2020 IPL Auction: Kings XI Punjab’s Squad After Retention Deadline
Punjab will be looking at the auction as the best way to bolster their squad.
King XI Punjab saw a target of 200 chased down in their only IPL finals appearance, and ever since that loss in 2014, the team hasn’t really returned to that level of success.
Punjab finished 6th last year, but missed out on the playoffs due to a negative run rate. The team is heading into the auction with over INR 40 crore with them, which will allow them to bully other teams for top players.
Punjab need 9 players and are probably in the best position heading into the auction. They have dumped the contracts of top bid getter Varun Chakravarthy, and traded Ravichandran Ashwin away. Keeping the likes of Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal gives them a formidable batting unit.
