New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab on Tuesday named former Australian wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist as the team's captain for the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League starting on April 8.

The hard-hitting left-hander was the skipper of Deccan Chargers in the first three editions of the cash-rich Twenty20 tournament and even led the Hyderabad outfit to the title in IPL II in 2009.

"I am excited to play in the IPL again as part of Kings XI Punjab, one of the most passionate and dynamic teams of the IPL. The role of a captain is a challenging one and I hope that I can live up to the expectations and trust that the KXIP management has shown in me," Gilchrist said in a statement issued by KXIP.
