Big names don't matter if you can't deliver when it is needed. Royal Challengers Bangalore is probably the best example this season. Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh have done little justice to their reputation in terms of runs scored in Indian Premier League this year. Kings XI Punjab, on the contrary, have proved how names don't matter, what works best is team-work.
Of the six top totals in the IPL this year, Kings XI Punjab have scored five of them. Punjab's winning total of 198 for eight on Friday night at Chinnaswamy Stadium was the highest by any team against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2014. The total was a combined effort of KXIP's top batsmen: Virender Sehwag, Glenn Maxwell, David Miller and of course, Mandeep Singh and Mitchell Johnson.
