KL Rahul Reveals The Reason Behind Punjab's New Name And Logo
Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul on Thursday said that the new name of the team represents it better as a unit.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise announced that it was changing its name from Kings XI Punjab(KXIP) on Wednesday and unveiled a new logo as well.
"I liked the name Kings XI but the team is a lot more than just 11 players," said Rahul in a video tweeted by Punjab Kings.
"We are supposed to be like a family, supposed to feel like a family, supposed to feel like a whole unit. I am quite confident that the change in name will bring us good fortune this year," he further said.
Veteran batsman Chris Gayle echoed Rahul and said that it's good to have a change.
"Absolutely, I love it. Sometimes, it's good to have a change as well. I like what KL said. It's not about the 11 players. It's going to get everyone more involved. Punjab Kings is the way to go," Gayle said.
