Kings XI Punjab boasts a roster of the game filled with the top players who’ve done wonders in their cricket careers. Goliaths like Shaun Marsh, Chris Gayle, Glen Maxwell, Mohammad Shami, and David Miller have played under the KXIP brand name. However, despite this vicious lineup, KXIP has never been able to win an IPL trophy, till date. Thus, it is fair to say that KXIP has not been able to live up to its known capabilities during the IPL tournament. Two KXIP players namely Shaun Marsh and Andrew Tye have won the orange cap and purple cap awards respectively during a few IPL deliveries. KXIP also holds an IPL fair play award from the 2009 season of the tournament.

KXIP vs RCB
RCB is yet another IPL franchise that has underplayed its hand. This team has reached the finals thrice but, till date, hasn’t been able to taste the fruit of victory at the end of those clashes. For the last three seasons of the tournament, RCB’s performance has been severely underwhelming. However, this can’t be taken as a disputed fact that Virat Kohli is the leading run-scorer in IPL history. Virat is the captain of the team RCB. Under his guidance, the team has definitely been improving their scores in the league.
KXIP vs RCB 2018
The 2018 clash between KXIP and RCB turned out to be downright embarrassing for the former. Despite playing in its home ground, KXIP gave one of the worst performances of its career. RCB wiped off the entire KXIP batting lineup in less than 16 overs. KXIP amassed a laughable total of 88 runs at the loss of 10 wickets. Not even a single KXIP batsman held his own in that match. Umesh Yadav’s phenomenal bowling performance took the limelight during the 1st innings. When RCB’s time to bat came, the team fired from all cylinders. Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel single-handedly beat the target score in 8.1 overs. Needless to say, KXIP’s bowling squad failed to pull off any miracles neither. It wasnt the bet performace from the Kings XI Punjab team. Umesh Yadav bagged the ‘Player of the Match’ title after the end of the 2nd innings.
KXIP vs RCB 2019
KXIP’s luck did not change in its 2019 home-ground clash against RCB either. However, this loss was not nearly as shameful as the one in 2018. This was somewhat of a nail-biting contest. Once again, KXIP batted in the 1st innings, and RCB put up a chase in the 2nd innings. This time around, KXIP played all 20 overs and put together a final score of 173 runs. Maybe, the return to PCA Stadium, Mohali helped KXIP regain its footing. Chris Gayle contributed most of the runs to the total. He held his ground till the very end with a total contribution of 99 runs. The other batsmen of the team provided him adequate support as and when needed. However, KXIP’s commendable batting performance didn’t prove to be enough to win them the match. RCB overpowered KXIP’s defenses by the end of the 2nd innings. AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli gave steady performances and completed most of the chase by themselves. They scored 59 runs and 67 runs respectively. The final scorecard declared that RCB beat KXIP by 8 wickets and 4 remaining balls. AB de Villiers won the player of the match title.
