The group plays its home matches at the PCA Stadium, Mohali. Since the 2010 IPL, they have been playing some of their home recreations at Dharamshala also. The Kings XI Punjab have dependably battled in the IPL and beside one season when they completed sprinters up in 2014, they have attempted to contend. After consecutive base put completes in 2015 and 2016, the signs were better last season when they about made the playoffs. They are an intriguing group to watch this season, will they backpedal to battling, or would they be able to expand on last season’s execution and test for the playoffs by and by. The Kings XI Punjab’s catchment territories are Kashmir, Jammu, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana, additionally clear from the letter grouping “K J H P H” in the pennant of the group’s logo. Aside from completing IPL sprinters up in the 2014 season when they likewise bested the group table, the group has shown up.
Like Rajasthan Royals, they likewise held only one player-all-rounder Axar Patel. What’s more, went ahead to buy 20 players amid the two-day sell off in Bengaluru. They made KL Rahul the joint-costliest Indian cricketer by spending too much Rs 11 crore on the main day of the closeout before he was bested by Jaydev Unadkat [Rs 11.5 crore] on the second day. Previous Chennai Super Kings and Pune Supergiant spinner R Ashwin was their second costliest buy at Rs 7.6 crore took after by Australia’s Andrew Tye. The Kings XI Punjab have purchased three colossal hitters to play at the highest point of their batting request in the 2018 season, trusting those three players can convey them to some critical triumphs. Chris Gayle, Aaron Finch and David Miller will all play in 2018, and on their day these three are a portion of the greatest and best hitters in the IPL. Each of the three have a great deal of experience as well, they recognize what it takes to win in the IPL, and that can help the adolescents in this group.
Loopholes of the team:
On the off chance that there is one zone of shortcoming in this group it appears to be in the knocking down some pins division, particularly with regards to quick rocking the bowling alley. Australian Andrew Tye, R Ashwin and Mohit Sharma seem to be the pick of the bowlers, and they will need to perform at the highest point of their diversion and take a great deal of wickets to bring achievement. These players have the capacity, however the absence of an absolute star strike bowler appears to be a stress for the Kings XI Punjab, and that may cost them this season. The center request is something which may inconvenience KXIP indeed. Additionally, KXIP may confront an issue of bounty for the opening space. Aaron Finch, Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Murali Vijay are for the most part players who have exceeded expectations as openers. With an excessive number of them in the squad, while KXIP have no other alternative yet to fit a couple of them in the center request, it stays to be seen whether they can make comparable effect down the batting request. Their pace assault additionally looks delicate, as notwithstanding Andrew Tye and Mohit Sharma, they don’t gloat of any pacers who can inconvenience the batsmen.
