The team is on a two-game winning streak and have only four games left to restore their pride. Skipper Virat Kohli will be looking to make a statement as he is the one responsible for this surge the side has had recently. The franchise is in a dire need to at their best or else are going to finishing the campaign in the last spot in the league table.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab are the only side in the IPL right now who have an even record. In 10 games played, 5 are victories while the other losses. They do have some really talented players in the roster in terms of star potential and the management has to make sure that the players show up when it really matters. Only a few games are left and playoff spots are up for grabs. With KXIP in the fifth spot, they have an outside chance of usurping teams ahead of them and clinch the top four position.
