"Responsibility changes a bit as captain, but I am really looking forward to it," Miller said.

"No pressure, to be honest. I see it as an opportunity. We have changed the squad a little bit this year, couple of new additions, but most of the squad stays the same. I really believe we can win the competition this year. The fact that we haven't won it, doesn't add any more pressure. It's a great opportunity for the guys to step up," he added.

The 26-year-old said he is looking forward to the captaincy challenge.

"There are guys in the team who play a lot of international cricket. I am looking forward to rubbing shoulders with them. This is my first time as captain, but I am really looking forward to the challenge and what lies ahead," Miller said at a news conference here in the presence of KXIP mentor Virender Sehwag, head coach Sanjay Bangar and team's Chief Executive Officer Fraser Castellino.
