that does it. Full on leg stump, leans in on the front foot and turns this to fine leg's left. A dive there, a good effort, but enough time for them to come back for a second

10:37pm And that is it from our coverage. So much to talk about from this game and our writers and experts are on it. For Delhi fans - Ashwin was at the presentation without a sling and feels he's ready for the next game, so it could be a lot less worse than was first reported. KXIP fans - lines and margins, sound familiar? Thanks all for joining us. We'll see you tomorrow.
M Stoinis: It's a weird game, isn't it? Sometimes the luck goes your way but you can easily go from hero to villain. You just try and feed on everyone's energy. It's nice that the IPL's got going again. We were nervous for a bit. Didn't think there'd be a Super Over tonight.
Marcus Stoinis is the Man of the Match.
Iyer: It was so difficult to stand out there. I would like to say that we're used to this - even last season. Kagiso is a gamechanger for us. If you see out top order batsmen, it's difficult to stop them when they get going, so it's difficult to tell them not to. There was grass on the pitch and it was moving and we discovered that in 3-4 overs. I wouldn't give the lights as the reason for poor catching. But that's not the reason because we got one session to train here under the lights. It was really important for us to get wickets because the total was small. Back of my mind I knew that if I save KG's overs for the end, it'll work out. Credit to Ashwin, he almost changed the game in that over. It's up to the physio but Ashwin said he is available for the next game. It was really gutsy of [Axar] to lead the team in that area. It's good to know in the back of mind that I have an extra spinner who can pick it up. [Super Over combo] we usualy go left-rigth combination, it becomes difficult for the bowler.
R Ashwin is at the presentation without a sling. Good signs.
Did you think Chris Jordan's one-short run was a one-short run? Head over to our Rolling Report to cast your vote and settle the debate.
K Rabada: There'll always be nerves for me no matter how long I play when things get tight. Luckily it came off today. [Super Over thought process] It just depends what works for me on the day and just getting a feel for what might work as well. Today it was just mixing the lengths up and it worked. There's decent bounce in this wicket, and the boundaries are quite big. So it'll take a bit to clear it. So I backed myself. [The Jordan catch] I just stuck my hand out. The ball before I was moved into the position so credit to him. It was just a reaction catch.
KL Rahul: It is bittesrsweet. At the end of 10 overs I would have taken the Super Over. We wish to learn from our mistakes and build as a team. Mayank was unbelievable. to get the game that close is a magical effort. That is the type of innings we expect from someone like him. Nice to see him bring his confidence to the IPL. Obviously this gets the group closer. Like I said at the toss, we didn't really know what to expect of the pitch. Didn't think it would be sticky, but both teams got 150+. [Captaincy] I'd gladly take it as a captain, most important is the effort. We made a few mistakes, but that's a learning for the group. If you saw the dressing room, even at 55 for 5 it was a calm dressing room.
10:14pm Whew. Have you got your breath back? Just so much happened in both innings that made us wonder - how did it get here? Stoinis' freak innings got Delhi 57 in the last three. Then a total collapse, including two in an over from Ashwin before his unfortunate exit with a shoulder injury. Mayank Agarwal, whow as struggling for rhythm at the start - remember him pumping his fists and speaking animatedly to K Gowtham when they needed about 12 an over after hitting his first six of the night. He believed then, and it was optimistic at best. But wow did he kick on from there. It's taken a while for someone of his caliber to play an innings like this in the IPL - but how do you reckon he feels right now? 1 off 3, caught off a full toss. That will sting. And so will it for Jordan too. Spare a thought for him - conceded 30 off the last over, was at the end of a contentious call for short run, and still had the opportunity to close it all off and redeem himself. Except, that full toss was hit straight to Rabada - who then showed what closing a game off means. Glenn Maxwell didn't get a ball in the Super Over. KXIP didn't even get all six balls. Stunning, stunning game.
down leg side. Short and very far down leg side. Pant has another swish but that is way too far for him to connect
beaten. Short and wide across his body, from over the wicket. Has a big swish at that with a cut but it's past the bat
Iyer and Pant are Delhi's batsmen.
