The Delhi Capitals win the Super Over!
Some match we've had for game 2 of the Indian Premier League. Looks like the long wait for the IPL was worth it after all. Having won the toss, KL Rahul put Delhi Capitals in to bat. The Capitals didn't have the greatest of starts, losing three wickets early in the innings. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant would steady the ship but it was some Marcus Stoinis fireworks that would take Delhi to a competitive score in the end.

Punjab began their chase in a steady manner but skipper KL Rahul would see his leg stump take a walk and the wickets began to tumble soon after. Not too long after, the Kings found themselves tottering at 55/5 at the end of the tenth over. 

Krishnappa Gowtham walked in to join his state teammate Mayank Agarwal out in the middle and helped dig the Kings out of a very difficult situation with quickfire 20. It was only after Gowtham got out that Agarwal would really come into his own. And that could very well have been the story of the match, had it not been for a catch well taken at the boundary by Shimron Hetmyer.

Agarwal would quickly switch gears and drag his team to within one run of the target with some fantastic cricket strokes. An innings for the ages would not be enough as a catch in the deep off the penultimate ball saw Shami go out there all set to run for his life off the last ball. Chris Jordan would get out of the last ball as Marcus Stoinis truly completed his start turn in the game after the heroics with the bat earlier in the game.

There is the small matter of a short run that meant the game ended in a tie. With replays showing that the short run wasn't, in fact, a short run, an umpiring error might just have been the difference between victory and defeat for the Kings in the end.

But credit where it's due. The Capitals did turn up for the Super Over with a better strategy in place. KL Rahul got a couple before skying a bouncer from Rabada that Prithvi Shaw took comfortably. The South African pacer would then york Nicholas Pooran back to the pavilion.

Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant walked out to play the Super Over for the Capitals, and scored the three runs they needed off Shami's over without breaking a sweat. A big win in a fantastic game of cricket in the end for Delhi Capitals.

Marcus Stoinis is named Man of the Match for that blockbuster innings and those two balls right at the end of the Punjab innings, both swinging the game towards Delhi. Well-deserved without a doubt. 
That's the end of the game. And the Delhi Capitals take the points home with an easy Super Over win in the end. What a game we've had though! 
0.2 Mohammed Shami to Rishabh Pant, DELHI CAPITALS WIN! Full delivery down the leg side and Pant just calmly works that one to the left of fine leg to collect a brace and finish the game off!
0.2 Mohammed Shami to Rishabh Pant, another short delivery but this one slides down the leg side. Called a wide by the umpire!
0.1 Mohammed Shami to Rishabh Pant, banged into the track way outside off stump and Pant has an enormous swing at it. He fails to make any contact though and that is a dot
Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant will start the Super Over for the Delhi Capitals. Mohammad Shami will bowl it for Kings XI Punjab! 
Cleaned up. KXIP manage just the two runs in the Super Over. Way to let down Mayank Agarwal after that innings though, unfortunate as it may be. Surely, this is Delhi's game now?
0.3 Kagiso Rabada to Nicholas Pooran, OUT! IT IS ALL OVER FOR KXIP IN THE SUPER OVER! Searing yorker on off stump and Pooran has an almighty heave at it. He clears his front leg, loses his shape and then swings at fresh air. Off stump goes for a cartwheel in the meantime! Rabada, you beauty!
0.2 Kagiso Rabada to KL Rahul, OUT! RAHUL DEPARTS! Banged into the track and that one follows Rahul as he backs away. He still has a huge swing at it and gets a top edge that goes high in the air before being pouched by deep square leg

Glenn Maxwell comes in to bat out the rest of the over. 
0.1 Kagiso Rabada to KL Rahul, full delivery on the pads and Rahul whips that one away with all his might to the right of deep square leg for a couple
So KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran come out to play the Super Over. Kagiso Rabada with the ball for Delhi.
Replays have also shown that the run that was called a short run was actually not so. It seems that Mayank has dragged his bat across the line! Drama at Dubai!

Marcus Stoinis making it clear that this is still his day in the end. Star turn with the bat is followed by a start turn with the ball.
19.6 Marcus Stoinis to Chris Jordan, SUPER OVER TIME FOLKS!! YOU CAN'T WRITE THIS SCRIPT! Low full toss on leg stump and Jordan hits it straight down the throat of the fielder at square leg. O GOODNESS! Stoinis moved the fielder there too! 

Only Delhi could have come so close to losing it and only KXIP could have tied this game!
That's the end of fantastic innings as Mayank Agarwal makes his way back for a well-made 89. But WHAT A GAME this is turning out to be. 

Mohammad Shami is the new man in but he only needs to run today.
19.5 Marcus Stoinis to Mayank Agarwal, OUT! O MY DEAR! O GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME! Low full toss outside off stump and Mayank looks to finish it off in style! He ends up lobbing it straight to deep point and KXIP now require 1 off the final ball! 
19.4 Marcus Stoinis to Mayank Agarwal, banged into the track outside off stump and Mayank fails to get any bat on it. 1 required off two balls now!
19.3 Marcus Stoinis to Mayank Agarwal, FOUR! MAYANK IS DOING IT IN STYLE NOW! Another half-volley outside off stump and Mayank slices it expertly past covers for another boundary! Just one required now!
