Kings XI Punjab starts their season in a winning note, but in the later half of IPL, they began to lose matches. In IPL 2018, KXIP won the starting 6 matches out of 7 matches. But after that, they lost their next games. Again in this season they started in the same way but again lost the matches in the later half of IPL and could not qualify for the playoffs in both seasons.

After the CSK match, R Ashwin said,

“It was not easy for us, but we haven’t been outplayed much in many games, except against SRH. We just haven’t been able to close out the close humdingers. There are a few reasons, we didn’t close out games, particularly in the power-play and our middle overs. I feel that when teams plan and come back to us, we need to respond properly. That’s where some teams tick the box – they have played together for a long time. We haven’t qualified, but we have to build a core group to keep going for the next few seasons. CSK has a fulcrum of how they go about things, same with MI, SRH does it differently. We have to look at that in the future. We have to post a score that you can defend, and some of the best teams do that very consistently.”

He also speaks about  Varun Chakravarthy

“Varun Chakravarthy was a massive idea in the auction so that we didn’t have to play a foreign spinner. Auctions are very unpredictable. Many teams have done well because they have retained about 5 players. I would like to bring forward the vision for a franchise going forward. Mike Hesson has done a fantastic job, to be honest, and I aim to bring a good work ethic coming into the leadership role,” Ashwin added.
