Kings XI Punjab Team Review 2018

Will Kings Rule The IPL

Kings XI Punjab was established in the year 2008, is going to play their 11th IPL season. Owned by actress Preity Zinta, NessWadia, and Mohit Burman, Punjab qualified for the league stage only twice. They started with some good performances in the IPL. They were the semi-finalists of the inaugural IPL season. Later in the year 2014, they became the runners-up.In the same year, they are also qualified for the Champions League t20. But they ended their journey at the Semifinals. PCA stadium, Mohali is the home ground for Punjab. They also prefer to play their matches at Dharamsala, due to high fan support. In their auction in 2018, Punjab made some good buying’s for the team, aiming for their first IPL knock.

Ashwin’s unexpected promotion as a captain will result in either way. As he doesn't have any other previous experience as a captain, it will be difficult to predict the team's performance. Ashwin previous collaboration with MS Dhoni will be an advantage for the team. Punjab have one of the best batting order in the season. Aaron Finch and Chris Gayle who remained unsold in the bidding can thrash any bowlers on their day. Aaron Finch was performed well as an opener in the last IPL season. Gayle's purchase will be a luck test for the team. Top order batsmen Lokesh Rahul, Manoj Tiwary can set the fire in the scorecard. Miller and Yuvraj's experience will be an asset to the team. Yuvraj will be hoping for a good comeback in the IPL. Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel will contribute from the bat and ball. Axar Patel is the only player that retained from their last season. Karun Nair and Mayank Agarwal are capable of giving team winning knocks. Karun Nair makes some good strike rotations in the middle overs. Punjab also brought some good bowlers to the team. Ashwin, Axar Patel led spin bowl will test any world class batting lineup. Yuvraj and Chris Gayle, despite their expectations from batting, they can also do well with the ball. The team lacks for some good pacers. There is no other option for the experienced pacers if Andrew Tye and Mohit Sharma injured.But they can do some good performances. Domestic players like Ankit Rajpoot,Mujeeb Zadran, Akshdeep Nath, Pardeep Sahu, Mayank Dagar will get some good opportunities in the season to showcase their skills. Virender Sehwag will be a cool coach for the team and can energize the team with his trolls.
