Sunil Gavaskar names the Weakest Team in IPL 2022 according to him

Punjab Kings built a very wise squad this time around. They were one of the wittiest teams in the IPL Mega Auctions this year. KL Rahul leaving them was a big blow to the franchise but they moved on and made a killer strategy. Punjab retained only 2 of their players and had the biggest purse value.

They used this purse value to build a fabulous squad in the IPL 2022 Mega Auction which they can target for the title this season. However, Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar is not impressed by their team at all. In fact, he has even gone to the point of saying that there is no expectation at all from them this season.

Sunil Gavaskar has said that Punjab Kings do not have an impact player like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli or Ravindra Jadeja and this will be a big disadvantage for them. Last year they had it in KL Rahul and he himself used to carry Punjab in almost all the matches. However, this time they lack that and thus they can not be considered to be serious title contenders.

“Punjab Kings is one of those teams who are yet to win the title. This time, I don’t think they have an impact player in the team they have built. On the other hand, though, this could also benefit the side. When there are very low expectations, there is very less pressure”.

However, Gavaskar also said that as there is not much expectation from Punjab Kings, this might also give them an upper hand as they will be playing freely and in that way, they might be successful in IPL – one never knows.

“When the pressure is less, the players are freer in their approach. In that aspect, I think Punjab Kings can surprise a few. Will they win the trophy? I doubt that. See, this is a T20 format and you have to be in that consistent cycle of winning.”
