In a most dramatic contest, comprising two Super Over deciders, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) held their nerve to eke out
a heart-stopping win over reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI) to most deservingly win two points and stay in the
race for the IPL playoffs.After the scores were levelled at the end of the regulation two innings of 20 overs each,
the contest slipped into a Super Over. However, this decider, too, ended in a tie, and it took another Super Over
decider the winner. The second time around, ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle effectively sealed the win with the first-ball
six.KXIP 176/6 (KL Rahul 77, Nicholas Pooran 24; Jasprit Bumrah 3/24) beat MI 176/6 in 20 overs (Quinton de Kock 53,
Kieron Pollard 34 not out; Mohammed Shami 2/30) in 2nd Super Over.
