First SuperOver Of The IPL goes to KXIP over RR

#RajasthanRoyals vs #Kings XI Punjab

In a stunning run chase in regulation play, KXIP tied RR's mammoth 191 in 20 overs to setup a mouthwatering #IPLSuperOver decider.

Both teams scored 191 in their stipulated 20 overs
Rahane, Watson, Hooda scoring for RR while Shaun Marsh, Miller, Saha, Johnson and Axar's last ball boundary helped KXIP tie the game. Some sloppy RR fielding ensured the game went into a super over.

Batting first in the super over were KXIP.
Miller and Marsh, the two dashing top scorers in the regulation play .. stepped out to face Morris, arguably the best seamer on that RR side.

Ball 1 - Morris traps Miller LBW! What a start!
Ball 2 - Maxwell, the new man in , somehow sneaks in a single
Ball 3 (No ball) - Four
Ball 3 - Four
Ball 4 - Four
All by Marsh ... igniting KXIP hopes
Ball 5- No run
Ball 6 - 1 leg bye and Marsh is run out trying to steal another one

Score: 15/2 in over 

RR need 16 to win
Watson and Faulkner walked in to face Johnson.
An all Aussie duel to decide an IPL game? WOW!!!

Ball 1 - Watson castled first ball. Similar start to KXIP in that SuperOver
Ball 2 - Another Aussie walks in ... Steve Smith - NO BALL - edged for four
Ball 2 - Single
Ball 3 - RUN OUT .... Faulkner is run out and its game over!
Remember - If you lose two wickets in a super over, you are considered all out... No more batting even if there are deliveries remaining!!

In what was looking like a straightforward win for RR in the regulation time, turned out to be a super over thrill to decide the winner and KXIP grabbed that chance with both hands!!
