IPL-10: Punjab eye desperate win against Gujarat


Kings XI Punjab: Glenn Maxwell (captain), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Hashim Amla, Shaun Marsh, Darren Sammy, Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper), Nikhil Naik, Ishant Sharma, Armaan Jaffer, Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Arman Jaffer, Anureet Singh, Mohit Sharma, KC Cariappa, Pradeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, T Natrajan, Matt Henry, Varun Aaron, Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Gurkeerat Mann, Rahul Tewatia.

For KXIP, Sandeep Sharma was impressive yet again returning figures of 2-29, while Maxwell and Natarajan (who bowled a sloppy final over) chipped in with a wicket each. His partnership of 125 with Marsh set the tone for a brisk finish, which included 66 runs off the last five overs.

Marsh breezed to 58 before he was caught at long-on by fellow Australian Aaron Finch, in the process giving licence to Amla to up the ante.

Amla brought up his fifty off 35 balls with the help of four boundaries and one six, while Marsh's half century came off 37 balls during which he struck five fours. Amla, thus, became the second batsman after Virat Kohli to register two centuries in a single IPL season. Every ball seemed like either four or a six, which is quite entertaining.

When asked about his style of play, he said that he prefers playing good cricketing shots. Karthik was on strike and he scored three runs off the first ball.

#SaltWaterChallenge: Palestinian campaign to support hunger strikers goes viral
Palestinian detainees complain that they have been subjected to assault and torture at Israeli prisons. On Sunday, Palestinian churches were expected to ring bells in solidarity with the hunger strikers.

He lauded openers Dwayne Smith and Ishan Kishan for setting the platform for the comfortable win. The Lions might have sensed an opportunity to pull things back when the partnership was broken, but Amla did not allow the Lions bowlers to dictate terms.

History repeated on Sunday as Amla caressed his way to 104 from 60 balls in Kings XI's 3-189, a total that was tracked down by Gujarat with two balls to spare.

Wenger overcame Mourinho's Chelsea in the 2015 Community Shield, but this was the first time he had got the better of his old foe with league points at stake. Glenn Maxwell's 11-ball 20 - which contained two hits over the fence - was the only other notable score for KXIP.

His 5th boundary of the innings, which came off Basil Thampi's bowling in the 17th over, was a subject of discussion.

Hashim Amla's second century of the season went in vain as Gujarat chased down 190 in the final over and pushed KXIP to a point from where they need to win all their remaining matches to stay alive in the Playoff race. Sangwan and Thampi were the other wicket-takers.
