Sunday was a day of dramatic run-chases and spectacular death bowling. Super Overs are a rarity in cricket. However, Sunday had not one but two matches ending in a tie. But even two Super Overs weren’t enough as the day had three Super Overs to decide the fate of matches. While the first one between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders ended in a tie due to David Warner’s heroics, second match went down to the wire due to expert death bowling by Mumbai Indians’ pacers.

Lockie Ferguson bowled a magnificent over as he dismissed Warner and Abdul Samad to restrict SRH to just 2 runs. KKR won the match easily.

The match headed into another Super Over as KXIP eventually managed to get over the line.
