What a thriller in just the 2nd game of IPL 2020 between KXIP and Delhi Capitals. KXIP looked down and out at 55/5 in chase of 158 before Mayank Aggarwal played a brilliant knock of 89 to take his team to just a run away from a win. But Punjab lost 2 wickets in the last 3 balls to see the match gets tied. K Rabada then took 2 wickets for 2 runs in super over to give an easy chase for Delhi Capitals. Here are the statistics of the match.
30 runs Chris Jordan conceded the joint most runs – 30 runs - in the 20th over of IPL history. Marcus Stoinis and Anrich Nortje combined to take 30 runs. Jordan shares this dubious record with Ashok Dinda of Rising Pune Supergiant who conceded 30 runs in the 20th over of the 2017 IPL match against Hardik Pandya of Mumbai Indians.
