bioling pt is due to diff in the raeson for exlanation.
in case of alkali metal the energy bindng the atom in the crystal lattice decrease thus bioling pt.in other words decrease in metallic bond strength.
in case of noble metal these are held by weak intermolecular force of attraction which increases down the group,thus increasing bioling pt.

thanks and regrds
