KP logo team Kings XI PunjabBelow is list of players purchased, retained or bought in the live auction being held at Bangalore by Kings XI Punjab Team. Please refer to below table for list. For Kings XI Punjab it was bad decision not to retain key players looking from their desperate fight to get their earlier players. According to Preity Zinta what we thought, got wrong. We didn’t have enough time to think and probably that cost us lot. It was not expected, that there such huge price war between teams. This has left us with few money to spend.

Kings XI Punjab
Kings XI Punjab, owned by the glamourous Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia, made it to the semi-final of the inaugural edition igniting hopes of a glorious IPL career. But subsequent editions of the tournament were less successful for the side from the lion-hearted state. They were placed at the bottom of the table in IPL 2010.

Yuvraj Singh and Irfan Pathan were the undisputed Indian stars of the Kings in their first three seasons. Brett Lee, Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara were some of the big international names in that squad. None of the big stars were retained ahead of the IPL Player Auction 2011. Looking for a change of fortune, the Kings went in for a change of side. The Kings bought a host of new players like Adam Gilchrist (captain), David Hussey, Dinesh Karthik and Praveen Kumar through the auction. Piyush Chawla and Shaun Marsh were the only two players from the Kings’ first three seasons to find their way back through the auction route.
