Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab made a few tough decisions on Wednesday and released all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, along with six others, ahead of the IPL mini auctions. Another big name that won't be a part of KXIP setup is West Indies pacer Sheldon Cottrell. These big names failed to live up to the money they were offered, especially Maxwell -- 10.75 Cr. With the big guns failing, the side finished on sixth spot in the points table. On the other hand, what remains same for them is KL Rahul will once again lead the side. Mayank Agarwal will open with him, with Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran to follow.
