Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) are at 153 for two after 15 overs against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Glenn Maxwell is batting on 66 and David Miller is on 47. This is Match 29 in IPL 7 and is being played at Cuttack. Mandeep Singh and Virender Sehwag are the batsmen to have been dismissed. Chennai captain MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bowl. Mandeep Singh and Murali Karthik came in for Cheteshwar Pujara and Lakshmipathy Balaji in the Punjab line-up. Chennai have gone in with an unchanged side.

 

Smith bowled the 10th over and Maxwell decided to let loose. He played a short-armed jab to a length delivery over the mid-wicket fielder for a four. Ravichandran Ashwin was brought into the attack only in the 11th over. Maxwell slog-swept a full delivery for a six behind square on the leg side. The next delivery was a low full-toss and Maxwell hit the ball high over deep backward square-leg for another six. Rattled by the back-to-back sixes, Ashwin then bowled two wides on the trot.

 

Jadeja bowled a flat delivery, but Miller came down the track and hammered the ball down the ground for a big six. That brought up the 50-run partnership between Maxwell and Miller. Maxwell then got an outside edge to a pull shot and got a four towards third-man. Ashwin’s first over yielded 17 runs. His second over was taken for 14 runs off the first three deliveries. Maxwell smashed one six and two fours. The fifth delivery was slog-swept for a six over deep mid-wicket. That brought him his half-century.

 

Maxwell then struck a length delivery off Pandey for a six over deep mid-wicket. Miller then swung his bat at a low full-toss and got an outside-edge. The ball raced away for a four through third-man. Maxwell then pulled the last ball of the 14th over for a four towards wide long-on. Miller then sliced a full delivery over short third-man for a four off Jadeja. Miller then played a lofted cover-drive for a six on the last ball of the 15th over.
