New Delhi: In a surprise move, Kings XI Punjab hit the field for Match 39 against Royal Challengers Bangalore without their swashbuckling batsman Glenn Maxwell.
The Australian hasn't been in the best of form lately, and speculations were rife that he was dropped from the playing XI.
However, after his team's one-run loss against Virat Kohli and his boys, Maxwell took to Twitter to say that he was hoping to recover from an injury for next game.
Gut wrenching loss for the guys tonight! Played their hearts out all night. Hopefully I can recover from this injury for next game! #kingsxi
