Please look at the following headline that I don't understand. Please tell me what fight fading chances means.

Kings XI Punjab fight fading chances to stay alive

Does 'fight fading chances' make sense at all?

  • When I look at the linked source, the headline is "Kings XI's chances to stay alive fading", which makes a lot more sense. – ColleenV Nov 24 '16 at 13:52

Fading means that as time goes on, the chance of staying alive gets smaller and smaller. Despite this worsening situation, the king (s) is/are fighting for life.

Sure. fight is a verb here.

What are they fighting? Fading chances.

They are trying to improve their chances to not be eliminated (to stay alive).
