    Shikhar Dhawan will take over the reins from Mayank Agarwal who was appointed captain just before IPL 2022  •  BCCI

    Shikhar Dhawan is set to replace Mayank Agarwal as captain of Punjab Kings from IPL 2023. ESPNcricinfo has learnt that Dhawan's elevation was approved on Wednesday during a franchise board meeting and was backed by Trevor Bayliss, Kings' newly appointed head coach.

    Dhawan, 36, will take over from Agarwal who was appointed captain just before IPL 2022. Agarwal was one of two players - Arshdeep Singh being the other - who had been retained by Kings ahead of the mega auction, where Dhawan was the first player they bought.

    Earlier this year, Kings paid INR 8.25 crore (US$1.1 million approx.) to pick Dhawan, who has been among the most consistent batters since the 2016 IPL. He had a stellar 2020 season where he scored 618 runs at a strike rate of nearly 145 for Delhi Capitals, who had traded him in from Sunrisers Hyderabad. In his first season for Kings, Dhawan scored 460 runs in 14 matches with an average of 38.33 and a strike rate of 122.66.

    Agarwal joined the Punjab franchise in 2018 and forged a strong opening pairing with KL Rahul, the captain till last season. His elevation up from the ranks coincided with a dip in form though. Agarwal scored just 196 runs in 13 matches at an average of 16.33. The team didn't do very well either. Kings ended the season in sixth place. Former India head coach Ravi Shastri, during his stint on ESPNcricinfo's T20 Time:Out programme, was the first leading voice to suggest that Agarwal needed to be relieved of captaincy.

    Dhawan is among the most experienced players in the IPL having been part of it since the inaugural season in 2008. He has also been leading second-string India teams in ODIs, with his next assignment a three-match series in New Zealand. Overall in IPL, Dhawan has been captain in 11 matches (ten at Sunrisers in 2014 and one for Kings last year) with four wins and seven losses.

    It remains to be seen whether Kings will retain or release Agarwal. Franchises have until November 15 to submit a list of the players they want to keep ahead of the next IPL. While Kings settled with Agarwal to pay him a salary of INR 12 crore, as per the IPL retention rules, 18 crore was deducted from their overall purse - 14 crore for Agarwal and 4 crore for Arshdeep, who was uncapped at the time.

    Veteran Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan will return as the captain of an Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise as he is set to lead Punjab Kings (PBKS) from the 2023 season, replacing Mayank Agarwal.

    Notably, Dhawan, who was bought at a huge sum of INR 8.25 crore in the IPL 2022 mega auction, played under Mayank’s captaincy in the 15th season. The Mohali-based franchise confirmed Dhawan’s appointment on Wednesday (November 2) evening.

    “Gabbar will be at the Shikhar for Punjab Kings! #SherSquad, welcome your Skipper, Jatt ji! #ShikharDhawan #CaptainGabbar #SaddaPunjab #PunjabKings @SDhawan25,” the franchise captioned their post on Twitter.

    Not to mention, under the leadership of Mayank, who took over the job after KL Rahul decided to part ways with PBKS, the franchise managed seven wins from 14 matches to finish at the 6th spot.

    Further, the captaincy also impacted Mayank’s batting, as he managed 196 runs from 13 matches. It was Mayank’s most-disappointing season since being given the opening job by PBKS. In 2020, the right-handed batter smashed 424 runs in 11 matches to earn his maiden T20I call-up. Then, in 2021, he again breached the 400-run mark and finished with 441 runs.

    Mayank was one of the two players – Arshdeep Singh being the other – retained by PBKS before the IPL 2022 mega auction. However, whether PBKS will retain or release Agarwal remains to be seen. Franchises have until November 15 to submit a list of the players they want to keep ahead of the next IPL.

    When it comes to Dhawan, he is among the most experienced campaigners in the cash-rich league, having been part of it since the inaugural season in 2008. Dhawan has been a captain in 11 matches (ten at Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2014 and one for PBKS last year) with four wins and seven losses.
