Team Profile: Kings XI Punjab aim for change of fortune in IPL 2018
New Delhi, April 5 (CRICKETNMORE) - Even as the Kings XI Punjab prepare for the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) under new skipper Ravichandran Ashwin, they will hope for a turn around in their fortunes after failing to live up to expectations which they raised at the start of each of the past 10 seasons.
The Punjab-based franchise managed to reach the top four only on a couple of occasions. They finished third in the inaugural edition of IPL in 2008 and then came agonisingly close to winning the title in 2014 but were denied by Kolkata Knight Riders.
In the previous edition, they missed the play-offs by a whisker to eventually finish at the fifth spot.
