Kings XI Punjab are on a winning spree. They have played two matches so far in the 10the edition of the Indian Premier League and won both.

After winning their opening match against Rising Pune Supergiant by 6 wickets, KXIP dished out a superb allround performance to thrash Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight wickets, despite a scintillating knock by comeback man AB de Villiers on Monday.

But, what is the secret behind KXIP's winning run.

Former India cricketer and KXIP's director (cricket operations), Sehwag, revealed the secret code after team's second back-to-back win on Monday.

"Home-RCB ✔. Inspite of Mr360 last 18balls-6,1,0,6,1,6,2, 6,0,4,6,6,0, 1,1,0,6,6

KXIP rode on a solid batting performance by Hashim Amla and skipper Glenn Maxwell to thrash RCB by eight wickets at the Holkar Stadium.

Chasing a 149-run target, Punjab were boosted by an unbeaten half-century by experienced opener Amla and a power-packed innings by Maxwell lower down the order and crossed the line with 33 balls to spare.
