A Super Over takes place to decide the winner if the fixture ends in a tie. The team scoring the most runs in the super over secures a victory in the match. In 2008, the International Cricket Council decided to replace the Bowl-out with the super over.

In the Indian Premier League history, a super over has taken place on 14 occasions. The 2020 season saw the record number of four super overs. Interestingly, Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings ended up playing two super overs in the same game in 2020. In this edition of the tournament, all the teams have quality batting as well as bowling options, which will be crucial to securing a victory in the one-over affair.

Here are the Ranking teams based on their super over combination in IPL 2022:

The Sunrisers Hyderabad is ranked 10th in this list due to the comparatively weaker batting options, with two out of three players not known for their hitting abilities. However, SRH have quality bowling options with the experience to excel in crucial situations.

Batters- Pooran, Williamson, Aiden Markram
Bowler- Bhuvneshwar Kumar

The team is likely to open with Nicholas Pooran and Kane Williamson on an occasion of super over, with the former’s proven track record of being destructive and the latter having the craft and skill to maneuver the ball. Protea batter Aiden Markram could be the third batsman if a wicket falls.

The bowling option to contain runs and take wickets in the super over for Sunrisers Hyderabad will be the experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Over the years, he has put in hard yards to perfect his skill to bowl yorkers in a consistent manner and has proved himself.
