Kings XI Punjab is yet to win an IPL title. The dry run of the Kings XI Punjab has been stretched far too long and they would surely want to end this drought. Kings XI Punjab has only retained Axar Patel and they would be going to the auctions with a huge purse.
As revealed by Virender Sehwag, the mentor of the team, the Kings XI Punjab will go into the auctions with a budget of 58 crores. This budget as told by Virender Sehwag is about 20 crores more than what they had in the last auctions. So, given this huge budget Kings XI Punjab can have a very handsome and match winning team.

Ashwin will bring in a lot of experience to the side. Ravichandran Ashwin has 100 wickets in the IPL is among the leading 10 wickets takers in the Indian Premier League.
He’s a champion bowler and can contribute with the bat too. He will be one handsome buy which many teams would be chasing.
2. Trent Boult
He’s one lethal bowler who’s been sensational in the limited overs format for New Zealand. He has been one of the main reasons why New Zealand is the top ranked team in the T20 rankings. Trent Boult leading the pace attack would be a match winning pace attack for the Kings XI Punjab.
3. Colin Munro
Three T20 centuries isn’t ordinary. One has got to be a special talent to do that and Munro has that. He’s an explosive batsman who would be destructive on top of the order. Any team would back themselves to win if Munro is a part of their team.
4. Lokesh Rahul
He’s a fine T20 player and would form a great opener for any team. He also has a T20 hundred to his name. He can blast the opposition at any point in time.
Lokesh Rahul can be a wicketkeeper batsman just like he’s been one for the RCB in the last season. He would be one very valuable player to have for any team that buys him.
5. Marcus Stoinis
Stoinis is one fine all rounder. He can smash the ball a long way and also pick crucial wickets whenever needed. Stoinis is a match winner and he’s one of the best all rounders to have. Now with Stokes heading to the prison perhaps, Stoinis will be the hot favourite.
