Kings XI Punjab represents the city of Mohali in the IPL. Established in 2008 the teams plays their home matches at IS Bindra Stadium Mohali. Coached by Indian Great Anil Kumble the team is one of the favourites among the crowds. The team is jointly owned Mohit Burman, Ness Wadia, Preity Zinta & Karan Paul. The Kings XI Punjab team has been part of the IPL franchise since the inception of the league, the team’s sporty pink jerseys are distinct on the field against the green turf and a refreshing change from the usual black and blues. The Kings XI Punjab score has not always been the best. In the last ten years, the team has consistently finished at the bottom end of the table. There have been a few displays of brilliance on the KXIP scorecard when they finished as runners-up in 2014 and as semi-finalists in 2008.
The Kings XI Punjab players list has always had a fine selection of superstar athletes who make for an entertaining watch. But, the team as a whole has not always been a strong unit. Let’s take a closer look at the 2020 KXIP squad to see what the team has in store.
