Kings XI Punjab have picked some high-quality players in the recent VIVO Indian Premier League auctions. Now all that is left is to fit the right players in the right place in the playing XI. However, that is much easier said than done considering the various players and their particular strengths.

Recently, we tried to decode the mystery of the playing XI and got a lot of feedback from our fans. Here are a few of the remarks from social media that caught our eye, particularly those who put pen to paper.

There were three potential XIs that we had put out and most had a common choice.

There are plenty of permutations and combinations possible so there was plenty of opportunity available.

Not to mention strategic thoughts and rationale on who goes where and why.

While some were hoping for Virender Sehwag to be in the mix after our cheeky little announcement on April Fool’s Day

Speaking of openers, a good start can win you the game more often than not. With that in mind, we had a special for the team’s opening combination as well. There was a universal choice for the Universe Boss to start the proceedings alongside a bunch of strong options.

Some opted for a tried-and-tested combination.

While others put their points across with some visuals. We admit, they were easier to spot.

Another player who fans wanted to see in action was young Mujeeb Ur Rahman. The 19-year-old Afghan international recently took his team to victory in the World Cup Qualifiers, fuelling hopes he’d do the same with the Kings in his maiden IPL campaign.

All in all, there were a number of in-depth and detailed notes on the team combination. This one summed it up:

We were blown away by the number of responses and the amount of effort everyone took for their favourite team. We would really like to thank each and every fan for their responses and opinions. Hope to hear much more from all of you, and don’t forget to #LivePunjabiPlayPunjabi.
