Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will face Hobart Hurricanes in the second match of Champions League Twenty 20 (CLT20) at Mohali on Thursday. Both teams reached the finals of their domestic T20 tournaments, with KXIP losing out to Kolkata Knight Riders and Hobart Hurricanes losing out to Perth Scorchers in the finals. George Bailey, who had led Hobart in the Big Bash League, has opted to play for KXIP and his absence will be missed by the Australian T20 side.

Maxwell’s magic in this year’s IPL lifted the whole team, and he’ll definitely be a key player for them. KXIP’s bowling doesn’t have the same firepower, and no one except Mitchell Johnson (who isn’t so great at T20 cricket) can instil fear in the minds of the batsman. However, youngsters like Sandeep Sharma, Karanveer Singh and Rishi Dhawan bowled with a lot of heart and their determination made up for the lack of big names in their line-up.
