The Preity Zinta owned franchise now has a daunting task of selecting a captain from a group of talented individuals. KXIP is a formidable group of experienced and youth which included the likes of Yuvraj Singh, R Ashwin, KL Rahul, Aaron Finch, Chris Gayle and David Miller.

And, to make the task easier the franchise has decided to take opinion from their fans before settling on their new captain. KXIP have posted a picture of Yuvraj, Axar, Gayle, Ashwin and Finch, asking the fans on who should lead the side in the upcoming edition.

However, the majority of the fanbase want Yuvraj Singh to be handed over the captaincy role, given the fact that he successfully led them to semi-finals of the first-ever IPL season.
