David Malan is one of the best T-20 Players in the world and is currently rated as best T20 batsman in the world. The main reason behind the buying of David Malan is to keep a backup for the Superstar Gayle also there seems to be less chance that Punjab Kings will include David Malan in there starting line-up .The reason behind it is that the openers Rahul and Mayank are doing absolutely great and David Malan is a opener and a top order batsman. Also the management community has declared that they will let Gayle to play all the match despite injury issues . This clears that Gayle will play either as a opener or at 3 position. This clarifys that David is chosen as a backup for gayle.

2. Jhye Richardson

Moving on to another fabulous player buyed by Punjab kings is Jhye richardson . He is an australian pacer who is giving good performances. The probable reason behind buying of jhye richardson could be to help arshdeep singh and jordan in fast bowling and will also allow the team to keep arshdeep out of the playing 11.

Conclusion

To conclude Punjab kings team is looking quite balanced. The team has not focused on much known players . This time they have also saved good amount of money and even invested some .
