The Punjab franchise, which has been a part of the Indian Premier League since its inception, has been one of the most disappointing teams in the tournament. Barring the 2014 season where they ended up being runners-up, the team has failed to do justice to the expectations of their fans.

Ahead of the tenth edition, the management made a bold move when they replaced Murali Vijay as the skipper of the team with Glenn Maxwell – someone who has played several scintillating knocks for the team in the past. The management also appointed Virender Sehwag as head of cricket operations.

It remains to be seen whether the team can win their maiden IPL season this year.
