In the 27th match of IPL 2024, Rajasthan Royals defeated Punjab Kings by 3 wickets on Saturday. The match was very exciting, but in the end Shimron Hetmyer scored the winning shot to give victory to his team. Punjab Kings took the field in this match without their regular captain Shikhar Dhawan. Sam Curran led Punjab Kings due to injury to Shikhar Dhawan. However, now there has been a big update on Dhawan’s injury, which has added to the problems of Punjab Kings.

The coach revealed

Punjab Kings coach Sanjay Bangar has revealed that Shikhar Dhawan has suffered a shoulder injury. In such a situation, he may stay away from cricket for the next one week. If this happens, Shikhar Dhawan will be out of the matches against Mumbai Indians (April 18) and Gujarat Titans (April 21) at his home ground Mullanpur.

My shoulder is hurt.

“He has a shoulder injury, so he is likely to be out for at least a few days,” Bangar said. He is an experienced opening batsman. He is very important for the team. Sam Curran is leading Punjab Kings in the absence of Dhawan. However, the team appointed Jitesh Sharma as the vice-captain. Only Jitesh was seen in the captains’ conference before the start of the league. IPL had then clarified on social media that Jitesh is the vice-captain of PBKS.

Jitesh is not the designated captain

Bangar clarified, “Jitesh was not the designated vice-captain. This perception may be because he attended the captains’ seminar or meeting at the beginning of the IPL. Sam had led the team last year also. U them. Of. There was a delay in coming from Chennai and he wanted some training sessions, which is why we could not send him to Chennai. So Jitesh was sent, because the instructions were that a player had to come.
