The Indian Premier League (IPL) has acted as a source of joy and excitement for its fans over the years. This excitement reaches the next level when the match goes to the last ball. The fans have most enjoyed those matches when both teams end up with the same total and the result is decided with a Super Over. This is the reason why neutral fans hope for a tie in the final over in case of close matches.
In this article, we will list out all the tied matches which have happened in IPL history whose results have been decided with a Super Over. The first-ever Super Over in the IPL happened in the 2009 season when the match between KKR and RR ended up in a tie. Both teams had scored 150 runs in their innings in their respective 20 overs.
In the Super Over, KKR scored 15 runs with Chris Gayle hitting three fours. For the Rajasthan team, Yusuf Pathan smashed the required 16 runs in only four balls against Ajantha Mendis to help the team win the game. In the next season, Punjab and CSK played a Super Over as they ended up on the same total of 136 runs. Punjab won the match in the Super Over chasing the required 10 runs in four balls against Muttiah Muralitharan.
For the 2011 and 2012 seasons, there were no tied matches but in 2013, the results of two matches were decided in Super Overs. In the 21st match in 2013, RCB scored 152/7 in a chase of 153 runs against Delhi. RCB needed to chase 12 runs in six balls, and Chris Gayle along with AB de Villiers, went out to bat. On the first four balls, only three runs were scored but AB de Villiers hit consecutive sixes on the last two balls to win the game for his team.
In the same season, RCB again played a Super Over against SRH in a tied match. However, this time they lost as they failed to chase the required 20 runs in six balls. In IPL 2014, RR won the super over against KKR with the help of some superb batting from Steve Smith. After a gap of two years, a Super Over occurred in IPL 2017 with Gujarat Lions and Mumbai Indians.
Mumbai won the game courtesy of sharp bowling from Jasprit Bumrah in the Super Over. In IPL 2019, DC won the game in the Super Over against KKR as Kagiso Rabada displayed his skills with the ball in the end. Later, MI won the tied match in the Super over against SRH in the same season.
IPL 2020 season was the most exciting in terms of close matches as the results of four matches were decided in Super Overs. In fact, the game between Mumbai Indians and Punjab saw two overs with Punjab ending up with a win.
