IPL team Kings XI Punjab today announced Kyle Abbott and Benjamin Cutting as replacements for the injured bowling duo of R Satish and Stuart Broad.

"It is rather unfortunate that two of our players Stuart Broad and R Satish have been ruled out of IPL 2012 due to unfortunate and untimely injuries," said Col. Arvinder Singh, COO, Kings XI Punjab.

"We hope that they both recover soon and we can see them in action again very soon. We welcome Benjamin Cutting from Australia and Kyle Abbott from South Africa in to our squad for this season."

Abbott is a medium-pacer from South Africa, while Benjamin Cutting is a right-arm medium-pacer from Australia who led the 2009-10 Sheffield Shield wicket list with 46 scalps at an average of 23.91.

"I am excited about Kyle and Ben being a part of our squad. Both these seamers are young and talented and have the right spirit to lead the team to great heights. I am very confident about the team’s performance and looking forward to a great tournament ahead," said Joseph Henry Dawes, Bowling Coach, Kings XI Punjab.
