IPL MI vs KXIP Super-over - Chris Gayle Becomes First Batsman to Hit a Six in Super-over This Year

It was baffling, to say the least when Chris Gayle was benched for seven games straight by Kings XI Punjab -- the last two of which was forced with the Universe Boss being unfit. And as soon as Gayle got a place in the XI, KXIP, who were in a rut losing five matches in a row, have now bounced back with two back to back wins, that latest of which coming against Mumbai Indians in a historic double Super-over win and Gayle played his part, hitting a six off the first ball of the second Super-over to set in motion KXIP's successful chase of 11 runs.

And the interesting bit about that maximum is it was the first time a six was hit in the super over in IPL 2020. This edition has seen five super-overs in total and 25 batsmen have batted in it, but only Gayle has managed to hit a maximum so far. Not to mention, Gayle's thumping return to form brought much delight to his fans and they took to Twitter to show their appreciation to the Universe Boss.
