Kings XI Punjab
However, to help Bailey out in his job, there would be Virender Sehwag as well who knows the subcontinent conditions pretty well. Actually, it’s Sehwag who was believed to be appointed as captain by the franchise because of his experience, but, to the surprise of most of the people, the franchise named Bailey as skipper. The reason why bailey might have been preferred was the current form. Sehwag’s current form hasn’t been good. So, the Kings XI Punjab management would have thought that the responsibility of captaincy would add to his stress.
The biggest challenge for Bailey would be to pick the four foreign players to include in the playing XI. There are a lot of overseas superstars in the Kings XI Punjab squad including Bailey himself. So, to choose four out of them is going to be a difficult task for the veteran Tasmanian.
The four foreign players who would perhaps play for Kings XI Punjab in their first match against Chennai Super Kings would be George Bailey, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell and David Miller.
