India batter Mayank Agarwal is likely to captain Punjab Kings.

“In all likelihood, Mayank will captain the side. The announcement is expected later this week,” an IPL source told PTI.

“Dhawan is a welcome addition to the side and was always on the radar at the auction. He is a champion player but it seems Punjab were keen on Mayank as captain ever since K L Rahul left the team,” the source added.
