Punjab Kings (formerly Kings XI Punjab) has unveiled their new jersey for the upcoming IPL 2024, slated to take place on March 22. The PBKS will begin their campaign against Delhi Capitals at Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur on March 23, Saturday.

Mohali-based franchise decided to launch their jersey with just a week away from beginning of their campaign in the upcoming IPL season. Skipper Shikhar Dhawan, Arshdeep Singh and co-owner of the franchise and actress Preity Zinta unveiled the new Punjab Kings jersey.

After launching the new Punjab Kings' jersey, Shikhar Dhawan, Preity Zinta and Arshdeep Singh danced on the stage to the song '𝙋𝙪𝙣𝙟𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙮𝙖𝙖𝙣 𝙙𝙞 𝙗𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙮 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙜𝙚 𝙧𝙚𝙝𝙣𝙙𝙞 𝙖𝙖' by Punjabi singer Gippy Grewal. In a viral video, Dhawan and Zinta can be seen shaking their legs while Grewal singing a Punjabi song to energetic crowd and create lively atmosphere at the jersey launch event.

Punjab Kings new jersey is completely different from the previous IPL season. The colour of the jersey remains the same but it has added passion, vigour and spirit to the design of the new Punjab Kings jersey. It has been reported that the fabric of the new PBKS jersey was imported from Vietnam and the manufacturing was done in India.

Speaking after the jersey launch, PBKS Skipper Shikhar Dhawan stated that the passion of the squad is infectious, adding that the team will give everything on the pitch to win the title.

"The love and passion of the sher squad is infectious and it is hard for me to put in words how happy I am, to back here. We have an exciting team this season that will give everything on the pitch as we look forward to don the vibrant new jersey and play at the new home ground infront of all of you." the 37-year-old said.

Punjab Kings haven't reached playoffs since 2015

Punjab Kings are among the three original teams from inaugural edition of IPL to haven't won the title of the tournament yet. The formerly Kings XI Punjab reached the semifinal in the inaugural IPL season in 2008 but lost to eventual runners-up Chennai Super Kings.

In IPL 2014, Punjab Kings reached the final for the first time but were eluded of winning their maiden IPL title after losing to second time champions Kolkata Knight Riders. Thereafter, PBKS have reached the playoffs of the tournament.

Despite changes in captaincy over the last six seasons, things didn't work in their favour. In last two IPL seasons, under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan, Punjab Kings finished 6th in the league stage of the tournament and failed to qualify for playoffs.

Punjab Kings have to put their best foot foreward in order to clinch their maiden title of the season.
