New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab skipper looked at his absolute best once against Mumbai Indians, smashing boundaries all around the Holkar Stadium in his 18-ball cameo which produced 40 runs.
Maxwell had failed to fire in the previous three matches, all of which ended in a defeat to Punjab.

Maxwell hit Mitchell McClenaghan for 6,6,4,4,6 in five consecutive balls (including a no ball), which makes it 26 off 4 legal deliveries.
The pick of the batsmen for Punjab, however, remains opener Hashim Amla who scored unbeaten 60- ball 104 powered Kings XI Punjab to a formidable 198 for four against Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match.
Sent into bat, Amla top-scored for Kings XI Punjab with his maiden T20 century, while skipper Glenn Maxwell smashed his way to 40 off just 18 balls, to help KXIP put a huge total on board.
Kings XI Punjab were off to a good start with Amla adding 46 runs for the first wicket with Shaun Marsh (26).
But the partnership that really boosted KXIP's run rate was the one between Amla and Maxwell, the duo scoring 83 for the third wicket in 5.3 overs at a staggering rate of 15.09.
