KXIP squad for IPL 2018 is up for the fans. They have announced the team and the players which will be the part of Kings XI Punjab Team in IPL 11.
In 2014 they have won most of their T20 matches and was on the top of the Points table & finishes the tournament with runner-up spot. In the Team Glenn Maxwell,
Virender Sehwag (now mentor of the team), David Miller ,George Bailey was the key players of that season. Year 2015 was worst tournament for them as far as performance is to be considered. Out of 14 T20 matches they only won 3 matches and was on the last position in the points table.
Last year too they have under performed and again disappointed the all fans. Out of 14 matches they have won only 4 and hold the last position on the points table of 2016 season. None of the batsman and star cricketer like Glenn Maxwell, David Miller etc scored runs for the team.
