There have been 13 matches with Super Overs in the 13 editions of the IPL so far. Four of those have taken place in the 2020 edition. And two of those four on Sunday, the last of them even giving us a Double Super Over. Here's a reminder of the ten key moments that shaped Super (Overs) Sunday at the IPL, making it such a heady viewing experience.
Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab, Dubai
Bumrah nails Rahul with a yorker - 17.3 overs
This was the ball that swung the match the Mumbai Indians' way. It was the 18th over. Jasprit Bumrah had been hit for 15 in his previous over. KL Rahul was on 75 and in command. The Kings XI needed just 27 from the last three overs. Off the third ball, Bumrah went wide off the crease, and pitched the perfect yorker with a hint of reverse swing. Rahul moved in line to cover off stump, but the almost-149-kph ball swerved past the outside edge of the closed bat-face to hit off stump.
Coulter-Nile denies boundary to Hooda - 19.1 overs
The Kings XI now needed just nine runs from the final six balls, and Trent Boult lined up to bowl. Deepak Hooda moved quickly wide outside his off stump to pick a fuller-length delivery that was angled away. Hooda thought he had flicked firmly as the ball was flying over square leg for a certain boundary. Except it did not - Nathan Coulter-Nile flung himself to his wrong side (left) to stop it, even attempting to pluck the catch with a reverse cup. Had Hooda succeeded, the target would have come down to five from five. But Coulter-Nile kept the Mumbai Indians in the contest.
Jordan takes circuitous route - 19.6 overs
The Kings XI needed just two runs from the final delivery to win. Getting close to the stumps, Boult delivered a yorker at Chris Jordan's toes. Jordan did well to push the ball to the empty mid-on area and immediately called for two even as Kieron Pollard, standing well inside the boundary at long-on, charged in. And Jordan, instead of running in a straight line after completing the first run, decided to take a long route back, which gave Quinton de Kock enough time to neatly collect a powerful throw from Pollard and whip off the bails. A straight dash, and Jordan should have made it. The match was a tie. It was the second Super Over on Sunday, the first time the IPL had experienced two on the same day.
Shami's own super over - Super Over 1
De Kock and Rohit Sharma just needed to get five runs. Mohammed Shami ran in for the first ball, went wide off the crease, and pitched the perfect off-stump yorker that de Kock could only nudge for a single. Having seen Bumrah succeed with the yorker and the low full-toss work in Mumbai's Super Over, Shami's aim, as Rahul revealed after the match, was to bowl six yorkers. He bowled five of them perfectly… It was one of the best overs of fast bowling, done with a smile and without any apparent show of nerves.
Rahul runs out de Kock - final ball, Super Over 1
It came down to two to win off the final ball for the Mumbai Indians, with de Kock facing Shami. He stuck to the wide yorker, and de Kock did well to chip it to the right of short cover where Ravi Bishnoi dived but failed to intercept the ball, allowing the batsmen to turn back for the second. Nicholas Pooran charged from the deep, but his throw was not on the stumps. But in a moment of brilliance, Rahul, who stood out in the field with the Orange Cap (for most runs this IPL) on, moved in front of the stumps, went down on his right knee to collect the off-target throw, and then flicked the ball back on to the stumps in the nick of time to beat the dive from de Kock. On to Super Over Part II.
Agarwal denies Pollard 6 - Super Over 2
Jordan had done really well allowing just nine runs from his first five balls to the pair of Pollard and Hardik Pandya. Pollard was on strike for the final delivery, which turned out to be a low full toss. Pollard, ready deep in his crease, flicked the ball powerfully to deep midwicket, where Mayank Agarwal was stationed. As the ball looked set to go well over him, Agarwal used all his core strength to leap powerfully and somehow - stunningly - managed to connect with the ball mid-air and parry it back into the field of play. "Phenomenal," Simon Doull, the commentator, burst on air - a befitting description of Agarwal's fielding. It meant Pollard and Mumbai got just two runs instead of six and the target was 12.
Gayle goes bam - Super Over 2
Chris Gayle did not waste time. The first ball from Boult was a low full toss, in the slot, and Gayle hacked it over deep midwicket for a big six. The pressure was off straightaway, and Agarwal finished the job with two crisp boundaries to put an end to a long but memorable Sunday.
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Abu Dhabi
Hobbling Russell takes match to Super Over - 19.6 overs
If the night was breathtaking, the evening had set things up nicely. Andre Russell has been hurting this IPL - both physically, and with his struggles on the field, especially with the bat. On Sunday, Russell had flopped with the bat again, hurt his hamstring in the field, but was sent back to bowl the final over of the match. The Sunrisers Hyderabad needed 18 runs. Their captain David Warner was at the crease with the young Abdul Samad. Russell's first ball was a free hit. Warner then cracked three consecutive boundaries to bring the equation down to two runs from the final ball. Russell jogged in to hurl a 132-kph delivery into Warner's pads. Warner attempted to hit down leg, but getting up taking just one leg-bye. Mumbai had just started batting in Dubai, as the match in Abu Dhabi entered the Super Over.
Ferguson-Gill combo denies Samad a six - 18.6 overs
This was the last over of the previous over. Samad had played a brilliant cameo, picking 23 from 14 balls. The last from Shivam Mavi was an easy low full toss that Samad hit flat towards deep midwicket. Lockie Ferguson, at deep square-leg, ran to this left, positioned himself sideways to pouch the catch safely with two hands just inches inside the boundary line. But with momentum threatening to put him off balance, Ferguson noticed Shubman Gill was close enough, so he lobbed the ball neatly to his team-mate, who completed the catch even as the New Zealander crossed the boundary line.
Ferguson rocks Sunrisers with three-ball trick - Super Over 1
Looking like a contestant in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Ferguson knocked the Sunrisers out in just three deliveries in the Super Over. First, he pitched a length delivery in the high 140s to knock back Warner's off stump, and two deliveries - and two runs - later, bowled Samad with a brilliant change of pace. The target for the Knight Riders was just three runs.
