Matthew Short, the 27-year-old Victorian all-rounder, enters the Punjab Kings squad as replacement for the injured Jonny Bairstow, who failed to recover from a leg injury. Short had a memorable season in the 2022-23 Big Bash League, where he accumulated over 450 runs at a strike-rate of 144. He also proved to be a handful with the ball, a highly capable defensive spinner, bagging 11 scalps. The opening batter, who was adjudged the Player of the Tournament in the BBL, has been signed for his base price of Rs. 20 lakhs.
