It took only two matches for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 to witness the first tie of the season as Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab scored same number of runs. The Delhi team which batted first reached 100 for the loss of six wickets in 17 overs. But they ended up getting 57 runs in the last three overs thanks to a 21-ball 53 from Marcus Stoinis.

Kings XI kept losing wickets and the pace of their inning went in the same manner as that of Delhi. But Mayank Agarwal’s acceleration in the end nearly won the match for KXIP. They lost two wickets in the last two balls when one run was needed. The match went into the Super over where Kagiso Rabada conceded just two runs.

Here are all the statistical highlights from Delhi Capitals’ victory against Kings XI Punjab during the Superover:

A rare tie in both runs and wickets:

2 – This match between DC and KXIP became only the 2nd Tied match in the history of IPL where both the teams scored the same runs and lost the same number of wickets.

Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab scored 191/6 each during the 2015 edition game in Ahmedabad. Overall, this match was the 10th game in the IPL history to end in a Tie.


First loss in a Super Over for KXIP:

1 – This is the first time where Kings XI Punjab ended up on the losing side during a Super over in the IPL. They defeated CSK in 2010 and RR in 2015 during the Super over previously.


Stoinis’ quick-fire knock:

252.38 – Only two players for Delhi franchise had a higher strike rate during an IPL innings than Marcus Stoinis’ 252.38 during his 21-ball 53. Rishabh Pant struck at 288.88 during his 27-ball 78* against MI last year while Chris Morris had a strike rate of 256.25 during his unbeaten 32-ball 82 against Gujarat Lions in 2016.

20 – Marcus Stoinis’ 20-ball fifty is the joint 3rd fastest for the Delhi franchise in the IPL. It is also by far the quickest to come during an IPL match outside India.


Costliest finish ever:

30 – The 30 runs conceded by Chris Jordan in Delhi Capitals’ last over were the most any player conceded during the 20th over in the IPL. Ashok Dinda did concede 30 runs in the 2017 season game against Hardik Pandya but the last run came through a bye. These are the only two instances of as many as 30 runs coming in the 20th over of an IPL innings.


Mayank’s best ever:

89 – The 89-run knock by Mayank Agarwal in this match is now his highest score in the IPL surpassing the 68 which he made for the Delhi franchise against Kings XI Punjab during the 2015 edition.


A strong finish by Stoinis:

49 – Runs Marcus Stoinis has scored in the last three overs of the Delhi’s innings. It is the 3rd most runs scored by any player between 18th and 20th over of an IPL innings. Virat Kohli scored 57 runs against Gujarat Lions in the 2016 edition game while Andre Russell amassed 50 runs in the last year’s home game against MI.

Stoinis scored 38 runs in the last two overs which are the joint 3rd most across 19th and 20th overs of an IPL innings. Virat Kohli scored 44 runs during his century against Gujarat Lions in 2017 while Brendon McCullum struck 39 runs in the inaugural IPL match. Chris Morris also scored 38 runs in the 2017 edition against RPS for Delhi franchise.


Yet another captain for KXIP:

12 – KL Rahul became the 12th player to lead Kings XI Punjab in an IPL match. The KXIP team now has 12 captains in the IPL; the most number of skippers for any team in this league surpassing Delhi franchise’s 11 captains.

Dhawan’s runouts:

15 – Shikhar Dhawan now has been dismissed runout on 15 occasions in the IPL; the 2nd most number of such dismissals for any player in this league. Gautam Gambhir leads the list with 16 runout dismissals in the IPL. Last time Dhawan was run out in an IPL match was back in the 2017 edition.
