Kings XI Punjab Overpower Mumbai Indians In Double Super-Over Thriller

Kings XI Punjab beat Mumbai Indians in the second match of Super-Sunday October 18, which ended Monday October 19 just because there were two super-overs to decide the fate. Chasing a target of 176 runs, Punjab was once again anchored by KL Rahul (77 off 53 balls) with quick-fixes from Pooran and Hooda. But, Mumbai's Boult did not let them score the 9 needed from the last over; hence, the match tied. For super-over, the Kings' were contained to mere 5 runs by Bumrah's variety of deliveries from his quiver. However, destiny had its own 20-20 to go. Defending just one shot to win, Shami came furiously and bowled 6 yorkers to stop the in-form Rohit Sharma-De Kock pair. The match went to super-over 2.0, where Pollard and Hardik, facing Chris Jordan, could score 11 as Mayank Agarwal pulled in a blinder that could have been a definite six off the last ball. Seeing the tight bowling attack of Mumbai, this looked a bit difficult, but it was Universe Boss Chris Gayle who sent Boult's first delivery straight into the sightscreen for a "whacking SIX!" Later, Mayank hit two consecutive fours to wrap-up the marathon T20 match and keeping Punjab's hopes alive in the tournament.
