Kings XI Punjab IPL team players

Kings XI Punjab player list is placed here. The Kings XI Punjab came into the ninth edition of the Indian Premier League with the hopes of turning their bad luck around. After finishing at the bottom place in the 2015 season, they brought new names in their squad, in an attempt to reach the playoffs at the least.

Kings XI Punjab Players Released Ahead of IPL 2017: Mitchell Johnson, Farhaan Behardien, Rishi Dhawan, Kyle Abbott

The list of Kings XI Punjab retained players by the team is placed below. However, things barely went according to the plan for the Kings XI. To begin with, three of their key overseas players couldn’t play for the team – Shaun Marsh and Glenn Maxwell succumbed to injuries, while Marcus Stoinis flew to Australia for personal reasons. Amidst this, the pressure fell on the shoulders of Murali Vijay and Hashim Amla to perform in the batting department.

The side also boasted of the Protean batsman David Miller in the opening order, but the international players simply failed to step up to the mark. The highest run scorer for the side last season was Vijay, who certainly did his job as a captain. With 453 runs in 14 innings, no other batsman came even remotely close to matching that tally.

Moving on to the bowling department, over here too it was the Indian performers who played the best. This is certainly not surprising, considering that Stoinis wasn’t a regular in the playing XI. Sandeep Sharma was the best bowler for the team, as he took 15 wickets in 14 matches. He was complimented well by Axar Patel and Mohit Sharma, who took 13 wickets each.

The side also had the Australian seamer Mitchell Johnson, who played only three matches in the tournament. This is certainly quite surprising, given that he is one of the best pacers in the world. For the next season, one thing which the Kings XI needs to consider is bringing in quality international talent, to support the core of the team. With two seasons in the bottom already, it will be interesting to see if they can break the jinx at their third attempt. Kings 11 Punjab ipl team 2017 is placed below.
