KXIP vs GL: Sensational Hashim Amla slams second hundred in IPL 2017
May 08, 2017, 16:06
Amla quashed the general perception that he can not score fast and slammed two centuries in the ongoing edition of the IPL, but his team has let him down on both the occasions. In Pics: How Gujarat beat Punjab in a thrilling finishThe 34-year-old veteran of 104 Tests, who has a triple ton to his credit, said every now and then when a batsman, who is not known for lusty hitting, scores big in T20 cricket, such talks crop up. Scoring a blistering 74 off 39, the West Indian helped the already eliminated Gujarat Lions to a six-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab.
Smith followed him back to the pavilion a couple of overs later when he was dismissed by Glenn Maxwell.
Hashim Amla's second century of the season went in vain as Gujarat chased down 190 in the final over and pushed KXIP to a point from where they need to win all their remaining matches to stay alive in the Playoff race.
After being put into bat, Punjab lost Martin Guptill [2 off 5 balls] in the first over, but Amla and Shaun Marsh [58 off 43 balls] managed to put on a century stand to give a brilliant platform for the hosts. "(But) still a good season for the youngsters", he said. Karthik pointed out that with 23 runs required off 11 balls, he had to take the risk.
Karthik, Smith's teammate at GL, launched Varun Aaron for a six and a four in the penultimate over to calm down the nerves in the visitors' camp.
Gurkeerat Singh Mann and David Miller dropped a few easy catches that dearly cost the home side in the end. When told that many think T20 cricket is all about hitting fours and sixes nearly every ball, Amla said the format forced every player to get a way out to "maximise each ball".
Marsh breezed to 58 before he was caught at long-on by fellow Australian Aaron Finch, in the process giving licence to Amla to up the ante.
Smith, Amla's counterpart, had not scored a fifty in 10 IPL innings and, before this game, had managed only 103 runs in nine innings this season, with single-digit scores in his last six innings. He collected 24 runs off the next seven balls he faced; he was particularly severe on Basil Thampi, who he hit for a six and two consecutive boundaries in the seventeenth over. Took a bit of time to adjust, got the partnership going with Shaun Marsh. But more often than not, it is their inexperienced bowling unit which has cost the side dearly.
Gujarat pacers Thampi, Pradeep Sangwan and Dhawal Kulkarni picked up a wicket each.
