Kings XI Punjab will restart their quest for the Indian Premier League (IPL)title with another heavy splurge in the 2020 IPL Auctions. The team co-owned by Preity Zinta reached the finals in 2014 and since then have not been able to replicate the form. Last season they have revamped their squad by bringing in the likes of Chris Gayle, Sarfaraz Khan. However, nothing much changed as they failed to make it to the IPL playoffs.
This time around, KXIP has the most money, meaning they could spend it on purchasing a few quality players. The management will look to strengthen the side with a few decent allrounders. Anil Kumble will also look to bring in a spinner to replace Ravichandran Ashwin. Here is the full squad of KXIP.
