Due to this, Harshal Patel has become the most expensive Indian bowler and player of this auction. Harshal Patel is known for bowling well in the death overs, slow and with variations.

Shikhar Dhawan will lead PBKS in IPL 2024. Punjab has a few options to partner Dhawan at the top, including the explosive pair of Jonny Bairstow and Matthew Short. But the English player's form has not been good for some time now and the Australian player should be seen as a backup option.

Prabhasimran Singh, who played some exciting innings in IPL 2023, including a sensational century against Delhi Capitals (DC), should be given another good chance. Young people would like to be more consistent. Shikhar Dhawan and Prabhasimran Singh can open both the innings.

Atharva Taide's ideal position is at number 3, which means if Bairstow plays he will have to move to number 4. This would mean that he often starts against spin, and that is not ideal. With the Englishman not among the runs, he should be replaced by Sikandar Raza, who provides an additional bowling option and solid middle-order hitting ability.

Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran and Jitesh Sharma form the backbone of PBKS's middle order. While the former two will be expected to contribute with the ball as well, Jitesh Sharma is also at the wicketkeeper's disposal.
