he scored 441 runs in 12 games and 424 runs in 13 games, respectively, stood in stark contrast to his 2022 statistics.
