Punjab have not been the best side when it comes to the performance in the Indian Premier League. The team has only once been able to make it to the IPL finals. It was in 2014 and they were beaten by Kolkata Knight Riders. They must be hoping to put up a better performance this season after spending a whopping amount of Rs 67.4 crore rupees to get their 20 players during the two-day auction.
Punjab bought the destructive batsman KL Rahul for a whopping amount of no less than 11 crore rupees.
Former Chennai Super Kings and Pune Supergiant spinner R Ashwin was their second costliest purchase at Rs 7.6 crore who has been appointed the captain of the Punjab Kings XI.
Here's their complete squad
Axar Patel, KL Rahul, Ravichandran Ashwin, Andrew Tye, Aaron Finch, Marcus Stoinis, Karun Nair, Mujeeb Zadran, Ankit Singh Rajpoot, David Miller, Mohit Sharma, Barinder Singh Sran, Yuvraj Singh, Christopher Gayle, Ben Dwarshuis, Akshdeep Nath, Manoj Tiwary, Mayank Agarwal, Manzoor Dar, Pardeep Sahu, Mayank Dagar.
