The first owners of the franchise included Preity Zinta, Karan Paul (Apeejay Surendera Group) and Mohit Burman (Dabur). The group paid a total of $76 million to acquire the franchise. On 10 October 2010 the franchise agreement of Kings eleven was terminated by the IPL committee along with Rajasthan Royals due to their disputes.
2008 IPL Season
The tournament got off to a slow start for the Kings XI, with the team losing their first two games. However, despite losing Australians Brett Lee and Simon Katich (who were committed to tour the West Indies with Australia), the team found its groove. Powered by their balanced bowling lineup and effective top order, the team won 9 of its next 10 matches, clinching a birth in the semi-final. In the semi-final, their run in the tournament came to an end with a comprehensive 9 wicket loss to the Chennai Super Kings.
Many credit the team for unearthing arguably the biggest find of the tournament in Shaun Marsh. The opener from Western Australia was looked over in both IPL player auctions and was signed by the franchise on 9 April. He finished the tournament the highest run scorer with an average of 68.44 and a strike rate of 139.68 in 11 innings. His innings included 1 century and 5 half-centuries.
On top of their strong results, the franchise found itself in the headlines for issues off the field as well. It was alleged that cheerleaders Ellesha Newton and Sherinne Anderson—both of whom are of African lineage—were denied access to the PCA Stadium due to the colour of their skin. Wizcraft International Entertainment, the event management firm hired by the team, denied the allegation and began proceedings on a defamation lawsuit against the organization who represented the two individuals.
Dispute with Punjab Police
The Punjab Police sought compensation in exchange for providing security during IPL matches at the PCA Stadium. The issue was that neither the Punjab Cricket Association, nor the franchise owners were willing to pay the amount being demanded. The dispute reached a boiling point on 23 May during the Kings XI match against the Deccan Chargers, where it was alleged that team co-owner Ness Wadia was engaged in a verbal dispute with Mohali Senior Superintendent of Police, RS Khatra. Wadia eventually filed an official complaint against Khatra, contending that he was accused of stealing alcohol and team merchandise, as well as granting entrance to unauthorized personnel in the stadium. Following this event, the Punjab Police threatened to provide no security for the Kings XI's final home match, unless they were paid the sum they demanded.
Finishing as semi-finalists last year, The Kings XI Punjab started with enormous ambitions to win the trophy. Their ambitions were supported by their new sponsors Emirates Airlines. With two available slots to fill The Punjab Kings made bids on Jerome Taylor and Yusuf Abdulla at the second IPL auctions.
The team took a hit as most of their Australian cricketers were not available. The team's pace department did not have much fire in them after Jerome Taylor backed out at the last minute with a fresh injury.
The Punjab Kings started badly losing to the Delhi Daredevils and the Kolkata Knight Riders, however got back to form by beating the Royal Challengers, Rajasthan Royals and the Mumbai Indians. Then the team witnessed a roller-coaster ride in their next eight matches with 4 wins and 4 losses. The team's semi-final hopes were crushed after losing to the Chennai Super Kings in their last match.
Kings XI Punjab lost six matches to Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Daredevils, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Deccan Chargers, Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians but managed to win a match against Chennai Super Kings when the scores were level and the match went to a Super Over. Kings XI Punjab were boosted by the return of Brett Lee against Kolkata, but he was not at his best. Shaun Marsh returned in the match against Mumbai Indians. Despite of his good performance, which included a half century, the team lost the match.
They ended in last position.

Expulsion From the IPL and return
Following the controversy surrounding the BCCI and Lalit Modi the Indian Premier League announced that it had terminated the franchise contracts of Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals. It also sent a notice to the Kochi IPL Team to sort out its finances or face termination. The teams announced that they would take whatever legal action possible to remain in the Indian Premier League  Initially the team tried to negotiate a solution with the league but when that couldn't be reached they decided to file a case in Mumbai High Court accusing the IPL off getting rid of two teams so that when the bidding process starts for the 2012 IPL season the contract would be given to a more lucrative bidder 
A division bench of Hon. High Court of Mumbai has upheld the injunction order passed on by Hon. Justice Vajifdar of Mumbai High court. This order stays till the arbitrator, chosen by mutual consent of BCCI and Kings XI Punjab settles the issue. The team is allowed to take part in the player's auction to be held on 8th & 9 January post fulfillment of certain financial clauses imposed by Hon. Justice Vajifdar. The participation of Kings XI Punjab looks a virtual certainty for IPL 2011. And became even more certain when they bought a full-strength team with Michael Bevan as coach and Adam Gilchrist appointed as captain
