New Delhi: Adam Gilchrist and Darren Lehmann as captain and coach, respectively, of Kings XI Punjab is a big boost for the team's chances in the sixth edition of Indian Premier League. The duo helped the Deccan Chargers win the IPL title in 2009 and Punjab fans will hope they can repeat the feat.
The key foreign players in the franchise are Azhar Mahmood, Dimitri Mascarenhas, David Hussey and Luke Pomersbach, who comes back to Punjab from Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Though the side does not have any member playing for the current Indian team, it is not short on domestic talent. The performances of Parwinder Awana, Piyush Chawla, Manpreet Gony and Gurkeerat Singh will play a big role in determining how the team fares in the competition.
