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.

Skipper Glenn Maxwell cleared the fence twice during his unbeaten cameo of 20 from 11 balls as the Kings XI ended with 189-3 in their 20 overs. His partnership of 125 with Marsh set the tone for a brisk finish, which included 66 runs off the last five overs.

KXIP: Glenn Maxwell (captain), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Hashim Amla, Shaun Marsh, Darren Sammy, Wriddhiman Saha, Nikhil Naik, Ishant Sharma, Armaan Jaffer, Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Arman Jaffer, Anureet Singh, Mohit Sharma, KC Cariappa, Pradeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, T. Natrajan, Matt Henry, Varun Aaron, Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Gurkeerat Mann, Rahul Tewatia. "(But) still a good season for the youngsters", Suresh Raina said after the win.

Sangwan struck in the very first over with a chest high-short ball to Gujarat opener Martin Guptill on the off stump line.

But, the efforts of Amla gone in vain after losing the match.

With Amla batting fluently, Shaun Marsh had the time to get his eye in.
