On looking to the team of Kings XI Punjab, there are many add ups in the team of it. We can say that there are many names which have been added up in the team members. While coming up in the ninth edition of the Indian Premier League hoping to turn their bad luck around. Because of finishing at the bottom in the previous year, news names have been added in IPL Season 10. There are many questions which have been asked to the team that when the power of a king would be shown by the players of the team by the spectators, who came up with a great chaos and enthusiasm to support their team, but as record shown by the previous year, these all gone in vain. From the team players, the key overseas players could not play for the team i.e. Shaun Marsh & Glenn Maxwell because of injuries and Marcus Stoinis flew to Australia because of his personal reasons. There is a responsible pressure on the shoulders of Murli Vijay and Hashim Amla to perform the batting department.

Now coming on to the team of Rising Pune Supergaints, which are back in action after the 5 days sighting the pay-offs within the two games to play. The first one is the elimination which will be seen in todays match with daredevils. The team of Pune is quite eager to finish the team off and move to 18 points in the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium and the fixture which is final to win over Kings XI Punjab.
This team is having the potential to win as we have seen the efforts by the whole players of the team by making their position at number 3rd. Ajinkya Rahane is not in form which could be seen in the last year IPL 2016. So play under a new captain, Rahane has started off with a bang scoring 60 in the first game against MI. Against the Sunrisers, in the tricky chase he had only contributed 2 runs. Rahul Tripathi: Just like the diminutive Swapnil Asnodkar making waves for Rajasthan in the first edition of the IPL, the Ranchi-born all rounder is making waves. In the initial overs he has been right on the money has finding gaps without being so much adventurous. He already has four thirty plus scores as he has played from the five games. Steve Smith: To save the disaster of the last year, the new captain is on the mission. As a batsman he had been undone by the googly of Rashid khan in the last match. There was a kind of disgust in his reaction saying it all. This match will be the primary motive when he will be walking out to bat against DD. M.S Dhoni: The Indian Former Captain has finally got back by tearing the Sunrisers attack open with a breathe taking innings to take his side home. As the promotion up the order was in the offing, Dhoni grabbed opportunity with his both hands open against the last year’s title winners.
He scored 61 runs just in 34 balls which includes five 4’s and three 6’s. Today he has been expecting in the same role against DD as well. Ben Stokes: Recently the most expensive player in this IPL season has not lived up to the billing in this IPL, performing below from his lofty expectations. He took 3 wickets against RCB, but he is looking off-color with his bat.
Match Venue: Maharashtra cricket Association’s international Stadium (Mumbai).
