Captain Ravichandran Ashwin of Kings XI Punjab was brought over to the drummer’s to do the customary bhangra dance after Kings XI Punjab’s powerful victory over Rajasthan Royals in Mohali.
KXIP was not doing so great in the previous matches, however, Ashwin and opener KL Rahul played pivotal roles to help KXIP bounce back after two successive defeats.
Rahul hit a 47-ball 52, while Ashwin smashed 17 off four balls in the last over and then took two crucial wickets as KXIP recorded their fifth gracious win in this IPL.
KXIP, with five wins out of the nine matches they played, have risen to fourth spot now. They will next battle the Delhi Capitals on saturday.
Having been a team of Punjab, they significant celebration or expression of happiness and success, is by dancing and signing the fol Bhangra dance. With every win, it has become a ritual of sorts for the Kings XI Punjab players to do the bhangra after every win on their home ground and Ashwin had to do the same at the IS Bindra stadium. Ashwin was accompanied by Sonu Sood, who was also seen shaking legs on the Bhangra tunes.
The Team was in High Spirits, given their excellent performance and smashing last over of Ashwin. Indeed a moment to shake a leg on the Bhangra tune and express joy and success.
