IPL 2020: MI vs KXIP or 2019 WC final? From Harbhajan to Yuvraj believes double Super Over finish is the craziest fest ever

New Delhi: It was a nerve-wracking encounter between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Kings XI Punjab showed nerves of steel as they defeated defending champions Mumbai Indians in an rare double super over match. It was the first time that two Super Overs were bowled in a game. In the World Cup final, England had defeated New Zealand on the basis of boundary count rule after the Super Over was tied.

Mumbai Indians could have lost the game in normal time when Kings XI Punjab looked on course to a victory while chasing the target of 177 runs in Dubai. Skipper Rahul once again starred for KXIP with a brilliant knock of 77 runs off 51 balls but failed to get his team over the finish line as he was dismissed in the 18th over. Deepak Hooda (23) and Chris Jordan (13) were on the crease with 9 to get off the 20th over.

Yuvraj asked which one of the two was a better game and hailed the “unbelievable” scenes witnessed in the match between KXIP and Mumbai Indians on Sunday.

“Was the World Cup final of 2019 a beter game or #mivskxip ? Unbelievable scenes today #ipl is here to stay Amazing effort by both teams @Jaspritbumrah93 game changer for @mipaltan and @klrahul11 for Punjab great finish world boss @henrygayle @mayankcricket #IPL2020 #supersunday,” Yuvraj tweeted.

Interestingly, the first game of the doubleheader on Sunday too was decided after a Super Over. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a thrilling Super Over clash at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

With the win against Mumbai Indians on Sunday, KXIP are at sixth spot with six points in nine games now and will next take on Delhi Capitals at Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday, October 20.

On the other hand, defending champions Mumbai Indians are at second spot with 12 points, two points short of front-runner Delhi Capitals, and will next face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Friday.
