After 43.4 overs of the mind-boggling contest, Kings XI Punjab have defeated Mumbai Indians in the second super and advanced to the sixth position of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 team standings. Chasing 177 for victory, the game went to the Super Over and fans were excited. However, what followed is History! Jasprit Bumrah gave just five runs in the one-over eliminator as MI needed only six runs to get points in their kitty. However, Mohammed Shami didn’t put his guards and gave exactly five runs from his over as well. Owing to the fact, a game advanced to the second super over for the first time in IPL history. MI vs KXIP Highlights Dream11 IPL 2020.

Batsman dominated the second super over as Kieron Pollard helped MI post 11 runs.

KL Rahul, who scored 77 runs while chasing the target, was adjudged as the Man of the Match.

Earlier in the match, Mumbai Indians won the toss and elected to bat first at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
