Indian Premier League 2016: Kings XI Punjab seek maiden title under new skipper David Miller

Mohali: Despite being one of the most exciting teams in the tournament, Kings XI Punjab are yet to win their first Indian Premier League title. The Punjab franchise have a new skipper this season in David Miller.

It seems that the team heavily relies on Glenn Maxwell, Manan Vohra, Murali Vijay, Shaun Marsh and Miller, who add a lot of substance to their batting line-up.

In 2014, they were a force to reckon with throughout the tournament, before being defeated by Kolkata Knight Riders in the final.

Unlike other teams, KXIP didn't buy too many players at the auction earlier this year as they don't want to disrupt the rhythm of the settled squad.

With a balanced outfit at his disposal, there seems to be no reason why Miller can't lead this team to its maiden title.
