Super overs in IPL: Thirteen Indian Premier League (IPL) games have ended with scores tied, making the Super Over decider the only way to decide the winner. The last time this happened was on Sunday, October 18, when both games of a doubleheader in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) went into the Super Overs, which made things even more exciting. The first Super Over between Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians also ended in a tie, so they had to play a second one.

The 13 matches that have reached Super Over are listed below:
Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders (23 April 2009):
When KKR lost to Rajasthan Royals in Cape Town, it was the first time that an IPL game ended in a tie. After both teams scored 150 runs in the 20 overs they were given, Rajasthan won. When the Royals needed 16, Yusuf Pathan hit Ajantha Mendis for scores of 6, 2, 6, and 4 to end the game.
Kings XI Punjab vs Chennai Super Kings (21 March 2010)
Even though MS Dhoni wasn’t there, the Chennai Super Kings couldn’t beat the team led by Kumar Sangakkara. They were playing on their home ground. KXIP won the Super Over with a score of 10 runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (7 April 2013):
In the 18th over, Vinay Kumar gave up 14 runs, but in the last over, he gave up only six runs, and SRH tied RCB’s score of 130 at the Rajiv Gandhi Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. But in the Super Over, Cameron White destroyed him by hitting two sixes and scoring 20 runs as RCB fell five runs short of the goal.
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Daredevils (16 April 2013):
Another tie happened between RCB and Delhi Daredevils at their home ground. But in the end, they came out on top. While trying to reach 153, RCB seemed to be in a good spot after Virat Kohli (65 runs) and AB de Villiers (39 runs) put together a 103-run partnership for the third wicket. However, the team went from 129-2 to 138-7 in a short amount of time. But the unlikely pair of Ravi Rampaul and Vinay Kumar helped them tie the score. Then, Rampaul did a great job with the ball to help the Bengaluru-based team win the Super Over. He took two wickets.
Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders (29 April 2014):
In Abu Dhabi, there was another tie between KKR and Rajasthan Royals. KKR needed 16 runs from 12 balls to win the game as they tried to reach 152. But James Faulkner had a great over, and KKR finished their 20 overs with 152/8. The second tie happened in the Super Over, where both teams scored 11 points. But, according to the boundary count rule, the Royals won.
Kings XI Punjab vs Rajasthan Royals (21 April 2015):
Kings XI Punjab was chasing 192 in Ahmedabad, but it looked like they were going to fall short until Axar Patel hit a boundary and sent the game to a Super Over. Then, in the Super Over, Shaun Marsh hit three fours in a row, setting a 16-run goal. After scoring six runs, the Royals lost two wickets, and Kings XI won the Super Over by nine runs.
Mumbai Indians vs Gujarat Lions (29 April 2017):
In Rajkot, both teams scored 153 runs in the 20 overs they were given. Ravindra Jadeja was brilliant when he came out and got Jasprit Bumrah and Krunal Pandya out with two direct hits, sending the game into the Super Over. But Bumrah made it so hard for the Lions to score that they couldn’t reach the 12-run goal in Rajkot.
Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders (30 April 2019):
Andre Russell’s 62 off 28 balls helped KKR reach 185 at Feroz Shah Kotla. Prithvi Shaw’s 99 off 54 balls helped Capitals draw level after 40 overs. KKR fell again after they failed to chase 11 runs against Kagiso Rabada.
Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (2 May 2019):
Manish Pandey hit Hardik Pandya for a six on the last ball of their innings as they tried to get to 163. This sent the “Eliminator” to a Super Over. But Bumrah only gave up eight runs, which the Mumbai Indians were able to get in three balls.
Royal Challenger Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians (28 September 2020):
Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch, and AB de Villiers helped RCB record 201/3. Kieron Pollard and Ishan Kishan combined 119 for the fifth wicket for Mumbai Indians. Kishan missed 100 by one run and Pollard finished undefeated on 60 off 24 balls for 201/5. Kohli and de Villiers easily got Bangalore to eight in the Super Over.
