TATA Motors has officially confirmed that it’s heavy duty trucks range, Tata Motors Prima has chosen to be the official sponsors of the Kings XI Punjab in the upcoming season 8 of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Tata Motors affirmed that this association will strengthen the brand’s blossoming relationship with the fancied league that laid it’s foundation in IPL-7.
The Kings XI Punjab had a meek start to the Indian Premier League right from it’s very first edition and they were not able to leave an exceptionally consistency mark with their performances till season 7 barring a few occasions, despite having the services of World Class greats like Adam Gilchrist, Yuvraj Singh and many more enticing names in the earlier seasons of the league who indubitably had the capability of marauding and single handedly manhandling any formidable bowling attack in the world when it was their day.
But last season, in IPL 7, we witnessed a spectacular turn around of events from the performances of the Punjab team, majestically defeating every side of the league in the most blistering possible fashion & thus, easily securing a much demanded place in the final. The Kings XI side was desperately craving to feast on their first ever deserving season trophy, but as destiny played it’s cruel part in the finals, the opponents, KKR grabbed the IPL title right from the jaws of KXIP after successfully chasing down a mammoth total of a 200+ runs. Thanks to the spectacular innings of Manish Pandey fired under immense pressure which made Wridhimaan Saha’s breathtaking centurion knock go in vain.
The runners up KXIP must be looking to settle their score in the coming season of IPl & set the demons of the past aside. They are all set to kick off their season on April 8, 2015 against the Rajasthan Royals at MCA International Stadium, Pune.
