Weaknesses 

Adjustment- Kings XI Punjab barely put a foot wrong in the auction and seemed to cover all basis but after getting 13 new players into the squad and a new Coach in New Zeland’s Mike Hesson the group will naturally take some time to adjust. The onus will be on Mike Hesson who is generally a very calm and collected coach to bring all these different personalities and talent together under one roof in hopes to get the best out of them.
