Former India team’s explosive opener and Cricketer of Kings XI Punjab, Virender Sehwag said that the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 has played in a different format or played cricketers for India, this season their IPL team can fulfil The title. Viru said,”Until last season, we were the only cricketers to play for India, Patel was the only cricketer. I want to clarify that the presence of more foreign cricketers in the team has not yet been able to give us the IPL title. This time, there are more than half a dozen cricketers like the captain of a spin all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, Akshar Patel, Yuvraj Singh, Lokesh Rahul, Manoj Tiwary, Karun Nair, Mohit Sharma and Barinda Saran, who is in India for Test, One -Day or T-20, or have played. Our team has spent a huge amount of money on the Indian cricketers, and they will give us the title of our side, “he said.
Kings XI Punjab captain Ravichandran Ashwin said, “My experience of playing in the captaincy of Sehwag, Dhoni and Yuvraj will be beneficial to captaining Kings XI Punjab. Although captaincy is not a new responsibility for me. When Tamil Nadu took the title in the Vijay Hazare One-Day Trophy in my captaincy, I was only 20 years old. Then due to the ICL, many prominent cricketers had left the team from Tamilnadu and had challenging situations for me.
Yuvraj’s contribution is essential in my career because when I first played in the Challenger Trophy, he was my captain. Yuvi gave me a lot of opportunities. Now with my long experience and the captaincy of different captains, I have been impressed with the specifics of the captaincy. I am aware of my responsibility as a captain. I will try my best to win the title and the Kings XI Punjab, along with everyone in the Punjab team. “
