The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) franchise had a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde sort of IPL 2020. They were captained by KL Rahul for the first time and started off by losing 6 games out of 7 in the first half of the tournament.

When they looked down and out of the race for the playoffs, KXIP turned a new leaf and won the next five matches in a row out of 7 and reignited the hopes for playoff qualification. However, the equation was not in their favor and a loss to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their final league match ended their IPL 13.

Though they had to be proud of their resurgence of sorts after the streak of losses in the first half of the tournament, they were badly hit by some losses in which many of their stars, particularly foreign players, didn’t perform as per expectations.

While KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal excelled with the bat and Mohammad Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, and M Ashwin held the front on the bowling side; the middle order seemed to be non-existent with some of the foreigners looking totally out of their elements.

Therefore, TEAM COC takes a look at five players whom KXIP team management gave multiple chances to come good, but they only returned with disappointing performances in the IPL 2020.
