Kings XI Punjab 176/6

RR: 8.75 | Kings XI Punjab tied with Mumbai Indians (Kings XI Punjab win 2nd Super Over by 2 wickets)

commentary

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.

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

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.

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.

Bumrah always does what he needs to do when he is brought back in the middle overs! Bumrah dishes a short length ball around off and middle, Pooran swivels and pulls this one hard but it does not have enough power in it for it to cross the ropes.

Kieron Pollard to KL Rahul, Full on middle, Rahul works it to deep mid-wicket for a single. 

DRINKS! Punjab needed a strong start if they wanted to chase this target down, they have done just that. First, it was the duo of Rahul and Mayank but then Mayank fell and in came Chris Gayle. Now, it is Gayle and Rahul out there and if they keep going the way they are, this total will be chased down with ease. But the bowling attack of Mumbai is no joke and they will be roaring to send these batters back to the hut. They will need to scalp some wickets if they are to stop them from chasing this down. An interesting spell of cricket awaits us. Kieron Pollard is handed the ball by Mumbai.
