Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) had retained Manan Vohra and David Miller none of whom one usually thinks of while discussing big names. However, they had a field day at the auction today, often teasing other franchises to raise the prices and backing out, and making some excellent purchases. They still have a Right to Match card left.

 

Biggest purchase: Mitchell Johnson and George Bailey.

 

Biggest surprise: Parvinder Awana

 

Most confusing move: Buying Virender Sehwag for an unexpectedly high price.

 

Probable dark horse: Cheteshwar Pujara.

 

Team strength: A lot of money to play with. They will probably go all-out for the unsold big guns tomorrow.

 

Team weakness: Lacks a strike bowler.
