KXIP is an IPL franchise that has several highly talented players in its roster. However, the team’s performance in the IPL often leaves fans wanting more. KXIP has not won the IPL trophy even once. However, the team has made two playoff appearances. In 2008, Shaun Marsh of KXIP earned his only orange cap. In 2009, Kings XI won the fair play award. At the end of the 2018 season, Andrew Tye held the prestige of wearing the purple cap. But, apart from that, KXIP has no significant accomplishments tied to the team’s name.
On the other hand, the legacy of the Mumbai Indians is full of awards and achievements. MI is the most decorated team in the history of the IPL. With 4 IPL and 2 CL trophies to its name, MI has garnered much acclaim for itself. MI even won the most recent rendition of the IPL tournament. Jasprit Bumrah emerged as the player of the match after MI’s victory against CSK. All in all, both teams consist of strong players who have proved themselves from time to time. MI’s track-record does give the team an edge against KXIP, but nothing is set in stone.
