The Punjab Kings team suffered a major setback ahead of the match against Rajasthan Royals when their captain Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the match due to a shoulder injury. After that, at the time of the toss, it became clear that Sam Karan is taking over the captaincy of Punjab in this match instead of Dhawan. Fans were also quite surprised to see that before the start of IPL 2024, when all the captains were called for a photo shoot with the trophy, Shikhar Dhawan was replaced by Jitesh Sharma, after which it was believed that It was said that he will take over the responsibility of the vice-captain of the team. Now, in the match against Rajasthan Royals, despite Jitesh Sharma being in the playing XI, Sam Karan was holding the captaincy. In this regard, the head of cricket development of Punjab Kings team, Sanjay Bangar, gave a statement on the whole situation.

We never announced Jitesh as vice-captain.

In the press conference after the match against Rajasthan Royals, Sanjay Bangar, who came from the Punjab Kings team, while answering the question asked about Jitesh Sharma, said that we never announced to make him vice-captain. We had already decided that if Shikhar Dhawan does not play in some matches, Sam Karan will take over the captaincy in his place. It took some time for him to join the team as he wanted to play a few matches before coming to the tournament, which is why we couldn’t send him to the captains’ meeting in Chennai. IPL rules are clear that you can name any one player, so we decided to send Jitesh Sharma.

Sam Curran has now performed better with both bat and ball.

The 17th season of IPL has not been good for Punjab Kings so far but Sam Karan has definitely managed to impress everyone with his all-round game. While Karan has scored 126 runs in 6 matches at an average of 21, including a half-century, he has taken 8 wickets with the ball at an average of 19. Punjab are scheduled to play their next match against Mumbai Indians on April 18, in which Sam Curran could also be seen captaining the team.
