2015-04-22 00:00

THE Kings XI Punjab ended the Raja­sthan Royals winning streak through the first 2015 Indian Premier League Super Over at the Sardar Patel Stadium in ­Ahmedabad yesterday.

The Kings XI had won the toss and elected to field first with the Royals posting a daunting 191 for six in their 20 overs but Punjab were able to reply with 191 for six as Axar Patel struck the final ball for four to send the match ­into a Super Over.

South Africa’s Chris Morris trapped David Miller dead in front with the first ball but then man-of-the-match Shaun Marsh smashed three boundaries as the Kings XI totalled 15 in their effort.

Mitchell Johnson, in reply, then clean bowled Shane Watson with a peach of a yorker delivery. Steve Smith then struck a boundary off the next ball ­before taking a single.

James Faulkner then swung and missed a slower ball before charging down the pitch only to be run out trying to make his ground with a direct throw from wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha to end the contest.
