Kings XI Punjab is yet another unsuccessful team which hasn’t managed to win an IPL title yet. The team is known for its chopping and changing of players every year they play and that has been their main drawback. They have never gone with a settled unit so far.
KL Rahul who is in the form of his life has been given the captaincy this year. Let’s find what happens this year.
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) is a T20 franchise team in the India Premier League (IPL). The KXIP franchise is one of the 8 original teams that participated in the inaugural IPL 2008 and is a joint venture of Preity Zinta, Ness Wadia, Karan Paul and Mohit Burman.
The 2014 IPL season was best for them when they topped the points table and were runner ups (got beaten by Kolkata Knight Riders). Other than this, they have managed to make only 1 playoff appearance in 12 seasons of the IPL so far.
