Kings XI Punjab made a sensational fightback before scripting a dramatic victory over Chennai Super Kings via one-over eliminator in an Indian Premier League match in Chennai on Sunday.
Put into bat, Kings XI made a modest 136 for eight and defeat wrote all over their face after the home team were 96 for one by the 14th over.
But after that the visitors made a remarkable fightback to restrict CSK to 136 for seven from the 20 overs to set up IPL III's first one-over eliminator.
In the super over bowl out, CSK made nine runs off the bowling of Juan Theron by losing two of their three nominated batsmen -- Matthew Hayden (0) and captain Suresh Raina (8) -- while Albie Morkel made one.
Batting second, Kings XI Punjab made 10 for one with Yuvraj Singh hitting a four from the fourth ball off Muttiah Muralitharan to set up the dramatic victory. Mahela Jayawrdene was out in the second ball after hitting a six off the first.
The third nominated batsman Irfan Pathan did not face a single ball in the super over.
With the win, Kings XI Punjab snapped their three-match losing streak and opened their account -- two points from four matches -- in IPL III.
For CSK, this was their second loss in four matches after their defeat to Deccan Chargers in their first match. PTI
