Skipper KL Rahul and his Kings XI Punjab squad kickstarted their IPL 2020 journey in a sparkling form, however, six matches in, the team looks like a mess as it is the only team, so far, to have only registered a single win.
KXIP is currently sitting at the bottom of the points table of IPL 2020 with 5 defeats. KXIP and the captaincy of KL Rahul have come under the scanner after the team failed to rise up in the match last night.
On Thursday, KXIP suffered another heartbreaking 69-runs defeat by the hands of David Warner led Sunrisers Hyderabad. Chasing a target of 202 runs, KL Rahul was stuck on 11 off 14 balls before he was dismissed.
Later after the match, KL Rahul, who is leading the team for the first time in IPL, took to his twitter and shared a heartfelt post. He shared a few pictures from the match last night and claimed that ‘faith’ will win over ‘fear’. He wrote:
“Faith over fear 🧿🦁”
