Kings XI won the thriller after a double super over

The teams could not separate even after each of the 20 overs, England bowling all-rounder Chris Jordan was run out’ in the original chase of Kings XI was trying to get two wickets from the last ball.

 

Jaspreet Bumrah then limited KOSIP to just five in the super over but it is noteworthy that Mohammad Shami kept Mumbai in the same total, two more from the last ball but this time one of the common Quinton de Kock was missing from his ground after a great piece. Behind the stumps from KL Rahul

 

Jordan stopped Mumbai by 11 runs in their second super over, although a superb piece of Mayank Agarwal fielding on the boundary was needed’ to hit Kieron Pollard's six off the last ball.

 

Chris Gayle then smashed Trent Bolt's first ball to six on a wide long on, and Kings XI needed five of four balls on the next ball. Agarwal finished with a back-to-back boundary to end the historic day of IPL action after three super overs in two games.

 

The game was started’ by Mumbai batting first and faced early trouble. Arshdeep Singh replaced Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan to go 38-3 in the defending champions Power Play.

 

De Kok (53 off 43 balls) and Krunal Pandya (34 off 30) guided South Africa to a hard-fought half-century before dismissing Jordan (1-32). He had the third wicket of another Mumbai slip, which left him 119-6 in the middle of the night in the 17th over.

 

However, some quick hit from Pollard (12 to 34no), with the help of Nathan Coulter-Nile (12 to 24no), took Mumbai to a competitive 176-6.

 

At the start of the reply, Kings XI lost to Agarwal in the in-form, a good one. PL activists can be kept’ in competition.

 

Bumrah returned to remove Pooran and Rahul Chahar (2-33), after already dismissing Gail, was caught’ on slack to leave Galen Maxwell spinning KX.

 

Rahul, the highest run scorer in this year's IPL, though looking impressive, and Deepak Hooda helped his team to a strong position in the last three overs.

 

Rohit called Bumrah again and his strike bowler did the trick again, bowling Rahul (77 out of 51) with a close Yorker to turn the game in Mumbai's favor. It soon receded, however, as Hooda and Jordan took 13 runs from this Parliament from Coulter Nile, requiring nine from the last.

 

One of Jordan's boundaries reached the second ball, from the inside to the bottom of the fine leg, which Kings XI lost the game. As they were stumbling over the tie. Bolt held his nerves to get him to the last ball and once again hit his Yorker; Jordan pushed him a long way but seems to be taking another long way back. ۔ The price turned out to be expensive when Throw found D'Cook's gloves and with an English man took off an inch-by-inch bull from his ground.

 

Mumbai stood on the field to start the super over and not surprisingly, Bumrah took the ball. It was so amazing that he got his ball with every ball, was caught’ on the second ball in the porn backed point and Rahul got stuck in LBW from the last. Ask for only five runs.

 

Mumbai put an end to all smiles, the game was definitely’ won. Not even, close. Shami hit Rohit and De Kok to singles on the first three balls then nailed his Yorker to Rohit for an invaluable dotball. One left-hander, De Kok, needed two from the last, apparently covering his past to ensure success. Instead, it was less and harder to deal with the wicket keeper, but Rahul dived and slammed the ball onto the stumps to run out Diving de Kok.

 

According to the rules, the second super over requires a change of bowlers and batsmen, so Jordan, along with Pollard, took the ball for Kings XI, perhaps surprisingly overlooked in the first one-over shootout, and Hardik for Mumbai. Pandya

 

Jordan hit his Yorker to start but with two fours, between a quiet run on Pollard's compound, put him under pressure. He responded with another Yorker and Pandya was run out’ for second to enable Pollard to continue the strike. It almost worked when Jordan's trying Yorker became a low full toss, which attracted the West Indies to the deep middle wicket.

 

Agarwal was there and bounced as soon as the ball went over his head and somehow managed to get him back in the game, turning a specific six into just two.

 

Given how Gail and Agarwal approached Kings XI's second super over, it may not have made a difference, but it certainly boosted confidence for Mumbai.

 

The most important blow came to Gayle but he started the full toss at the stand from Bolt to start the 44th and final over of the match. A single struck Agarwal and he removed the extra cover from four overs to level the score before hitting the winning shot through the middle wicket on the next ball.

 

The victory has kept Kings XI's hopes of reaching the knockout stage alive, while Mumbai will miss out on a chance to reclaim the top spot and finish second behind Delhi's capitals.
