In the day's second Super Over finish, Kings XI Punjab beat Mumbai Indians in a second decider to move out of the bottom place in the IPL 2020 standings on Sunday. Earlier in the day, it was the Kolkata Knight Riders who got the better of Sunrisers Hyderabad.
KXIP and MI were locked at 176 runs after 40 overs and then 5 runs each from the first Super Over. This necessitated a second super over where KXIP chased down 12 runs with two balls to spare courtesy Mayank Agarwal and Chris Gayle. The win has taken KXIP to sixth in the table, their second straight win. For Mumbai, though, it is the first loss in six games and just the third of the season. With the defeat, MI take the second spot with Delhi Capitals (DC) top.
Between KKR and SRH, it was Lockie Ferguson who rattled the stumps of both David Warner and Abdul Samad to restrict SRH to 2/2 as they failed to play out the full over. In the end, KKR completed the formalities with two balls to spare.
After their win over SRH, KKR occupy the fourth spot in the points table, but they have taken a step forward in their quest for a playoff berth. SRH continue to be in the fifth position with six points from nine games. The top three spots are occupied by DC, MI and RCB.
