Kings XI Punjab is one of the lesser-successful teams in the IPL history as they have never won the IPL title and have finished in top 4 just two times. Last season, KXIP were at their very best in the first half of the tournament as they won 5 out 7 matches they played.

But the story was totally different in the second half of the tournament as they could only manage to win just 1 out 7 matches they played and finished at number 7 in the points table.

So they will surely want to turn things around by conquering the tournament this time around as they have a quite balanced squad.

Here, we will take a look at three players from Kings XI Punjab to watch out for in the forthcoming edition of IPL.


#3 Andrew Tye

Aussie medium-pacer Andrew Tye is currently one of the best bowlers in the shortest format of the game. His wicket-taking ability and variations make him an asset in T20 cricket. Hence he will be one of the most important players for Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2019.

The T20 specialist was the leading wicket taker and hence the Purple-Cap winner in the previous season of IPL with 24 wickets from 14 matches at an astonishing average of 18.66 and economy rate of 8.00. Kings XI Punjab will be expecting Andrew Tye to do the same in IPL 2019.

His overall IPL numbers are also quite impressive as he has taken 36 wickets from 20 matches at an excellent average of 16.36 and economy rate of 7.64 with 5/17 being his best figures. The 32-year-old will be looking forward to continuing his dominance in IPL 2019 as well.
