Kings XI Punjab co-owner Ness Wadia has revealed that all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin is set to leave the club ahead of the 2020 season.

Delhi Capitals and a number of other teams are interested in securing Ashwin’s services and his new side will be announced before November 14.

Opening batsman KL Rahul is expected to captain Kings XI Punjab in Ashwin’s departure.

“I know there is a lot of speculation but we are still talking. Ashwin is a very good, versatile player. Any team would love to have him. We are talking to a few different teams (including Delhi) and as soon as we are clear, we will announce it,” Wadia told PTI.

“We have amicably come to a conclusion that we should part ways and now we are trying to get the best fit, best solution for everyone. We are talking to a few teams to see where the best fit is and the best value comes for both Ashwin and ourselves. We want the best deal for everyone.”

In the two seasons under Ashwin’s leadership, KXIP have failed to make it to the play-offs on both occasions, finishing seventh in 2018 and sixth in 2019.
