Lokesh Rahul, Yuvraj Singh, R Ashwin and Chris Gayle are some of the key players who have joined the Punjab team this year. Preity Zinta, co-owner of the franchise, puts on most of the big players in play, which will undoubtedly increase the pressure on the other tables. It was a Bollywood actress shopping spree that Virender Sehwag, who was sitting next to her at auction, posted a hilarious tweet to catch her.

With so many things in the team, while the KXIP has no choice but to adjust some of them in the middle order, it remains to be seen whether this can create a similar effect on the multiplication. His pace of attack also seems fragile, with the exception of Andrew Tye and Mohit Sharma, do not boast of any pacers that who can trouble the batsmen.
