Super 'Over' Sunday: KXIP beat Mumbai to stay alive

Oct 19, 2020 01:09 IST

Never in the history of cricket did a match go into a double Super Over but that changed on Sunday. Kings XI Punjab fought tooth and nail as their campaign hung by a thread and beat Mumbai Indians in a double Super Over. Chasing 177, KL Rahul once again led Punjab from the front and smashed a 51-ball-77 and became the first Indian player to score 500 runs in 3 consecutive IPL seasons. He though couldn't take his side over the finish line as the game ended in a tie and for the first time in IPL history both games of a double header went into a Super Over. If that wasn't enough, it also couldn't separate the 2 teams as the scores were tied once again. Mumbai managed 11 runs in the second Super Over, which Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal chased down with ease. Punjab's 2nd consecutive win means that they can still qualify for the playoffs on their own, given they win the remaining 5 games.
