Punjab started off well with the bat. It was KL Rahul who was the pick of the lot with the bat and he was amazing out in the middle. Chris Gayle, too was good with the bat but he could not stay for a long period. Pooran played some good strokes but was sent back to the hut by Bumrah. It was Bumrah again who got rid of Rahul towards the end. Hooda and Jordan played well in the final 2 overs for them to make the Super Over.

What a finish we have had in this game! Right down to the wire and it is a tie! Second Super Over in the day! The game kept shuffling between Mumbai and Punjab and in the end, 40 overs of play could not separate both the sides and a Super Over will be required for us to find the winner in this one.

Trent Boult to Chris Jordan, OUT! RUN OUT! We have another Super Over! History created! Two Super Overs in the same day! Very full on middle, Jordan drives it to long on and takes off for the couple. The fielder has a shy at the keeper's end. De Kock collects and whips the bails off. Third umpire is called for and the replays show that Jordan was out of his crease. SUPER OVER.

The third umpire is called into play for this run out appeal. Replays roll in and his bat is just short. This is going to be out.

Trent Boult to Deepak Hooda, DROPPED! Would have been a terrific catch but he definitely saved four runs for his side! Full ball on middle, Hooda shuffles across and then heaves it to square leg. Coulter-Nile dives full stretch to take the catch but fails to hold on but he has done well to stop the boundary. Only a single.

Trent Boult will bowl the final over of the innings. Can he defend the 9 runs that Punjab require?

Jasprit Bumrah to KL Rahul, WIDE! Full ball outside off, Rahul leaves it alone. Wided.

Ishan Kishan seems to be in some sort of discomfort. He is clutching his hamstring and the physios are out in the middle to have a look at him. Mumbai will be hoping that this is nothing serious as Kishan is a gun out in the field and they will need him out there.

Jasprit Bumrah to Deepak Hooda, Good length ball on middle, Hooda pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a couple.

DRINKS! All eyes are on KL Rahul at the moment. They need 52 to win in 5 overs and with Rahul still out there, Punjab will back themselves to chase this down. Deepak Hooda is a handy batsman and Punjab will hope that he can support Rahul out in the middle. Mumbai, on the other hand, need to take the wicket of KL Rahul as soon as possible, otherwise he will take the game away from them.

Rahul Chahar to Glenn Maxwell, OUT! CAUGHT! What are Punjab doing? They are losing wickets at such a quick pace and this does not help their cause! It is Maxwell who has departed this time and he has not fired once again with the bat! Loopy ball outside off, Maxwell looks to work this across the line but it spins away a touch and kisses his outside edge and goes towards Rohit Sharma who is at first slip and he is not going to drop these chances.

Second match on Super Sunday sees Mumbai take on Punjab. A team that is in supreme form taking on one that is battered and hopes to be like their opponents are. Mumbai are on a 5-match winning spree, no stopping the defending champions. Punjab have recovered from a 4-match losing one, only by just, against Bangalore in their last game. If the Bangalore they faced second time around was much different from the one earlier, Punjab now have to contend with the mightiest of challenges, an insurmountable Mumbai. Punjab need to keep winning from here and if they do pull it off against Mumbai, they can take on any side in the coming games and march strong. But therein lies the challenge, how to take down a side that has advanced so strongly in this edition. Much to ponder for Rahul and his men. A daunting task beckons them.
