Biggest Strengths of Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2020

Kings XI Punjab is quite an explosive side when it comes to the batting. This team has the likes of Chris Gayle and Glenn Maxwell in their squad who can single handedly destory any bowling lineup on their day. Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul and the youngster Sarfaraz Khan can also play a crucial rule in posting the par totals on the score board.

Biggest Weaknesses of Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2020

Analyzing the biggest weakness of Kings XI Punjab team well the only department which comes in our mind is the bowling department. This team is enjoying the services of the deadly pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan and Sheldon Cottrell but if anyone of these three gets injured then they don’t have a equally good replacement on the bench.

Also talking about the Spin department of Kings XI Punjab well this team doesn’t have even one quality international level spinner and this can hurt this team big time and cost them another IPL tournament without any doubt as these UAE pitches are expected to help the spinners a lot in the 2nd half of the tournament when the wickets will get slow and the balls will start turning a lot.

Winning Chances of Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2020

We are not expecting Kings XI Punjab to qualify for the final four in the 13th edition of IPL as KXIP only has a 5% chance of winning the IPL 2020. Again not having any international level quality spinner and suitable quality replacements for the pace attack on bench is the biggest reason for this prediction.
