Kings XI Punjab put up a clinical performance against the table-toppers Delhi Capitals and registered their fourth win of the season. Winning skipper KL Rahul was all praises for his team especially the all-rounder Glenn Maxwell.
The Australian all rounder took 1/31 in his spell of four overs with the ball and also scored 32 runs off 24 balls during the chase.
“Glenn has been batting well in the nets. He is a great team man and we know the balance he brings to the table. The talk before the last couple of games was to beat two teams were at the top of the points table” Rahul said.
Both Pooran and Maxwell play a quintessential knock and put up a partnership of 69 runs for the sixth wicket. They also ensured the side’s victory by 5 wickets and also the two points from the win to sit at 5th place in the points table.
The duo covered all corners in the side’s middle-order batting which they were lacking in the previous matches and lost them.
“I couldn’t sleep after the last game. We could have finished it before and not allowed it to go into the super over. The game reminds us to stay humble. We would want to take the momentum forward and take it one game at a time” he added.
Kings XI Punjab will now prepare to face Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next matchup in the double header weekend in Dubai on October 24.
