One of the three franchises to have not won an Indian Premier League title despite playing each season since its start in 2008, Kings XI Punjab would be desperately wanting to set the record straight this time round. In 2014, Punjab had come close but couldn’t go past Kolkata Knight Riders in the final. While that remains their best season performance till date, even it had happened half-a-decade ago. Apart from not winning title, the franchise from the Northern most part of the country usually finishes in the bottom four, which further increases their misery. This year’s IPL auctions saw Kings XI laying hands on perhaps the most raw talent in the country.
