KXIP Strength and Weakness

Strengths of Team KXIP

KL Rahul and Chris Gayle will be the batting mainstay. A lot will depend on how these two play at the top. Gayle has been in an outstanding form recently as he showcased that in the ODI series against England.

Weaknesses of Team KXIP

But somehow, the middle-order is lacking punch. David Miller, who once used to be a force to reckon with for Kings XI Punjab, isn’t that big a threat anymore. However, the bowling department looks strong due to the presence of Andrew Tye, Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Shami.
