Bailey, Maxwell lead Kings XI Punjab to fifth highest IPL score in 44-run win over CSK
Australian batsmen Glenn Maxwell and George Bailey have led the Kings X1 Punjab to the fifth highest score in the Indian Premier League (IPL) during a 44-run victory over Chennai Super Kings on Wednesday at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack.
Maxwell's 90 off 38 balls against Chennai took him to 435 runs for the tournament after just seven matches and he, along with Bailey, Virender Sehwag and David Miller tore the Chennai Super Kings attack apart as they raced to 4-231 from their 20 overs.
According to News.com.au, although CSK put up a spirited reply but they could not quite produce the batting heroics when required, with India Test spinner Ravi Ashwin conceding 38 off two overs, including 21 in the 13th over.
The report mentioned that South Africa T20 captain Faf Du Plessis blasted 52 off 25 balls but key contributors Brendan McCullum and Suresh Raina failed to fire and Chennai fell 44 runs short.
Meanwhile, former India opener Gautam Gambhir found top form as Kolkata Knight Riders proved too strong for Kevin Pietersen's Delhi Daredevils in the first match of the doubleheader, the report added.
