Punjab Kings captain Sam Curran and Jonny Bairstow bid goodbye to IPL to prepare for ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Sam Curran and Jonny Bairstow bid goodbye to IPL: The 65th match of IPL 2024 was played between Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings. In this match played at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati, Punjab captain Sam Curran played the captaincy innings and led his team to the fifth victory. But now there is no good news for Punjab Kings regarding their last match.

Actually the news is that captain Sam Curran and Jonny Bairstow will now say goodbye to IPL. After this the problem is arising that who will captain the Punjab Kings for the last match.

Said goodbye to IPL to prepare for T20 World Cup
After a spectacular win against Rajasthan Royals in Guwahati on Wednesday, Punjab Kings captain (in the absence of Dhawan) Sam Curran and Jonny Bairstow will have to bid goodbye to the IPL even before the last league match.

There was a lot of discussion going on about when both the players would leave the team to prepare for the T20 World Cup. However, compared to other English players, both of them stayed with Punjab Kings a little longer. After the match against Rajasthan, Curran himself confirmed that he would leave the team along with Bairstow. He said, “Johnny and I are leaving tomorrow.”

Who will become the new captain of Punjab Kings?
With the departure of Sam Curran and Shikhar Dhawan still injured, a small problem has arisen for Punjab Kings. He has to play his last league match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on 19th May. So who will lead the match now? Can Jitesh Sharma or Shashank Singh be given the captaincy?

Leaving aside the matter of captaincy, Punjab Kings are already out of the race for the playoffs. Therefore his last match will not affect any result. In such a situation, it does not matter who leads the team.
