The article speaks about Maxwell bravery once again. He made the great total of 205 runs made by Sunrisers Hyderabad look very small. Kings Eleven Punjab leads the points table.
The most exciting team to watch in IPL 2014 had been Kings Eleven Punjab. If one of the reasons include their aggressive approach, the other reason is Glenn Maxwell. He alone makes a difference with other teams.
On 14th May, 2014, Sunrisers Hyderabad scored a big total of 205 runs in 20 overs. N Ojha scored 79 runs of 35 balls. He scored the runs hitting seven sixes and 4 boundaries. Shikhar Dhawan scored 45 runs of 37 balls and Warner scored 44 runs of 23 balls.
The huge total looked very small due to again the big hitters of Kings Eleven Punjab.
Instead of succumbing to the pressure of great target they launched counter attack.
M Vohra scored 47 runs of 20 balls with 5 fours and 2 sixes. Wriddhiman Saha scored 54 runs of 26 balls with 8 fours and 2 sixes. After pounding all the bowlers of Sunrisers Hyderabad including Bhubaneswar Kumar, Dale Steyn, Henriques and others, Maxwell came in to put the last pin in the coffin.
Maxwell scored 43 runs of 22 balls with 2 fours and 5 sixes. Once he got out but later it was found that it was a no ball. But the beauty of Maxwell had been the body language. His pounding of bowlers demoralized the teams one after the others. Even the teams which had put in formidable scores got non-plast.
After Maxwell got out the asking rate reduced down. Bailey and Miller easily brought victory for Kings Eleven Punjab. Bailey remained unbeaten with 35 runs of 19 balls with 2 fours and 3 sixes. Miller remained unbeaten with 24 runs of 24 balls with 1 four.
Kings Eleven Punjab with 16 points now heads the Points Table. They are certain to go to the semi-finals. But one thing is certain. The viewers of every stadium had started supporting Kings Eleven Punjab.
None of the batsmen in IPL history had created such storm, cyclone, tornado, the way Maxwell had done. He had outplayed the bravery of Chris Gayle, McCullum, Watson and other giants of the past. What he has given is only entertainment. He deserved the orange cap. Cricket experts feel that Maxwell, Miller and Bailey should reserve some of their ferocious batting for the knock out level. In the semi-finals and finals the team requires those super-human knocks. After destroying all the attacks of different teams if Kings Eleven Punjab dont win the IPL 2014 it will be a shock for everyone and Preity Zinta.
I have discussed the best of the best test players who are a part of my Test World XI of all time. The team consists of 11 players from India, Australia, Pakistan, Srilanka and West Indies..
In comparison to other sports, we're quick to classify NBA players as thugs when they fight but there's more to consider.
The article speaks about the heroics of Maxwell, Miller and Pujara in the IPL 2014 match of Kings Eleven Punjab versus Rajasthan Royals on 20th April, 2014..
I don't understand what this man is made of and what he eats. And I liked the word you used 'bravery'. It indeed needs a brave attempt to put flat sixes. But he has got out 2-3 times hitting flat sixes on the boundary. When he was with Mumbai, he didn't blosom as much as he is doing it now. Hats off. I watch Punjab matches only for Maxwell. I guess, he is not Maxwell, but he is Max'best'.reply 0
