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.

It was the second time Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab were facing off each other in the ongoing IPL 2020 and the proceedings were very similar to their first encounter. Once again, the two innings ended in a tie resulting in Super Over, only this time the climax was much more dramatic than last time and the winner was Kings XI Punjab. This latest encounter saw in fact not one but two Super Overs, as the first one resulted in a tie.


Batting first Mumbai Indians posted 176 runs on the board. KXIP equaled the total in 20 overs after Chris Jordan was run out in the last delivery trying to take the winning run. In the first Super Over, Jasprit Bumrah blew away KXIP’s batsmen with his measured bowling as he got Pooran and Rahul out, restricting KXIP to just 5. In response, Mohammed Shami also conceded only 5 runs, as he picked de Kock’s wicket on the last ball. Another Super Over followed. This time KXIP needed just four deliveries to chase MI’s 11 runs. Chris Gayle’s first-ball six, followed by Mayank Agarwal’s consecutive boundaries sealed the third win of the tournament for KXIP.
