Two of the best fielding efforts of the season involves KXIP players. Nicholas Pooran and Mayank Agarwal defied gravity and took a high leap in the air near the fence to pull inside a ball that would have otherwise given the opposition six runs.
Kings XI Punjab, after a terrible start to the season where they won only one out of their first seven games, have seen a remarkable turnaround, winning five games in a row.
The KL Rahul-led side for the majority of the IPL 2020 campaign were languishing at the bottom of the club but have emerged as one of the top contenders to qualify for the playoffs.
With 12 points from as many games, they are placed fourth on the points table, after Kolkata Knight Riders lost to Chennai Super Kings on Thursday.
