With the new pair of skipper KL Rahul and head coach Anil Kumble, Kings XI Punjab’s team can shed their magic in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) starting on Saturday. The Punjab team has reached the play-offs only twice in the history of the league. Rahul, who was recently the best performer for the Indian cricket team in limited-overs cricket, was appointed the captain of Punjab before the season. Apart from him, former Indian captain and veteran off-spinner Anil Kumble was appointed head coach.
Rahul had recently told IANS from Dubai, “I have always enjoyed the captaincy role and I have always carried this responsibility on my shoulder. I am going to do it with an open mind. I am going through every match every day Will learn. “
Both Rahul and Kumble come from Bengaluru and it is expected that the team should benefit from this.
Kumble had said, “Knowing Rahul and other players well in advance helps us understand each other clearly. I have seen Rahul as a player from a very young age. This was his first major (Captaincy term). He captains at a junior level, but not in a high-level match. He has been brilliant so far. “
