Kxip will have a healthy purse after releasing players like Mujeeb, Tye, Nair and Chakravarthy.
Recently, CEO of Punjab said that Prabhsimran is for the future; That means they ain’t gonna release him.
After addition of extra 3 cr they will have a purse around 30 cr. So they must look to build the following Playing XI:
1. KL Rahul
2. Prabhsimran Singh
3. Mayank Agarwal
4. Glenn Maxwell – 8 cr
5. Nicholas Pooran (wk)
6. Sam Curran
7. RaviChandran Ashwin (C)
8. Mitchell Starc – 9cr
9. Mohammed Shami
10. Ankit Rajpoot
11. Murugan Ashwin
This Playing XI is much more balanced and they still have around 15 cr to spend.
They can spend the remainder of money to buy some local players and also backup for injury prone players.
They can finally enter into the playoffs with this team and can make magic, which they failed to do in 2014 finals.
R.Ashwin is confirmed to be retained but it’s not sure if he will have the captaincy role.
