Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) are at 132 for three after 15 overs against Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 on April 20. Cheteshwar Pujara is batting on 27 and David Miller is on four. Glenn Maxwell was dismissed for 89. Punjab are chasing a massive target of 192 in Match 7 of IPL 7.

Maxwell played the reverse-sweep three times in the 11th over bowled by Rajat Bhatia and got three fours on the off side. He reached his half-century in that over. This is his second consecutive fifty in IPL 2014. Kulkarni tried to test Maxwell with a short delivery. But he does not have much pace and Maxwell played the upper cut and got a four in front of short third-man. Maxwell then struck three more fours in that 12th over bowled by Kulkarni.

The carnage continued as Maxwell hit a lofted drive off Bhatia high over long-off for a six. That made Bhatia bowl a slower delivery down the leg side and Maxwell swiped it away for a six over deep square-leg. The match almost turned into a situation where the fielders became spectators and the spectators turned into fielders. The luck also did not favour Rajasthan as Richardson’s slower delivery took an inside edge off Pujara’s bat and missed the stumps on its way for a four behind.

But that luck changed as Maxwell mistimed a lofted drive off Richardson and got caught by Steven Smith. He was out for 89 off 45 deliveries with eight fours and six sixes.

Earlier, Rajasthan amassed a total of 191 for five in their 20 overs after Bailey had sent them into bat. Sanju Samson top-scored with 52 off 34 deliveries. He struck three fours and four sixes. Captain Shane Watson scored 50 off 29 deliveries. He hit five fours and three sixes. The belligerent partnership was worth 74 runs with a run-rate of 10.57.
