History is made as IPL witness 3 Super Overs in one day for the first time

It was a ‘Super Sunday’ in the Indian Premier League 2020 as it witnessed three Super Overs in a day – an event which occurred for the first time in the history of IPL. It was a day of double-header and both the games, KKR vs SRH and MI vs KXIP were decided in their respective Super Overs. Interestingly, prior to Sunday, there wasn’t a single day in IPL history which witnessed more than one Super Over, but it all changed on October 18.

Chasing a 164-run target, SRH needed 18 runs to win in the last over and the team’s captain David Warner took full advantage of KKR all-rounder Andre Russell bowling with a short run-up due to an injury.
