RAJKOT: Hashim Amla made a sublime half-century as Kings XI Punjab defeated Gujarat Lions by 26 runs in an Indian Premier League match, here today.
      
Amla hit 65 off 40 balls with nine boundaries and two sixes to set the platform while Axar Patel 34-run cameo off 17 balls enabled Kings XI Punjab to reach a competitive 188 for seven after being sent into bat.
     
Shaun Marsh (30 off 24 balls) and Glenn Maxwell (31 off 18 balls) also made useful contributions.
     
For Lions, Tye (2/35) and Jadeja (1/32) had the best figures. Basil Thampi (0/44) was punished for erring in length.
     
Chasing the target, Dinesh Karthik unbeaten 58 off 44 balls went in vain as Kings XI produced a fine bowling effort to restrict Gujarat Lions to 162 for seven.
    
KC Cariappa (2/24), Axar Patel (2/36) and Sandeep Sharma (2/40) picked up two wickets apiece for Kings XI Punjab.
