The way Mayank Agrawal played cricket in the past year of IPL was so amazing, that the franchise of Punjab Kings gave him the responsibility of leading the whole team in the upcoming IPL season. He was initially a good performer, but as compared to his past records, it was a little lower, according to the devoted cricketer of team India, Harbhajan Singh.
Under Mayank Agrawal, the Punjab Kings have won some good matches and also lost some, but they were spotted next to the Delhi Capitals at the point table of IPL 2022. Punjab Kings lost seven matches and won seven matches in T20 cricket, earning around 14 points and finishing sixth in the IPL 2022 point table. Punjab Kings have also dared to defeat the champions of IPL 2022, Gujarat Titans, after Sunrises Hyderabad.
The 31-year-old Mayank has suffered a tough time in the IPL 2022, which affected his performance. Mayank Agrawal has scored around 196 runs in 13 games at an average of 16.33. The player has only marked one half-century, which implies that it’s a very bad season for Mayank Agrawal. Mayank Agrawal has taken over as captain of the Punjab Kings after scoring 441 runs at an average of 40.09 in the IPL 2021 and also picking up the captaincy from KL Rahul in the IPL 2022.
If we talk about the skipper of Punjab Kings in IPL 2022, Mayank Agrawal has faced many problems in the 15th season of IPL while playing the role of captaincy. We missed the aggregate performance of Mayank Agrawal in the IPl 2022, says Harbhajan Singh at Sportskeeda Cricket, when he was asked for the most shocking moment of IPL 2022.
Previously, Piyush Chawla, India’s former captain, thought the same for Mayank, that the captaincy role has affected the performer Mayank Agrawal in IPL 2022. Handling such pressure was really tough for someone, and it is also not for everyone. Piyush Chawla stated during an ESPNcricinfo interaction.
Really a tough season for Mayank Agrawal, Ravindra Jadeja, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli, who was known as the most popular batters in the cricket world, but in IPL 2022, their actual games were missing. Everything now hinges on next year’s IPL, when the auction will begin and teams will select their fantastic players or replace them with new players.
