Kings XI Punjab, owned by Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, has changed its name and will be called Punjab Kings team in the next season of Indian Premier League. Kings XI Punjab is one of the eight IPL teams that played in the UAE last season.
A BCCI source said, “The team was thinking of changing the name for a long time and felt it would be right to do it before this IPL. It is not a sudden decision. ‘
The team of Mohit Burman, Ness Wadia, Preity Zinta and Karan Paul has not been able to win the IPL even once. The team was runner-up once and finished third once. The next IPL will start in April and the auction for the same is scheduled on Thursday.
