Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) started off their IPL 2018 campaign really well as they have won 4 games out of 5 so far. They are at the top of the points table with 8 points in their bag. The side looks really well balanced and destructive.
The franchise bought many young talents likes of KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal as well as Karun Nair in the January auction earlier. Interestingly, all of them have done well for the side and are keen to take KXIP to their first title ever. Obtaining Chris Gayle, one of the best-known openers in T20 format, KXIP looks in a deadly combination.
The party began in the dressing room after a comprehensive victory over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at their den, Eden Gardens. KXIP side was fabulous in the run chase and KL Rahul was awarded Man of the Match (MOM) award for his blasting inning.
After the encounter, the whole team of KXIP was doing the party in the dressing room but the Karnataka boys had some other plans.
They recorded a video where both players were saying, “Ee sala cup namde”, which happens to be the tagline of Royal Challengers Bangalore this season. That tagline means “Cup is ours this year” and both players seemingly mocked RCB. Here’s the video:

Kings XI Punjab will play their next game against the Delhi Daredevils (DD) on Monday (23rd April) at Feroz Shah Kotla.
KXIP is full of confidence as they have won three games in a row and would look to continue their winning streak. On the other hand, DD has failed miserably in the tournament and managed to win only 1 game so far.
