October 18, Sunday was a historic day in cricket as we got to see three Super Overs in one tournament in one day. IPL 2020 reached the peak of excitement as much as many fans just wished it to be the final day of this season. The first game played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad ended in a tie, resulting in a Super Over in which Lockie Ferguson’s incredible bowling display led his team to victory.

The second match of the day, though, was out of the world. Played between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab, the match saw two Super Overs to finally give a winner. One Super Over Over in a day is already crazy enough, but having three of them back to back, was something no cricket fan would have expected. Adding to the crazy story is the fact that the last time the two met a few weeks ago, it was also decided in the Super Over. MI had won on the occasion, but it was KXIP who did the unthinkable this time.

In MI vs KXIP, batting first Mumbai Indians put up a total of 176 runs, with help of Quinton de Kock’s half century (53 runs off 43 balls) knock and superb finishing strikes by Kieron Pollard (34 runs off 12 balls) and Nathan Coulter-Nile (24 runs off 12 balls). For KXIP, KL Rahul again showed a masterclass performance, scoring 77 runs off 51 balls. They however, could not cross the finishing line as they got stuck at 176, tying the match.

What followed was a Super Over, in which MI’s Jasprit Bumrah conceded just 5 runs. The match looked out of KXIP’s hands. But then Mohammed Shami equalled Bumrah’s performance and restricted MI to 5 runs. A tie again! In the second Super Over, chasing a target of 12 runs, KXIP finished claiming the victory in 4 balls, thanks to Chris Gayle’s six on the first ball, followed by Mayank Agarwal’s consecutive boundaries off third and fourth delivery. This was only the third and much needed victory of KXIP in IPL 2020.
