All the teams have stepped up their preparations for IPL 2021. The last IPL was played in the UAE but this time the IPL will not be known. IPL 2021 is likely to be held in India but the final decision will be taken by the BCCI.
But all the IPL franchises have to give the list of players they want to retain or release on January 21.
Talking about Preeti Zinta's co-owned Kings XI Punjab, the team made its captain KL Rahul, but the team failed to make it to the play-offs. Anil Kumble will remain with this team as a coach, but there are many players in the team whom the team would like to exclude now.
The players who would like to keep in the KXIP team are Captain KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Puran, Ravi Bishnoi, Mandeep Singh, Chris Jordan, Morgan Ashwin. All these players had impressed a lot in IPL 2020 so it is possible that all these players can be seen playing in the team.
Talk about players who do not get a chance to play in the team, the first and biggest name is Glenn Maxwell. He could not score a single six in the entire IPL. After this, Sheldon Cottrell is another name, while Mujib ur Rehman, Sarfaraz Khan, Karun Nair, Ishaan Poral, Hardus Vijon, and Prabhasimran Singh may also be out of the team.
The players have 50-50 chances of staying with Chris Gayle. It is followed by Deepak Hooda, Jimmy Neesham, Krishnappa Gautam, J Suchit, Tejinder Singh Dhillon, etc.
