IPL 2020 team guide: Kings X1 Punjab

Established in 2008, the Kings X1 Punjab are jointly owned by Mohit Burman, Ness Wadia, Preity Zinta and Karan Paul.

Having only reached the playoffs on two occasions (including losing in the final back in 2014), The Kings hope to go one step further this year to claim their first championship.

The team play their home matches at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali and since the 2010 IPL, they’ve also played some of their home games between Dharamshala and Indore.

Fans of the Kings X1 Punjab are fortunate to still see their favourite team play in the IPL after they were nearly forced out of the league by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in 2010. After two years of going through the courts, they finally got the decision overturned by the High Court in India to remain in the league.

This year The Kings have chosen a new captain in KL Rahul, taking over from Ravichandran Ashwin, and new coach Anil Kumble to help lead the team to success. KL Rahul formed a formidable opening partnership over the course of the last season with star player Chris Gayle, which they hope to emulate in the 2020 season.

Kings XI Punjab finished the 2019 season in sixth position, with KL Rahul being the highest run scorer for the team with 593 runs in 14 matches.
