Here are five aspects that went wrong for Kings XI in the high-scoring contest. You will find many examples of better cricketers who have been successful in T20 cricket without necessarily looking agricultural, as they say.

History repeated on Sunday as Amla caressed his way to 104 from 60 balls in Kings XI's 3-189, a total that was tracked down by Gujarat with two balls to spare. "Hence, I don't think it would be that big an issue", Amla told PTI here. I am always looking to get good scores for my team. "Unfortunately, it did not go in our favour".

It was an exciting match that could have gone either way. "(But) still a good season for the youngsters", he said. And his teammates did not disappoint him.

The 91-run stand finally ended when T Natarajan (1-32) had Kishan caught at deep midwicket and in the next 10 deliveries, both Smith and Suresh Raina (39) smashed two sixes and three boundaries combined to ease the required run rate. "But you've got to give credit to Gujarat, in the way they came out and they played so positively and managed to kind of negate whatever advantage we had earlier on", Amla said.

Amla, known for his classic batting and being more of a player for the Test fold, has been proving his critics wrong as he continues his onslaught in the shortest format of the game.

This was his second hundred in the IPL.

National Day of Prayer
Roberts prayed for the nation, with hope that those elected would work for the nation, and for the people. I think the prayers were honest and reflected the heart of God. "We desperately need his help".

Amla realised that the ball had brushed his willow and without an appeal from the bowler or the wicket- keeper, like a true sportsperson walked off the field. Marsh departed in the 16th over after a fine innings.

Marsh made 58 runs with six boundaries studding his 43ball knock. The likes of Shardul Thakur, James Faulkner, Basil Thampi and Ravindra Jadeja have failed to live upto the expectations of the side. Amla is also a great ambassador of the game, who has always played the game in right spirit.

The second half was trundling along at the same, fairly pedestrian pace before two goals in the space of three minutes dropped victory into Arsenal s lap.

Man-of-the-match, Smith, who struck a whirlwind 74 up the order, said overall he was disappointed with his performances this season. Pradeep Sangwan (1-28) bowled a brilliant first over where he conceded just two runs and snared Martin Guptill (2). Gurkeerat was again at wrong towards the end as he dropped Raina this time.

From here on, it will be a Herculean task for Kings XI to qualify for the play-offs as they not only will have to win their remaining three games but their fate will also depend on the outcome of other games.
