Bollywood star Preity Zinta’s co-owned Punjab King (Earlier Kings XI Punjab) team had a good first season (2008) when they finished fourth on the table. In the 2014 season, under the leadership of the swashbuckling Indian batsman Virender Sehwag, the Punjab side reached the finals for the first time but couldn’t beat Gautam Gambhir‘s Kolkata Knight Riders. Since then the team hasn’t been able to make any mark whatsoever.

Last year the entire team was changed but it yielded similar results. K L Rahul was appointed the captain. But yet, the team finished 6th out of the total 8 teams in IPL 2020.

2014 IPL: Kings XI Punjab

In 2014, under George Bailey’s leadership, the team won the first five games on a trot. Virender Sehwag, Glenn Maxwell, and Mitchell Johnson gave important contributions throughout the tournament. In the semifinals, Virender Sehwag scored a brilliant 122 and stormed into the finals. In the finals, wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha made a spectacular 115* but the Kolkata Knight Riders chased down the massive total.

No Good Luck in 2015 & 2016 for the Kings XI Punjab

In the later seasons, the team was at the bottom of the table in 2015 and 2016. 2017: the team came 5th. In 2018 the team was changed completely with a new leader altogether. R Ashwin was given the responsibility of captainship. KL Rahul played some spectacular innings along with Chris Gayle but the team remained 7th on the points table.

Kings XI Punjab Owner

The Kings XI Punjab owner was bought by the Dabur group’s Mohit Burman (46%), the Wadia group’s Ness Wadia (23%), Preity Zinta (23%), and Saptarshi Dey of the Dey & Dey Group (minor stake). The group paid a total of $76 million to acquire the franchise.

In 2010 there was a controversy surrounding BCCI and Lalit Modi. They announced that it had terminated the franchise contracts of Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals. However, the teams announced that they would take whatever legal action possible to remain in the IPL.

They filed a case in Mumbai High Court accusing the IPL of getting rid of two teams so that when the bidding process starts for the 2012 IPL season the contract would be given to a more lucrative bidder. However, the High Court reinstated Kings XI Punjab.
