The newly rebranded Punjab Kings will begin its IPL 2021 campaign against Rajasthan Royals in Mumbai. Named Kings XI Punjab until last season, the KL Rahul-led side got off to a promising start in the 2020 season with Rahul and Mayank Agarwal piling on the runs in the first half of the tournament. However, the side’s fortunes waned in the middle half of the season. A late flurry was too little too late for the side as it fell short of making the playoffs.
Punjab Kings will play five games in Bengaluru, four games in Ahmedabad, three games in Mumbai and two games in Chennai.
