Not only did Kings XI Punjab Vs Mumbai Indians game end in a tie, but the Super Over also resulted in a tie.

For MI, Jasprit Bumrah produced a stunning Super Over bowling yorkers one after another after both teams were tied at 176/6. Bumrah gave away only 5 and picked the dangerous KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran.


For KXIP, Mohammed Shami produced an equally destructive over, giving away just enough runs for the Super Over to also end in a tie with Quinton de Kock run out in the last ball thanks to some exceptional wicketkeeping skills by the captain himself- keeping KXIP in the hunt.
