Kings XI Punjab will be known as Punjab Kings in this season of IPL, as they have formally changed the team name ahead of the Indian Premier League auction.
On Wednesday the franchisee made an official statement saying : “We are much more than a team, but a family which has come together and built a connect with our fans through our relentless hard work. The new brand logo and name are an extension to our undying spirit of fighting against all odds and celebrating the true spirit of Punjab.”
The franchisee, Owned by actress Preity Zinta, Ness Wadia and Mohit Burman has still not won a single IPL Title and this move is suggested to give the team a new look and feel. And if rumours are to be believed this has been done at the behest of celebrity astro-numerologist Sanjay B Jumani.
