FROM CHRIS GAYLE, RAVI ASHWIN TO SURESH RAINA, we have seen the top guns struggling for form. While some teams have been lucky to win despite their icon players not performing, some franchises have visibly been affected. Here’s a quick glance at some names who haven’t performed to expectations in the ongoing IPL.
KINGS XI PUNJAB WICKET-KEEPER Wriddhiman Saha credited team mentor Virender Sehwag for helping him regain his form as a batsman.
KINGS XI PUNJAB PACER Sandeep Sharma said his side is undaunted by the prospect of bowling to the in-form Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli.
KINGS XI PUNJAB seamer Kyle Abbott believes his side cannot be written off so early in the tournament and could pull off a come back like Mumbai Indians did in the earlier season.
SOUTH AFRICAN OPENER HASHIM AMLA is all set to replace injured batsman Shaun Marsh for the Kings XI Punjab in the ongoing season of IPL.
KINGS XI PUNJAB opener Shaun Marsh has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament with a back injury he picked up during his side's six-wicket loss to Kolkata Knight Riders on 19th April.
KINGS XI PUNJAB spinner Axar Patel bagged four wickets in five balls, including a hat-trick, to help his team overcome the table-toppers Gujarat Lions.
AS PER A REPORT in new Indian express, the KXIP think-tank are likely to name opener Murali Vijay as their new skipper for the rest of the season.
KINGS XI PUNJAB all-rounder Glenn Maxwell rued not having taken their chances in their match against defending champions Mumbai Indians, where the Punjab side fell short of chasing 190 target by 25 runs.
KINGS XI PUNJAB player Murali Vijay is a regular in the Indian Test line-up, but the right-hander has not been able to cement a spot in the limited overs formats in the last couple of years.
