5 memorable moments from KXIP vs GL that don’t fade away
Kings XI Punjab put up a good total, but misfields and dropped catches led to their loss against Gujarat Lions.
The Kings XI Punjab were on a winning run that had the Sunrisers Hyderabad nervous. However, against Gujarat Lions tonight, the winning streak came to an end as Suresh Raina and co. secured a relatively easy 6-wicket win.
A century from Hashim Amla helped Kings XI Punjab put up a competitive target of 190 runs for the Gujarat Lions to chase. In response, some great batting from Dwayne Smith and the rest of the batsmen helped them win the game with two balls to spare.
Here are 5 memorable moments from the match that don't fade away, quite like the Axe Signature range of body perfumes:
Hashim Amla’s century
As Harsha Bhogle said, ‘is there anything he can’t do with a cricket bat?’ The only thing we can think of is: Failing to score runs. The South African opener just can’t seem to stop scoring runs whenever he is on the pitch and tonight’s game was just another display of his brilliance.
Hashim Amla delivered a performance of the highest calibre when his team needed it. The bearded genius scored 104 runs from just 60 balls and reached his century by hitting a six which would have made Virender Sehwag proud.
