Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) defeated Mumbai Indians in the Super Over in Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Dubai International Stadium on Monday.
Mumbai was behind all through their chase of 202, needing 90 off the last five overs. They were still behind when Kieron Pollard reiterated his hitting prowess by smacking around Adam Zampa and Yuzvendra Chahal for an imagination-defying 49 runs in two overs during his unbeaten 60 off 24 balls.
They were still behind when Ishan Kishan – back in the XI due to a Saurabh Tiwary niggle – was out for 99 to make it five needed off the last ball. Pollard hit a four, of course he did, to bring the match to a Super Over.
