Three Players Who Can Replace Ravichandran Ashwin As Skipper Of Kings XI Punjab; Well, here comes another season and guess what, Kings XI Punjab once again set to enter into the tournament, with an all-new skipper under the supervision of former head coach of the Indian National Cricket Team Anil Kumble. Now, the team will look for a new captain for the upcoming edition of the tournament with Ashwin staying away from Punjab.

Kings XI Punjab have traded Ravichandran Ashwin for Karnataka spinner J Suchith. The left-arm spinner, who is also a handy lower-order batsman, was signed as a replacement in IPL 2019 at his base price of INR 20 lakh. For the trade, KXIP will be benefited with INR 1.5 Crores set to enter into their bank account.

With Ravichandran Ashwin moving away, Kings XI Punjab will once again have to look for a player, who can lead the team. Meanwhile,  we have figured out three players, who can replace Ravichandran Ashwin as skipper of Kings XI Punjab. Have a look:

Well, the young Karnataka batsman would be one of the choices for the team in the upcoming IPL. He will certainly be part of the leadership department, as he is aware of the conditions and the local players of the team.

Of late, he has grown from strength to strength and can be the leader of the pack to make things fall in place. He is a future of the team and certainly got the ability to lead the team under pressure. Mayank Agarwal is currently a regular in Test cricket but everyone aware of his batting skills in the shortest format of the game.
