Maxwell and Miller script second incredible chase


One could have termed the chase of 205 by KXIP the other day against CSK as “one of those days” and forget it easily, but KXIP batsmen did it again and that too with the same conviction is just an amazing thing. The same pair of Maxwell and Miller this time made another mockery of a slightly thin target of 191 posted by RR after heroics by their own Samson and Watson. Maxwell is not only unstoppable at this time but he is just amazing, to say the least, and the only thing he can’t do is to convert those near hundreds into full ones. KXIP must do well in bowling because Maxwell may have a failure just around the corner.
