Apart from the jersey, the Punjab team batsmen will be seen wearing golden-colored helmets this season. The team’s new jersey will be seen on the field on April 12 for the first time. On this day, Punjab will play their first match against Rajasthan Royals. The match will be held at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The previous season of IPL was very volatile for Punjab. There was no consistency in the team’s game at the start of the tournament. It had to bear the brunt of it and the team finished sixth. That too when he won five consecutive matches in the middle of the league and captain KL Rahul got the orange cap. Despite this, the team could not qualify for the playoffs.
