Will CSK win the IPL 11 trophy

Kings XI Punjab - Kindah

The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP ) are a franchise cricket team based in Mohali (Chandigarh CR), Punjab, which plays in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The franchise company was founded in 2008 and is jointly owned by Mohit Burman, Ness Wadia, Preity Zinta and Karan Paul. The team plays its home games at the PCA Stadium in Mohali. Since the 2010 IPL they also play some of their home games in Dharamsala or Indore.

The Kings XI Punjab catchment areas are Kashmir, Jammu, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana - obviously from the sequence of letters "KJHPH" in the team logo's banner. Aside from the 2014 season in which they topped the table and finished second, the team has only made one more playoff appearance in 12 seasons.

Franchise history

In 2007, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) established the Indian Premier League cricket tournament based on the Twenty20 format of the game. Franchises for eight cities were made available in an auction in Mumbai on February 20, 2008. The team representing Punjab was bought by Dabur groups Mohit Burman (46%), the Wadia group, Ness Wadia (23%), Preity Zinta (23%) and Saptarshi Dey from the Dey & Dey Group (small stake ). The group paid a total of $ 76 million to acquire the franchise.

Exclusion from the IPL and return

Following the controversy surrounding the BCCI and Lalit Modi in 2010, the Indian Premier League announced on October 10, 2010 that it had terminated the IPL franchise agreements between Kings XI Punjab and the Rajasthan Royals. The teams announced they would take legal action to stay in the Indian Premier League. Initially, the team tried to negotiate a solution with the league, but when one couldn't be reached, they decided to file a lawsuit with the Mumbai Supreme Court accusing the IPL of getting rid of the two teams so that the bidding process could begin In the 2012 IPL season, the contract would be awarded to a more lucrative bidder.

Kings XI Punjab was made with the participation of the High Court.

Team history

2008 IPL reinstated season

The 2008 tournament got off to a sluggish start for Kings XI Punjab as the team lost their first two games. However, 94 Kumar Sangakkara runs helped them win the third game. Despite the absence of Brett Lee and Simon Katich (who were required to tour the West Indies with Australia), the team found its groove. Driven by their balanced bowling line-up and effective top finish, the team won nine of their next ten games and secured a spot in the semifinals, where the tournament ended with an all-out loss of nine wickets to The Chennai Super Kings.

Shaun Marsh was arguably KXIP's star player in the first IPL. The Western Australian opener was overlooked at the IPL player auctions and signed by the franchise on April 9th. He finished the tournament holding the Orange Cap - the award for the player with the most runs in the competition - with an average of 68.44 and a hit rate of 139.68 in 11 innings. Marsh managed to reach a century and five half centuries over the course of the tournament.

2009 IPL season

Kings XI Punjab, who finished as a semi-finalist in 2008, began with ambitions to win the tournament trophy. These were supported by their new sponsors Emirates. With two available slots, Kings XI Punjab placed bids for Jerome Taylor and Yusuf Abdulla in the second IPL auction.

The team had a hit as most of the Australian cricketers were unavailable. The team ran out of available pace throwers after Jerome Taylor resigned at the last minute with an injury.

The team lost heavily against the Delhi Daredevils and the Kolkata Knight Riders. However, they got back in shape by defeating the Royal Challengers. the Rajasthan Royals and the Mumbai Indians. Then the team experienced a roller coaster ride with four wins and four losses in the next eight games. The team's hopes for the semi-finals were dashed after losing to the Chennai Super Kings in their last game.

2010 IPL season

Kings XI Punjab lost six games against the Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Daredevils, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Deccan Chargers, Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians, however, managed to win a match against Chennai Super Kings when the scores were tied and that Match went to a super over. Kings XI Punjab was strengthened with the return of Brett Lee against Kolkata, but he was not at his best. Shaun Marsh returned in the match against the Mumbai Indians. Despite his good performance, which spanned half a century, the team lost the game. You finished IPL3 in the last position.

2011 IPL season

The 2011 IPL season looked promising as they named a team with Michael Bevan as coach and Adam Gilchrist as captain.

Kings XI Punjab missed the playoffs by two points (or a win). This meant that they finished fifth on the points table.

2012 IPL season

Kings XI Punjab finished sixth overall, winning eight of sixteen games.

2013 IPL season

Kings XI Punjab failed to qualify for the play-offs, but batsman David Miller was playing the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 51st game against one of the tournament's innings when he crushed 101 of 38 supplies, including eight fours and seven sixs. Miller came into play in the eighth game 51-3 with a goal of 190. He corrected the game and led Punjab to a six-wicket win with two overs left. Adam Gilchrist retired at the end of the season.

IPL season 2014

Australian T20I captain George Bailey led the roster for the seventh time. Other purchases included Virender Sehwag, Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Johnson. Kings XI Punjab started the tournament by winning the first five games played in the United Arab Emirates due to elections outside of India. The standout player was Glenn Maxwell with his unorthodox and powerful hit, who scored 95, 89 and 95 in his first three innings with a hit rate of over 200 and received the same contribution from South African David Miller. Both made the team look invincible. There were plenty of innings from veteran Indian batsman Virender Sehwag and young star Manan Vohra that made it easier for medium-order batting to be facilitated and allowed the team to qualify for the playoffs. Due to a 122-run knock by Virender Sehwag against the Chennai Super Kings in the semifinals, KXIP reached the final. There they faced the Kolkata Knight Riders, where they fought first and set a good target of 199 thanks to Wriddhiman Saha's 115. With 94 out of 50 balls by Manish Pandey and the consistently high running rate of his teammates, including 13 out of five balls by Piyush Chawla, KKR were able to win the final in the final of the game with three wickets.

They won their third match of the competition against the Northern Knights and qualified for the semifinals. They continued to win their last group game against the Cape Cobras but were excluded from the tournament, which won the tournament, in the semifinals with a disappointing loss to their IPL rivals the Chennai Super Kings.

With KL Rahul and Chris Gayle on top form and Andrew Tye and Mujeeb with ball, the team won 5 of their first six games and eventually became favorites for the title. However, their weakness in the Indian core became evident as they could only score one win in the next eight games and despite a dream start did not qualify for playoffs from the start.
