Indore: Winning the toss, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) captain Glenn Maxwell followed the ongoing tradition of opting to bowl first in his team's encounter with Steve Smith-led Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) at the Holker Cricket stadium here on Saturday.

He announced, "The four foreign players in the team will be David Miller, Hashim Amla, Marcus Stoinis and me."

It may be mentioned that Maxwell is the 10th captain chosen by KXIP in the tenth season of the cash-rich league. RPS wicket-keeper-batsman MS Dhoni has a staggering strike-rate of 157.19 against KXIP. He has also scored 448 runs in 16 innings with four fifties.
