Kings XI Punjab, who have never been the title winners of the Indian Premier League (IPL), will be finishing on the eight spot this time as well as predicted by Brad Hogg.
He has analyzed that other than Jordan and Rahman, no other oversea player has shown consistency in the league. For the IPL, it is required by every franchise to dig most out of an oversea player. Kings XI Punjab, having the players like Maxwell, Gayle, and Neesham, have lacked consistency in their departments – the ups and downs of the team need to be resolved to clinch the top-most spot.
Kings XI Punjab are going to end on the last spot: Brad Hogg
“For me, their overseas player contingent is all match-winners apart from Rahman from Afghanistan and Jordan. Those two have specific roles in this particular team and are quality bowlers.”
“But the other guys there like Maxwell, Gayle and Neesham, they just have the odd standout games, they are not very consistent with what you want from an overseas player.”
“They are too much up and down. That’s why Kings XI are going to finish last.”
It is to be noted that KXIP will be looking for their first-ever title. In the IPL 2020, the side under KL Rahul will be playing against Delhi Capitals on 20th September.
