One of the original teams of the IPL franchise, Kings XI panjab has been playing on the fields since 2008. KXIP was bought by Bollywood sweetheart Preity Zinta, Wadia group’s descendent Ness Wadia, Dabur India’s Mohit Burman, PrithviRaj Singh Oberoi and Karan Paul. KXIP is based in Mohali, Punjab and represents the state in the T20 tournaments. KXIP has had a below average performance in the tournament, apart from a surprising performance in the 2014 season where the team lead to the finals and became the runners-up. With poor performance, the team has also had a fair share of controversies when in 2010, the team faced expulsion due to the dispute surrounding BCCI and Lalit Modi, IPL announced the termination of KXIP along with Rajasthan Royals. However, KXIP went into a legal battle filing a case in the Mumbai High Court against IPL accusing the franchise of eliminating the two teams for future financial gains. Ultimately, Kings XI Punjab was reinstated with the verdict of High Court.
KXIP has had the maximum number of changes in terms of captains and players, but still has not proven its worth in the game. This year the team will be led by Ravichandran Ashwin, with Mike Hessan as the couch who will try their level best to uplift the team and have a better season than ever before.
Astrological Perception of KXIP for IPL 2019
Our prominent Astrologers at Astroyogi have done a thorough research on the astrological aspect of the team’s chances in the upcoming season. The predictions have been made emphasising on the facts and figures. Based on the predictions, here is an overview of what could be expected of the team in the IPL 2019.
Based on the first letter of the Kings XI Punjab, the ruling sing of the team is Gemini. The ruling star of Gemini is Mercury and at the beginning of IPL on 23 rd March, Mercury is in the 9 th house, the house of fortune along with Venus. Although, things are looking good for the team, the involvement of Rahu in Gemini along with Saturn and Ketu present in the 7 th house will throw hurdles in the path to success for KXIP.
On the basis of numerology, the letters in the name Kings XI Punjab produce the number 7 to be their ruling number which is the number of Ketu. Based on the short form KXIP the number identified is 7 as well and the presence of Ketu along with Saturn gives clear indications that KXIP will have a tough time in the game and reaching the semis can be a long road to achieve for the team. Apart from this the team may suffer due to health issues of the team members. Only way to achieve their goals will be by working hard and maintaining a good performance.
