IPL 7: Glenn Maxwell's Explosive 95-Run Knock Sets The Tone For Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab's Glenn Maxwell took the attack to the opposition, slamming 95 off 43 balls as his team chased down a mammoth 206-run target against the Chennai Super Kings with seven balls to spare and six wickets remaining.

The enthusiastic crowd in Abu Dhabi witnessed Glenn Maxwell make an explosive transition from being a bench warmer to a game changer in the Indian Premier League on Friday as he fell agonizingly short of slamming the first century of IPL 2014. Chasing 206, Kings XI Punjab were in dire straits, having lost three early wickets. However, Maxwell combined with David Miller -- one of the two players retained by Kings XI Punjab -- to first steer Punjab out of trouble and then put them on track to cause a massive upset, as they chased down 206 with seven balls to spare and six wickets remaining in the end.
