Same again from Kings XI

Glenn Maxwell and David Miller produced a repeat performance to lead Kings XI Punjab to their second win in this season's Indian Premier League.

The Kings XI chased down a target of 192 with eight deliveries to spare for a seven-wicket victory over Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah.

Maxwell set up the successful pursuit with a 45-ball 89 and Miller saw the job through with 51 not out from 19 deliveries, finishing the contest in the penultimate over with his sixth six.

The duo had performed similar roles in the Kings XI's season-opening victory over Chennai Super Kings two days earlier, Maxwell making 95 and Miller 54 not out to reach a target of 206 on that occasion.

Rajasthan had earlier made 191-5 after being asked to bat, Sanju Samson (52) and skipper Shane Watson (50) putting on a 74-run stand for the third wicket.
