Kings XI Punjab: VIVO Indian Premier League 2019 Tickets, Squad, Schedule & More
Much promise was offered by Kings XI Punjab across Mohali and Indore, and there was plenty of talent on offer. In 2019, they will hope to go one step further.
Insider.in was the official ticketing partner for Kings XI Punjab in Vivo IPL 2018.
IPL 2018 - Season Overview
A season that promised so much ultimately couldn’t live up to the expectations created at the start.
A new captain, new squad, new backroom staff meant some new ideas and strategies which, in principle, were refreshing and noteworthy. Lokesh Rahul had a phenomenal season with 659 runs, a KXIP record and so did Andrew Tye whose 24 wickets might win him the Purple Cap despite KXIP not reaching the playoffs!
In Chris Gayle and Karun Nair, they ensured their top order was one of the best in the tournament, while young Mujeeb ur Rahman and Ankit Rajpoot provided plenty of signs to prove that the future is in good hands. R Ashwin’s captaincy was interesting and fresh as well and he too will have learnt from this experience as Kings XI Punjab look to come back next season stronger and smarter.
IPL 2019 - Auction Overview
In a surprising turn of events, KXIP had the busiest auction by bringing in 13 new faces to the family - a highest among the eight teams.
The highlight of the night was when the team purchased the T20 star mystery spinner Varun Chakaravarthy after a bidding war that also involved Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals. The mammoth amount of money was the most any team has spent on an uncapped Indian player in this auction.
Having a shortage of pace bowlers, they roped in India international Mohammad Shami and English all-rounder Sam Curran. The team also found their 'Simran' this year, the 17-year-old whiz kid, Prabhsimran Singh, a wicketkeeper-batsman from Patiala. Speaking of wicketkeepers who can bat, KXIP also found themselves a ‘keeper’ in Nicolas Pooran.
After releasing 11 players ahead of the Season 12, KXIP have completed their squad with 23 players.
