Lee points out why KXIP should win IPL this year
Kings XI Punjab has always been a star-studded team in the Indian Premier League (IPL). But they cannot be found if anyone calculate the success rate in IPL.
Their only success in the 12 editions of the IPL is to be runners-up only once. Despite reaching the final of the 2012 edition, Punjab could not become the champions as they lost to Kolkata.
Former Australian star of the team Brett Lee thinks that Punjab should be the champion in this year’s event. Aussie speedster thinks that the chances of Punjab have increased now, especially after the appointment of head coaches like Anil Kumble.
“Having someone like that (Anil Kumble) in terms of the mix of the team and certainly the squad will be invaluable. The knowledge, the experiences, will definitely help,”
Lee said on the Cricket Connected Show on Star Sports.
Brett Lee, who played for Punjab, added, “Kings XI need to win, they have got a great squad, they have got a wonderful team that can definitely get close and close but they have not got over the line yet, so, I’m actually waiting for that to happen. A great franchise to play for, I put up my hand-up and say that was a lot of fun to play for that franchise.”
