Kings XI Punjab (191/6) beat Kings XI Punjab (191/6) at Ahmedabad in 2015 Super Over (15-6) Mumbai Indians (153) beat Gujarat Lions (153/9) at Rajkot in 2017 Super Over (11-6) 6 Runs coming off Jasprit Bumrah's super-over - least in a super-over in the IPL. Krunal, who had singlehandedly held the latter half of their innings together till that point, lofted his senior state mate Irfan Pathan straight over his head to for a six off the first ball. One of the more balanced outfits with all bases covered, Mumbai's primary aim will be to get two more wins as quickly as possibly which will all but ensure a smooth passage into the Play-Offs.
But Pathan, playing in his first match of the season, came back well and the situation came down to one run needed off the last ball with Lasith Malinga on strike. When he walked in, it looked doubtful if the Gujarat Lions would even bat out through their 20 overs.
Chasing 153, Mumbai Indians had a solid start with Parthiv Patel scoring a quick fire 70 and at one stage, it was cruising at 104-3 in 13 overs but their collapse started after the wicket of Rohit Sharma.
Opener, Ishan Kishan, smashed 48 off 35 balls, hitting six boundaries and two maximums, in spite of wickets tumbling around him.
Krunal also heaped praise on Bumrah--who finished with figures of 2/32 in his four overs-- for his fantastic super-over as well, saying, "Basically like this game Bumrah bowled really well, so he was more confident so I guess we went with them". An inspired spell by James Faulkner (2/34) and Basil Thampi (3/29) coupled with Ravindra Jadeja's brilliance in the field saw MI almost pull off a defeat from the jaws of victory. A good over for Kishan 20.15: Kishan's batting puts McClenaghan to doubt after scoring a six and two boundaries.
The Mumbai attack, led by the ever-dependable Krunal Pandya, made a mockery of the Gujarat middle-order thereafter to reduce them to 101/7 in the 16th over. "I have played some close games like this in domestic cricket but this is the best win so far.It was a total team effort".
The tenth season of the IPL witnessed its first super over after some superb fielding from Gujarat Lions saw Mumbai Indians being bowled out for 153, same score as their's.
Bumrah said that he can send out yorkers regularly owing to his rigorous practice routines.
The bowling department of the team will be handling by Praveen Kumar, Faulkner, Nathu Singh and Andrew Tye. For RCB, their bowling is not a big problem, but their batting is certainly one.
