After a consecutive three match defeat, the Punjab Kings XI just managed to win a match thriller after a tie of the Super Over against the Chennai Super Kings.
The Sangakkara led Punjab team has just found winning ways and are in high spirits. With the win, to boast the team’s spirit, Brett Lee and Shaun Marsh have arrived in India to join the team.
Just a day before the IPL kicked of, Brett Lee went back to Australia to treat his elbow injury.
Marsh scored 616 runs in IPL 1- 2008 and was the top scorer in the tournament while Lee led the team attack in both 2008 and 2009.
Senior Vice President of KXIP told:-

He received huge fans from all over the cricket areas. On an average, he got 150,000 crowds a day. That is superb for one who just covered the IPL with a sub domain.
Now, he is going to launch a book related to IPL which will be in markets before the IPL starts.
The Blogger told he will reveal his identity at the end of the tournament but disappointed his fans by just giving them a shadow video. Here is the video-
