The Kings XI Punjab came back from a seemingly hopeless position to score a thrilling victory against the Chennai Super Kings here late Sunday, the final result coming in the Super Over after the teams had tied the scores.
Asked to bat first, the Kings XI made 136 for eight in 20 overs and in reply the Super Kings collapsed from 65 for no loss to tie the scores with one delivery left.
Ravichandran Ashwin was then caught off the last ball with Super Kings on 136 for seven.
In the Super Over, the hosts opened with Albie Morkel and Hayden with Suresh Raina nominated as the third batsman and Muralitharan as their bowler. Kings XI named Mahela Jayawardene, Yuvraj Singh and Irfan Pathan as their batsmen with seamer Juan Theron to bowl.
Morkel took a single off the first and Hayden was bowled off the second. Raina ran two off the third delivery and then slammed a massive six off the fourth before being bowled next ball.
