Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab – Highlights & Stats

October 19, 2020 0 By boss

Kings XI Punjab came out on top at the end of an incredible Indian Premier League contest with Mumbai Indians which could only be decided after two Super Overs in Dubai.

The teams could not be separated after 20 overs each, with England bowling all-rounder Chris Jordan run out trying to get back for two from the final ball for Kings XI.

Jasprit Bumrah then restricted KXIP to just five in the Super Over but remarkably Mohammed Shami kept Mumbai to the same total, again two were needed from the last ball but this time it was Quinton de Kock left short of his ground after a brilliant piece of work from KL Rahul behind the stumps.

Jordan kept Mumbai to 11 in their second Super Over, albeit that required a stunning piece of fielding from Mayank Agarwal on the boundary to deny Kieron Pollard a six from the last ball.

Chris Gayle then smashed Trent Boult’s first ball over wide long-on for six and a single next ball left Kings XI needing five from four balls. Agarwal finished the job with back-to-back boundaries to bring an historic day of IPL action to an end after three Super Overs across the two games.
