Earlier in November, Punjab had appointed former India opener Wasim Jaffer as their batting coach and former South African pacer Charl Langeveldt as their bowling coach. He also appointed former Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin as assistant coach. Punjab had appointed England’s ODI World Cup 2019 winning coach Trevor Bayliss as their head coach, replacing former India head coach Anil Kumble.
Punjab named experienced left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan as the captain of the team for IPL 2023 after releasing their 2022 season skipper Mayank Agarwal. Punjab, the IPL 2014 runners-up, finished sixth on the points table in the ten-team IPL 2022.
