Meanwhile, Indian pacer Ankit Rajpoot will also represent a new franchise in IPL 2020. Rajpoot impressed for the Kings XI Punjab during his two-year stint with the franchise, but has been traded to the Rajasthan Royals for the upcoming edition.
Rajpoot picked up just three wickets this past season, but will be remembered fondly by Punjab fans for his five-wicket haul against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2018, which is the only five-wicket haul by an uncapped player in IPL history.
