Glenn Maxwell vs Ravichandran Ashwin could well determine fate of contest

Glenn Maxwell needs to come back to form and his battle with Ravichandran Ashwin could well have an impact on Kings XI Punjab’s Qualifier 2 against Chennai Super Kings, writes Nishad Pai Vaidya.

Kings XI Punjab face their biggest test in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 as they take on a confident Chennai Super Kings. Though Punjab topped the league stage and trounced Chennai in both their encounters this season, the MS Dhoni-led side has more experience in knockout games and are all the more dangerous in the playoffs. Dominating the league is one thing, but to be competing in the playoffs needs something more. Thus, Glenn Maxwell, the man who dominated Chennai in the two previous games, would be crucial coming into this game.

Following a brilliant start to the IPL 2014, Maxwell’s form has tapered off a bit. Leg-spinners have troubled him in the latter half and he hasn’t been as prolific as he was earlier. Punjab do need his brilliance to trounce Chennai and a lot would also depend on his clash with the off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. Maxwell has been very successful against Ashwin and has attacked him well this IPL. With the ball normally coming into him, Maxwell goes for the free swing and whacks it towards the leg-side.
