Glenn Maxwell stole the show once again as the Kings XI Punjab made it three wins on the spin in the Indian Premier League with a resounding 72-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Batting first, Kings XI crashed 193-6 in their 20 overs with Maxwell posting a 43-ball 95.

In response, the Sunrisers never got going and fell well short of the total, eventually dismissed in the final over for 121.

Punjab occupy the top spot in the table after the victory while the winless Sunrisers are at the foot of the table.

There seemed like precious little Hyderabad could do against Maxwell.

He came in at 51-1 after a breezy Virender Sehwag cameo of 30 from 22 balls and proceeded to crash the ball to all parts. 

There were nine maximums in his 95, which equalled his Twenty20 best, set just two matches ago.

There wasn't a great deal else from the team—Cheteshwar Pujara anchored the knock with 35 from 32 balls—but with Maxwell flying, there didn't need to be.

Lakshmipathy Balaji impressed with the ball as his accurate seam bowling prising out dangerous Australian batsmen Aaron Finch and David Warner in the same over. He ended up with four wickets overall, becoming the top wicket-taker so far in IPL 7.

With Sunrisers captain Shikhar Dhawan also in the hutch, the stuffing was knocked out of the chase before it ever truly began.

Lokesh Rahul managed a run-a-ball 27 and Darren Sammy crunched a huge six in a 11-ball 15, but the wickets continued to fall.

The Kings XI Punjab bowling is far from perfect—Mitchell Johnson has been inconsistent so far while the rest of the line-up lacks star quality—but with such batting firepower, they have been irresistible so far.
