Already in the dumps, the Kings XI face an avoidable problem as the arrival of Azhar Mahmood, the former Pakistani all-rounder who is now a British citizen, has been delayed as he faces  trouble getting his visa to play in the IPL.

Purchased by KXIP for $200,000, Mahmood was seen as a vital investment in batting and bowling. With the team having lost both the opening games, the KXIP skipper Gilchrist is livid at the situation.

"We bought the player seeing that he will be available for the whole season. We are on the eve of the third game and still we haven't been able to get access to the player," he said.
