IPL 2021: Punjab Kings (PBKS) squads, schedule, Videos, News, Fixtures, Results, History, Salary, photo, video Indian Premier League, IPL 2021 – Punjab Kings, formerly known as the Kings XI Punjab, have been one of the most underperforming teams in the history of the IPL. The franchise has been part of the tournament since 2008, but have only made the playoffs twice. Now after 13 years of struggle, the team has rebranded as Punjab Kings and will hope for a new dawn and aim to start afresh.
Punjab made it to the playoffs in the inaugural season, where they were beaten by Chennai Super Kings in the semi-final. The franchise went through a lean patch, failing to reach the playoff for the next five seasons, with a host of personnel changes. In 2014, under the captaincy of George Bailey, Punjab made only their second playoff appearance and reached the final, where they were beaten by Kolkata Knight Riders. Since then, Punjab have failed to make it to the playoffs for six straight seasons, the longest in the history of the IPL.
With KL Rahul now leading the side, Punjab will hope to end their playoffs drought and perhaps end their wait for an IPL title. Punjab Kings are sixth in the IPL 2021 standings with three wins from their eight games and will hope for a comeback during Phase 2 in the UAE.
