Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will face Hobart Hurricanes in the second match of the Champions League Twenty 20 (CLT20) at Mohali on Thursday. The two sides are débutantes in CLT20, and will be looking to make the most of their opening encounter. KXIP skipper George Bailey will in fact be facing off against the team he leads in the Big Bash League.

KXIP have an explosive line-up, with names like Virender Sehwag, Manan Vohra, Glenn Maxwell, David Miller, Bailey and Thisara Perera making up the top six. And let’s not forget Wriddhiman Saha, whose century in the final of IPL 2014 nearly sealed the game for KXIP.

Squads:

Kings XI Punjab: George Bailey (c) , Virender Sehwag, David Miller, Glenn Maxwell , Akshar Patel, Mitchell Johnson, Manan Vohra, Mandeep Singh, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Karanveer Singh, Lakshmipathy Balaji, Thisara Perera, Rishi Dhawan, Anureet Singh, Parvinder Awana.
