Kings XI Punjab have also released some of their players before IPL 2021. The biggest name is Glenn Maxwell. He was heavily targeted by the activists after performing the flop in IPL 2020 last season. It was bought by Punjab for IPL 2020 for Rs 10.75 crore, but it failed miserably. Glenn Maxwell has not hit a single ticket in the entire season. Punjab has also released Sheldon Cottrell, Mujib ur Rehman, K Gautam, Jimmy Nis, Varun Nair, Jagdish Suchit, Tajinder Singh and heavyweight Willian.
Pajab showed the way out to most expensive players. Apart from Maxwell, Sheldon Cottrell was playing with Rs 85 million, Gautam with Rs 62 million, Varun Nair with Rs 56 million and Mujib ur Rehman with Rs 4 million. However, he did not perform well last season. Now Punjab has a budget of Rs 53 crore to release the players. Which can be called a very big budget. Which now new players can buy.
Punjab has not won a single IPL title so far. The team has reached the final only once so far. Punjab is experimenting many times to become the IPL winner. However this is not the first time in the last five years that coaches have changed. Anil Kumble is still the coach of the team, and KL Rahul has captaincy.
