Earlier, in November 2022, Punjab roped in former India opener Wasim Jaffer as their batting coach and ex-South Africa fast-bowler Charl Langeveldt as the bowling coach. They also brought in former Australia wicketkeeper-batter Brad Haddin as the assistant coach.

In September 2022, they appointed England’s 2019 ODI World Cup winning coach Trevor Bayliss as their head coach, after former India head coach Anil Kumble’s contract was not renewed.

Punjab also made veteran left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan the captain of the team for IPL 2023 after releasing their 2022 season skipper Mayank Agarwal, who was picked by Sunrisers Hyderabad in Player Auction at Kochi in December last year.

Punjab, the IPL 2014 runners-up, finished sixth on the points table in the ten-team IPL 2022 and missed out on the playoffs despite having an ultra-attacking batting line-up.
