IPL Punjab Kings Team Players
Kings XI Punjab 2021 team players
KXIP player list is placed here. Along with the Delhi Capitals, the Punjab Kings is probably the most unsuccessful team of all active IPL teams. Like the Capitals, they have only ever reached one final, which was back in 2014, and they have only reached the playoffs on two occasions. However, this is a new season, and they have a new team name as they were previously known as the Kings XI Punjab. The early days of the Kings XI era started with great promise as they finished second in the standings of the first-ever IPL edition, but it has been downhill all the rest since, except for the 2014 season. Punjab Kings XI players list is placed below.
K. L. Rahul captains them, and their head coach is Anil Kumble. They will be hoping for stability under Kumble as Punjab has gone through many coaches over the years searching for that winning formula. They also have some great coaches around him, like Andy Flower and Jonty Rhodes, so they can have no excuses this season.
The Punjab Kings entered the IPL auction with the biggest purse available. Hence, they knew it was unlikely that they would lose any battles with the paddles this year. They made some big moves as they brought in Australian fast bowler Jhye Richardson for the hefty sum of Rs. 14 Crore, and Moises Henriques joined them for Rs. 4.2 Crore. They also spent big on Riley Meredith and the uncapped Shahrukh Khan, who cost a combined total of Rs. 13.25 Crore. But perhaps their best bit of business was picking up the number one ranked T20 batsman in the world Dawid Malan for just Rs. 1.50 Crore.
It promised to be a busy auction for the Punjab Kings with such a big budget, and they did not disappoint. They have some frightening firepower up top, and Malan’s addition is a scary prospect for their opponents. They also have lightning-quick pace in their bowling attack, making them a very well-rounded team. This is exciting times for the Punjab fans, but there is a real expectation this season, something they haven’t experienced before. Will they be able to cope with the pressure?
