It was Hashim Amla's maiden ton in IPL which was a mixture of some brilliant hard-hitting shots and some classic cricketing shots.
Maxwell, on the other hand, was all firepower and power hitting. He had hit Mumbai Indian's (MI) Mitchell McClenaghan for 28 runs in a single over which turned the proceedings in Punjab's favour.
It was a much-needed knock from South African opener Amla which guided KXIP to the driver's seat in the game.
