But it is the KXIP batsmen, which has been their biggest asset, which includes a number of destructive batsmen, namely Sehwag, Bailey, Maxwell and Miller. Maxwell has been their best bet with 552 runs at an amazing strike rate of above 180. With Sehwag coming back to form in the last match, scoring a huge hundred, KKR bowlers might want to see the batsman back in the pavilion as soon as possible.
Sunil Narine holds the key for KKR having taken 20 wickets. It is primarily the spin trio of Piyush Chawla, Shakib and Narine, who needs to be consistent with their line and length, along with their variety. But, on the other hand, KXIP have batsmen who are great players of spin bowling such as Maxwell and Sehwag, who can murder any bowling attack in the world. Who will prevail?
Punjab has never won the prestigious competition, but this season might be their best chance to win the title, while KKR has won the competition in 2012. If Kings XI Punjab wins the title this season, they need to give a major share of credit to their coach Sanjay Bangar for having chosen some of the best players in the IPL auction.
