Kings XI Punjab took everyone by shock when they announced the retention of 20-year-old Manan Vohra, a relatively unproven customer in the domestic circuit.

The Preity Zinta co-owned franchise have also decided to retain hard-hitting South African batsman David Miller for the next three editions of the IPL.

The retention of an uncapped player for such a hefty price raises the debate as to whether it was an astute decision from the financial as well as cricketing point of view.

Vohra has played just 6 first-class matches so far and has scored a hundred and two fifties. What probably prompted the Kings XI to retain Vohra was his massive 187 in the Ranji Trophy just over a week back against a Jharkhand attack which boasted the likes of Indian pace bowler Varun Aaron.

The Mohali-based franchise will be looking to overhaul their team after another disappointing campaign in the IPL. They have failed to reach the semi-final/playoff stage since the inaugral edition of the IPL.
