In the first-ever game in IPL history where two Super-overs got played in the same match, the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) beat the Mumbai Indians (MI).
The first Super Over was bowled by two Indian bowlers at the pinnacle of their abilities, both surrendering a simple 5 runs off their overs. The second Super Over was somewhat less close. Chasing 12 for the win, Chris Gayle cut that down the middle with a six off the first ball, and inside four balls, Mayank Agarwal took the group home after having saved four runs at the boundary a couple of moments before.
In an unbelievable round of IPL cricket, most players from the two groups showed the pinnacle of their ability, while a couple couldn’t coordinate in that IPL match. Here are the three greatest failures in the game:
1. Suryakumar Yadav (MI)
MI No. 3 batsman Suryakumar Yadav persevered through a horror outing in the wake of discovering form on a few occasions prior to this season. After the wicket of captain Rohit, Suryakumar became KXIP pacer Mohammad Shami’s first scalp of the night as he left for a duck after having faced four balls. His wicket added to MI’s powerplay burdens, as they lost three wickets inside the initial six overs and glanced in colossal difficulty.
Suryakumar scarcely got an occasion to contribute to the match later on.
2. Rohit Sharma (MI)
MI captain Rohit Sharma had a helpless outing with the bat. Despite the fact that he struck two fours, he included only one run in the other six balls he confronted. Rohit was bowled by young pacer Arshdeep Singh. He made 9 runs off 8 balls before he left the crease.
As captain, Rohit to a great extent picked the correct fields. In any case, an absence of intent while chasing only 6 in the Super Over, and a helpless show by his group with the ball in the second one implied that he needed to walk back baffled.
3. Glenn Maxwell (KXIP)
On a day where it was cruel to term anybody a failure truly; Glenn Maxwell would blame himself for being not able to have an effect with the bat. His primary commitments today accompanied ball in hand, yielding only 24 off his four.
It was with the bat that he fizzled. Attempting to crush leg-spinner Rahul Chahar into the stands, all he oversaw was a thick edge to the first slip. Maxwell got out for a duck. This put huge pressure on KXIP’s out of form and inexperienced lower middle-order. But somehow the Kings managed to win the game on the night.
