Let's look at the Strengths and weaknesses of KXIP:
KL Rahul-led Kings XI Punjab surely has one of the best batsmen in their batting lineup in the form of Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Glen Maxwell and Mayank Agarwal, who can easily demolish any bowling attack with their power-hitting abilities. They have quality batsman in the top, middle and lower order. KL Rahul and Mayank Aggarwal usually open the innings. The skipper KL Rahul himself is in great touch and scored 239 Runs so far in 4 matches with an impressive strike rate of148.44. Their batting lineup is quite deep and they have all the responsibilities to provide a solid base to them. KXIP experienced batting line up will play a key role for them in IPL 2020.
Kings XI Punjab not only have experienced players but also have some young energetic and exciting players in their squad. The newcomers are generally energetic and eager to prove their worth if they are guided by experienced players they can do wonders. Ravi Bishnoi and Mayank Agarwal are performing really well so far in this fantasy cricket league of Dream11 IPL 2020. Mayank Agarwal has scored 246 runs in four matches with a strike rate of 166.21. The mystery spinner Ravi Bishnoi also picking wickets for them. So, KXIP's younger and experienced players are doing wonderfully in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League 2020.
KL Rahul's Kings XI Punjab struggled in the last few years in their weak and inexperienced pace attack. IPL 2019, we saw them winning just 5 matches out of their 8 away games. This is not a good sign for a team that has an impactful record at home. There is no doubt about the performance and abilities of their pacers like Mohammad Shami, Sheldon Cottrell, James Neesham and Hardus Viljoen. Except for Shami, the others may not come out good on these bouncy and green tracks of UAE.
