Hardik Pandya would’ve felt like a culprit when he conceded a six on the last ball of the innings to Manish Pandey when the Sunrisers Hyderabad needed seven runs to win. However, shortly after the clock struck midnight, the all-rounder bounced back. He started Mumbai Indians’ chase of nine runs in the Super Over with a straight six off Rashid Khan. MI needed only two more balls to complete a victory and seal their berth in the playoffs.
Here are all the lesser known stats recorded during Mumbai Indians’ victory in the Super Over:
Meet the worst bowler of the IPL:
Barinder Singh Sran, the left-arm pacer playing for Mumbai Indians has picked up only 18 wickets in 24 IPL matches. He averages 42.05 with the ball and concedes runs at an economy of 9.40. Among the players who bowled over 400 deliveries in the IPL, Sran’s economy is the worst.
Guptill, debut games and SRH connection:
Martin Guptill made his debut for the Sunrisers Hyderabad with this game. This is Guptill’s 3rd IPL franchise having represented Mumbai Indians in 2016 and Kings XI Punjab in 2017. His debut matches for MI and KXIP turned out to be games against the Sunrisers. Interestingly, SRH spoiled the party for Guptill in his debut games by defeating his teams while Guptill’s debut for SRH ended in a defeat for SRH in the Super Over.
A rare tie in Mumbai:
The tied game between the Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad is the first ever Tied match in the IPL at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The venue stood host for as many as 71 matches in the IPL prior to this game but never witnessed a tied match. Overall, this is only the 2nd Tied game in the Twenty20 format at the Wankhede out of the 115 matches hosted by this venue. The other tied T20 here was recorded in 2007 during a game between Gujarat and Saurashtra.
De Kock’s struggles:
Quinton de Kock recorded one of the 55 instances when a player remained unbeaten after playing 58 or more balls in an IPL inning. However, he is alongside three other players who couldn’t even score 70 despite being unbeaten facing 58+ balls in an IPL inning.
Robin Uthappa scored 60* off 58 for PWI in 2012 against Delhi Daredevils/Capitals which resulted in a loss. HH Gibbs scored a 58-ball 66* for MI in the same season against KKR while playing a support act to Rohit Sharma who scored a century. Jacques Kallis also scored 69* off 59 balls for RCB against MI in 2009.
