Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag believes Mayank Agarwal’s batting form has been affected since becoming Punjab Kings’ captain for the IPL 2022. Sehwag further advised the PBKS skipper to focus only on his stick and forgetting that he has the role of captain or something like that. other.
The new season of Indian Premier League (IPL) started with 10 teams and many teams have new prospects with changes in their team after the mega auction. Additionally, some franchises started the season with new leadership. One of these teams is Punjab Kings and Mayank Agarwal leads them this season. So far, they have won two games out of the three they have played.
They won against Bangalore Royal Challengers (RCB) by five wickets then against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 54 points. However, Mayank Agarwal’s form is a source of concern for the team. In the three matches, he has scores of 32, 1 and 4. Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag is of the opinion that the captaincy of Mayank Agarwal affects his baton.
“No matter how he leads the team, he has a very good bowling team that can control the proceedings. Mayank’s batting has been affected since he became captain. If you talk about his form until the last year he was consistent. He should focus on his stick and forget that he’s got the role of a captain or whatever. He should just hit free without any pressure,” Sehwag told Cricbuzz.
Sehwag also advised the fly-half to show attacking intent from the first ball.
“Because it’s the format to showcase striking skills because in ODIs or Tests you have to be careful. But when it comes to T20s, the format allows you to start attacking from the start” , he added.
PBKS will face Gujarat Titans on Friday at Brabourne Stadium.
