Delhi Capitals claim Super-Over win after Marcus Stoinis' late magic with bat and ball

Delhi Capitals 157 for 8 (Stoinis 53, Iyer 39, Pant 31, Shami 3-15, Cottrell 2-24) beat Kings XI Punjab 157 for 8 (Agarwal 89, Ashwin 2-2, Rabada 2-28, Stoinis 2-29) via the Super Over

Seam movement and bounce with the new ball. A 20-ball half-century that came out of nowhere. A two-wicket over ending with a nasty injury. A slow-burning, calculated rescue act that all but aced a tricky chase. A short run that wasn’t. Then, with one run required from three balls, somehow, Marcus Stoinis produced a dot and two wickets.

The second match of IPL 2020 contained pretty much everything, and defied any kind of explanation, before an anticlimactic Super Over handed two points to the Delhi Capitals and heartbreak to the Kings XI Punjab.
