    "I was always keen to get Pietersen. He would be a superb addition to the team. We had a list of players before the auction and KP topped that list. We needed to strengthen our batting and I was prepared to pay more for him," Mallya said.

    "It is a worthwhile investment and ensure the balance that we wanted in our team", he said.
