Kings XI Punjab Team News
Kings XI Punjab made some big buys during the IPL auction in December, picking up the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Sheldon Cottrell. But the KL Rahul-led team suffered a big blow as Maxwell is set to miss the beginning of the IPL. Maxwell suffered an elbow injury on February 11 and that ruled him out for Australia's South Africa tour and also the beginning of the IPL.
But the Punjab team will take a lot of strenght from the fact that their skipper is in fine form. The Anil Kumble-side will bank upon Rahul and Gayle to hold together the top order. The Punjab team has a lot of gems in their bowling unit as well. The likes of Mohammed Shami and Sheldon Cottrell make the bowling unit a formidable one.
Kings XI Punjab's Past IPL Record
The Kings XI Punjab have never won the IPL. And with the league reaching its 13th edition, KL Rahul's side will be desperate to lay their hands on the silverware. The Punjab team failed to make it to the play-offs last season, finishing sixth on the points table.
After reaching the play-offs in the inaugural edition in 2008, Punjab have never made it to the playoffs except the 2014 season. In 2014 Kings XI Punjab lost the final to the Kolkata Knight Riders. Following that the Punjab team have not made it to the playoffs even once.