Cain: "On boy! Pooran gets a pair in a T20 game. Is there anyone else who has already achieved this feat?" --- Moises Henriques got one for Sydney Sixers against Perth Scorchers in 2014
This is also the lowest Super Over score in the IPL
Remember, Rabada defended against Russell in a Super Over last year. Superb stuff. Delhi need three to win. Mohammed Shami is warkimg up for KXIP.
bowled him! All over. Rabada, the Super Over expert. Delhi Capitals need three to win. Full and at off stump. Front leg in the leg side, looks to slog it into the leg side, head all out of position and KXIP won't even finish their over
Maxwell is the third batsman for KXIP
taken by deep square! Brilliant, brilliant from Rabada. Short ball follows him down leg side. He loses balance and swipes from underneath that and it's a feeble slice for the fielder back there
all fielders back on the leg side.
full and into the pads, stays tall and tucks it with a wristy flick. To deep square's right
10:01pm KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran are the batsmen. Rabada with the ball.
9:56pm Kings XI will be miffed. Not least because 18.3 was a contentious short run call. Jordan turned for the second and it didn't appear like it was a short run. They then needed one off three and have somehow managed to find themselves in a Super Over, despite two full tosses in the last two balls. Wow. Once again, somehow, with Stoinis involved, Delhi Capitals stay alive in the game. They will, of course, have the ball for the Super Over.
he's hit a full toss straight to square leg! Low full toss at leg stump, flicked firmly and Rabada with the magix reflexes to force a super over
Stoinis v Jordan. Redemption time for Jordan now...1 required off 1...
he's found sweeper cover! Can you believe it! All fielders in the circle, only the sweeper back. It's a full toss wide outside off. He swishes at it, just trying to guide it, but he's found Hetmyer! Oh he'll kick himself for this. What an innings it has been, falls just short of taking them over
beaten. Short and wide outside off, looks to play the hook and it's well beaten. But they can afford that now. It's also the bouncer out of the equation for the next two balls
he's tied it! Incredible! Full ball at the stumps, backs away once more and slices it to long-off's left. Mohit with the big dive to get a hand on that, but it gets tangled up in his body as he makes connection with the boundary padding
Five runs off four
yorker at middles stump, squeezed down to long-on's right and once again Jordan is back for the second Mayank has to dive as the throw comes in at his end
long long way over the bowler! Full and floated up at the stumps, Mayank lines it up with his leg well into the leg side and crunches it
They need 13 off 6. Here is Stoinis. He brought the target to this single handedly. He has to finish it now...
low full toss outside off, gets down and taps it to extra cover to keep strike for the final over
just clears extra cover. Low full toss at off stump, backs away and looks to open the face. Barely gets it over...looks like it's a run short though even though they're back for the second. Addendum: The short run was given for 18.3, but was registered by the commentator after this ball
Iyer drops it at deep midwicket! Short ball into the body, a tired aerial pull. Floated to Iyer's left and he has the reverse cups up and almost no balance as this digs into the turf and lifts over the line
another perfect yorker and he jams it down to long-on. Jordan quickly back for the second. Mayank on the fringes of his fitness right now, huffing and puffing.
over Rabada and into the boundary. Full at middle. Mayank waiting in the leg side again with his front leg. Just misses fractionally and he gets the perfect connection to get this over the bowler. His highest IPL score
perfect yorker. Follows him down leg side, pins his toes as he looks to flick this. Rabada is so so good at this
Towels, water, two substitues. KXIP will give Mayank whatever he needs right now. 25 off 12 with a Rabada over coming up. What's he thinking? 10 runs? Will he back himself to get 15 against Stoinis in the 20th? Our forecaster has their win probability at 18.1%
swing he does, but can't connect. Disappointed too, because this was there in the slot. Good length and just outside off
Surely a free swing here for Jordan?
He's tiring out, Mayank. Signals to the dugout.
length at middle stump, punched firmly down to long-on
length at middle, soft-handed poke into the vacant midwicket region. Big boundary there and once again, Jordan is already back for the second before Mayank can call
clears long-off! The rhythm is back for Mayank! Full slower ball, back of the hand, at off stump. He had already shaped to hit that off the front foot, but he had to adjust. Waited and waited and then drilled it flat and straight
Ganesh: "Waiting for stoinis vs jordan again"
short ball just outside off, pulled firmly off the front foot to deep midwicket's left. Loud call for two and Jordan does his part brilliantly
slices it over the backward point boundary to bring up fifty. Good length ball flung wide outside off. On his back knee and deliberately slashes this. To sweeper's left. He's keeping them interested
42 needed off 18. One Rabada over in there. Stoinis and Mohit for the other two, you'd imagine. Yes, Mohit to bowl the 18th. Agarwal on strike.
low full toss at leg stump, driven firmly to long-on
length at middle stump, mistimed slog trickles down to long-on
