Maxwell did not perform for Kings XI Punjab, says Sehwag

"The toss had something to do with it", said Maxwell as Kings XI finished at No. 5 with 14 points after winning seven matches and losing seven.

Steve Smith and co. have now set up a derby date with Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 1.

Their departures saw four wickets fall for 22 runs in the space of 24 deliveries to leave Mumbai stumbling on 121 for four in the 13th over.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat against Delhi Daredevils in an inconsequential contest of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Ferozeshah Kotla here on Sunday. In their last four matches, they have scored at 11.45 per over and lost only eight wickets. The visitors, however, still need to work on their bowling despite the pace duo of Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma bowling some good overs at the death.

"It's well known that when Maxwell gets going, he's brilliant". The left-armer has only appeared three times this season but came back into the side for the KKR clash on Saturday and his experience could be looked upon favourably by the Indians, who are missing Englishman Chris Woakes. "But all the Indian players are doing well", Rahane had said after their comprehensive victory over Kings XI Punjab on Sunday which also sealed their playoff place.

"Even Marsh, his role was to play till 10-12 overs, but the way he got out was disappointing and then Maxwell and Morgan, these are the experienced players..."

"Yes, we will definitely miss Stokesy because he has done really well for us in both batting and bowling as well as in fielding".

There was comparative lull for a couple of overs before Maxwell cut loose with two consecutive sixes off Kuldeep Yadav in the 16th over.

Before this, the highest total this season was 214 for 3 against Gujarat Lions.

The side has posted a total of 230 or above for the third time in all the 10 season of IPL. Saha played one (good) innings, Manan Vohra played one innings but apart from that none of the others played responsibly.

Skipper Maxwell joined in as he struck two massive sixes, one over long on off and other over extra cover off Karn with Punjab completing 100 in just 8 overs.

The Australian took Harbhajan Singh for three sixes in a brutal opening over from the veteran spinner, but was bowled just shy of a half-century, attempting to flick Jasprit Bumrah behind square.
