One of the biggest surprises of the IPL player retention was Kings XI Punjab’s decision to retain just one player. They opted to go with Axar Patel ahead of several T20 superstars as they look to build a team that could help them claim their maiden IPL title.

Retaining only one player allows them to use three RTM cards in the auction and with players such as David Miller, Glenn Maxwell, Hashim Amla, Marcus Stoinis and Sandeep Sharma in the pool, the Punjab team will look to bring all their three cards into play.
