In a most dramatic T20 cricket match ever, comprising two Super Over deciders, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) held its nerve to eke out a heart-stopping win over reigning IPL 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.

Second super over Rules

MCC law states: Any batsman dismissed in a Super-Over can't take part in the next.

Batsman got out does not bat again and bowler cannot be repeated.

Both teams used different set of players in both Super Overs

The hero of the thriller at Dubai International Cricket Stadium was KXIP captain-cum-wicket-keeper-cum-batsman KL Rahul, who was adjudged the Man of the Match, not just for his 51-ball 77, but perhaps also for his cool captaincy.

It was the day's second match that was decided through a Super Over decider, as earlier in the day, Kolkata Knight Riders had pipped SunRisers Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi.

MI won the toss and posted 176 for six wickets in 20 overs, with the lone half-century coming from Quinton de Kock (53 off 43 balls), and KXIP ended with the same score, thanks to top scorer Rahul, who slammed seven boundaries and three sixes.

In the first Super Over, MI fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah once again stepped up when the team needed him. The lanky bowler first picked three wickets in the match before his lethal bowling saw KXIP managing just five runs losing two wickets in the first Super Over.

However, MI scored five and lost one wicket, as the contest extended to the second Super Over.

In the second Super Over, MI managed 11 runs at the loss of one wicket, and while chasing KXIP opener Chris Gayle's massive six, along with Mayank Agarwal's boundary was enough to fetch KXIP a pulsating win with two balls to spare.

Agarwal was the hero of the second Super Over. While fielding near the boundary line, he leapt back to catch the ball while being air-borne at long on rope and threw it back in to deny Kieron Pollard a six. That turned out to be a decisive save.

Before it, KXIP, who were chasing the 177-run target, were off to a flying start as KL Rahul (77) and Mayank Agarwal (11) added 33 runs in the initial three overs.

Three balls later, Bumrah castled Agarwal that saw Chris Gayle (24) joining skipper Rahul in the middle.

Gayle and Rahul tried to repair the early damage with a 42-run stand for the second wicket. While trying to clear the long-off fence in the 10th over, Gayle handed a catch to Trent Boult at the boundary off a Rahul Chahar delivery.

Nicholas Pooran (24) and Rahul were then involved in a 33-run stand before Bumrah struck again, this time packing the West Indian in the 13th over, leaving KXIP at 108/3.

Glenn Maxwell maintained his inconsistency with the bat as the Aussie once again departed without troubling the scorers. Rahul and Hooda then shared 38-run stand, taking their side closer to the target.

However, Bumrah spoiled the KXIP party as he dismissed Rahul in the 18th over with a deadly yorker. Bumrah's breakthrough also turned out to be the game changer. With nine needed off the final over, Deepak Hooda (23 not out) and Chris Jordan (13) could manage only eight.

The match went down to the wire with two required from the final ball but a brilliant run out saw Jordan falling short of the crease as scores were tied.

For MI, Bumrah shone with figures of 3/24 while Rahul Chahar bagged two.

Earlier, wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock's valiant 53 along with Kieron Pollard's 34 and Nathan Coulter-Nile (24) late fireworks took MI to 176/6'

MI kept losing wickets at regular intervals as half of their batsmen were back in the pavilion with 116 runs on board in 15.3 overs. However, de Kock showed grit and determination in the middle.

The South African stumper was involved in a 58-run partnership with Krunal Pandya (34) before falling. de Kock's innings contained three fours and as many sixes.

Later in the 'death' overs, Pollard and Coulter-Nile's cameo put MI in a healthy position, adding unbeaten 57 runs off the final 21 balls.

Pollard's knock, which came off just 12 balls, was decorated with a boundary and four sixes while Coulter-Nile smashed four fours.

For KXIP, Mohammad Shami and Arshdeep Singh picked two wickets each. Shami also bowled a tight over in the first Super Over decider.

MI vs KXIP toss prediction: Win toss and bat first

Taking cue from what Simon Dull said during pitch report batting first would be an ideal option at Dubai. The pitch is getting slow and all RCB needed yesterday a AB de Villiers and poor strategy from Steve Smith. So bat first and defend the total.

PITCH REPORT

"Same track as the one used yesterday afternoon. It hasn't changed since RR scored 177 yesterday, but it looks a little drier. Spinners did a good job yesterday going for about 8 an over in general. Not much turn, but it will turn a little bit today. Be wary of the spinners, but also be wary of the short boundaries on one side, ranging from 61 to 65 meters behind square for the right-hander. No wind around to intervene, but 165-170 should be enough. If you bowl well, you should be alright, " said Simon Dull during pitch report

Zaheer Khan on MI's journey so far in IPL 2020

"We have a great cricketing rhythm going at the moment and that's something which is very important for us to continue with. So staying in the right zone is something which everyone is keen on and that's what as a group we're going to encourage going forward," said Zaheer.

Here's what Zaheer Khan said about Bumrah

Bumrah is a match-winner and that's the responsibility with which he walks onto the field with and he's been doing it so fantastically well for us, says Zaheer Khan.

Here's Coach Zaheer Khan said about Mumbai pace attack

Jasprit Bumrah has been a keg cog in Mumbai Indians' bowling wheel and Director of Cricket Operations, Zaheer Khan feels that the Indian Pacer has been doing the job for the side "fantastically".
 
Defending champions Mumbai Indians are at top of the table with 12 points and the bowling attack has played an important role in the team's success in the ongoing IPL.
 
Trent Boult and Bumrah both have taken 12 wickets in the ongoing IPL.
 
"For us, it's very important that we set the tone nicely and that's what Boult has been doing for us. He's been swinging the ball and attacking the stumps," said Zaheer in a video posted on Mumbai Indians' Twitter.
 
"An we have been putting the responsibility on Bumrah to the tough job. We know it is not easy for any bowler to come late in the game and then have that kind of impact," he added.

Key batsmen for Mumbai Indians

Skipper Rohit Sharma and opener Quinton de Kock are in good form while the middle-order features Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan who, too, have been doing great with their bat.
 
Keiron Pollard, Krunal and Hardik Pandya strengthen MI's lower-middle-order.
 

Will Gayle continues his form today?

After missing most of the first-half games, self-proclaimed 'Universe Boss' Gayle made a decent start with a 45-ball 53 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the previous game. The KXIP think-tank will hope Gayle to replicate the show along with the in-form opener Mayank Agarwal and skipper KL Rahul, who has been the leading run-getter with 1,700 runs off 36 games.



IPL 2020, Match 36: MI vs KXIP

Reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI) would look to enhace its chances of sealing a playoff berth with a win when it plays a deflated Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the 36th game of the 13th Indian Premier League (IPL) at 7:30 pm today.
 
Despite being in red hot form, the Rohit Sharma-led MI wouldn't take their opponents lightly on Sunday, as KXIP is motivated by the return of hard-hitting Chris Gayle.
 
While MI is the current joint toppers with 12 points, KXIP languish at the bottom of the eight-team standings and another defeat will make their task to qualify very difficult.
