Virender Sehwag pairs Robin Uthappa at the top of the order as the second opener. Sehwag has been influential in Kings XI Punjab’s dream run in the tournament. He was consistent with the bat throughout the tournament.

Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma pick themselves in the middle order of the Indian XI of the IPL.

Yusuf Pathan makes way into the side as the third middle order batsman. He played some crucial knocks for his side in the tournament.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Purple cap holder Mohit Sharma are the pacers in the side with Yuzvendra Chahal and Harbhajan Singh taking care of the spin department. Ravindra Jadeja is named as the 12th man for Indian XI of the IPL.
