January 10, 2011 11:21 IST

As the players' auction for the fourth edition of the IPL concluded on Sunday, Kings XI Punjab coach Michael Bevan expressed satisfaction with the team at his disposal.

The Punjab franchisee has players of the likes of Adam Gilchrist, David Hussey, Dinesh Karthik, Dimitri Mascarehas Abhishek Nayar, Praveen Kumar, Stuart Broad, Nathan Rimmington and Ryan Harris.

Shaun Marsh and Piyush Chawla were part of the team earlier and were again bought this year by the franchise.

"I am very happy with the way the KXIP management was able to put into action the strategic plan that we had drawn to buy players for the upcoming season.

"The team has shaped up with a right mix of batsmen, bowlers and all-rounders thereby ensuring that we are strong on each compartment of the game," Bevan said.

The Twenty20 tournament will begin from April 8.
