Jasprit Bumrah then restricted KXIP to just five in the Super Over but remarkably Mohammed Shami kept Mumbai to the same total, again two were needed from the last ball but this time it was Quinton de Kock left short of his ground after a brilliant piece of work from KL Rahul behind the stumps.

With the win over Mumbai in the second Super Over, Punjab have an opportunity to make it to the playoffs provided they win their every game henceforth. The left-hander continued his good run of form to bring up his third successive half-century and did a fine rebuilding job with Krunal Pandya after MI lost three wickets in the powerplay, with not more than 43 runs on the board. Pollard remained unbeaten on 34 off just 12 balls with one boundary and four sixes.

It was the pace duo of Arshdeep Singh (2/35) and Mohammed Shami (2/30) who provided the early breakthroughs, dismissing Rohit Sharma (9) and Suryakumar Yadav (0) respectively to reduce MI to 24 for two in 3.3 overs. Towards the end of the innings, Kieron Pollard finished on a high in a 57 run unbroken stand for the seventh wicket with Nathan Coulter-Nile (24 n.o.: 12b, 4x4). Mumbai Indians got off to a bad start as they lost three wickets inside the Powerplay, with skipper Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan all back in the pavillion.

Bumrah returned to remove Pooran and Rahul Chahar (2-33), having already dismissed Gayle, had Glenn Maxwell caught at slip for a duck to leave KXIP wobbling. Needing 22 runs in the last two overs, the likes of Deepak Hooda and Chris Jordan played with maturity to take the game deep but couldn't get past the victory line. On the last ball of the over, Bumrah delivered a ideal yorker and trapped Rahul LBW and helped MI restrict KXIP to 5/2. It soon swung back, though, as Hooda and Jordan took 13 from the penultimate over from Coulter-Nile to leave themselves needing nine from the last.

While the England pacer hit the right length on the first ball, bowling a yorker, he had to re-bowl his second ball after conceding a wide. The Universe Boss hammered a six over the long-on on the first ball and then ran a single.

The laws dictate that a second Super Over requires a change of bowler and batsmen so Jordan took the ball for Kings XI with Pollard, perhaps surprisingly overlooked for the first one-over shootout, and Hardik Pandya in for Mumbai.

Rahul and Pooran then added 33 runs together. Chris Jordan bowled the second Super Over for KXIP.

The fifth ball was a dot before Mayank Agarwal put in a stunning effort to save a six.

Krunal was promoted up the order and he hit his first six when he deposited Chris Jordan's third ball to the stands over deep extra cover.
