In the first ever Super Over of 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL), it was the Delhi Capitals (DC), who emerged victorious against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). DC scored 10 runs off their over, while KKR in the end fell short by 3 runs in the end. It was Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer, who opened in the Super Over and KKR opted for Prasidh Krishna to bowl the over. For DC, it was Kagiso Rabada who bowled the over, while Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa were the ones handed the responsibility to chase the runs down.

Prithvi Shaw’s 99 off 55 guides Delhi Capitals (DC) 12 fours and 3 sixes punctuated Shaw’s innings. With this win, DD have now won 2 out of their 3 matches, while KKR suffer their first loss of the season. After losing Shikhar Dhawan, skipper Shreyas Iyer and Shaw put on 89 runs for the second wicket. Once Shreyas was dismissed, Shaw took charge and finished the game in style, while Rishabh Pant played second fiddle. DC were given a lifeline when Shreyas was dropped by Shubman Gill, but then the teenager redeemed himself by taking a good catch in the deep. When Shaw was dismissed, DC needed 12 from 9 deliveries and then needed 6 0ff the final over. However, Kuldeep Yadav restricted the batsmen to take the match into Super Over.

After being reduced to 61 for 5 in the 10th over by Delhi Capitals (DC), it was once again Andre Russell, who turned things around for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) – along with Dinesh Karthik – who resurrected the innings and took their team to 185 for 8. Russell, slammed 6 sixes and 4 fours and smashed his way to a 28-ball 62, while Karthik scored a mature 50 off 36 balls. Their partnership of 95 runs for the sixth wicket, propelled KKR to a competitive score. Sandeep Lamichhane was the pick of the bowlers with figures for 1 for 29, while Harshal Patel, who picked up the wickets of Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana, finished on the expensive side with figures of 2 for 40.
