With the VIVO Indian Premier League auction coming up, the Kings’ Army has been extremely active on social media. They have taken to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to send us everything from team suggestions (Yes, we’re watching those! 👀) to messages wishing us luck for the upcoming season (Thank you!). The digital world is abuzz with posts from our fans. We compiled some of these here (It was soooo difficult to choose 😬) to give you a taste of what’s trending for the Kings.

We want to start by saying how excited we are to start working with our new coach Brad ‘Dodgeball’ Hodge, who gave us some love back.

There has been no love lost for Irfan Pathan. He played for KXIP for three seasons, starting in 2008, and a decade later there are demands to get him back! Will the hashtag #BringBackIrfanPathan work, we wonder? 🤔

Axar Patel, meanwhile, is already onboard. We are convinced that he fits best in our colours but not many agree, sparking debates online.


Do you Agree with Kings XI Punjab's Decision to retain Akshar Patel? ● YES ● NO

But we trust the young lad and so do many of our fans.

As for the rest of the squad, we have been thinking of several combinations. And so have fans of Viru Paaji.

Answering their call are a number of members of the Kings’ Army, who would like nothing better than to see their favourite team dominate the league this season. We have gotten some great suggestions!

As the comments and tweets keep pouring in, we hope all your love and good wishes continue for us through the season. Watch out for more as the march of the Kings’ Army continues on social media. We know we will!
