1: KXIP vs MI, 2020
It had to be on the list for sure. This game was probably the best game of T20 ever played, leave alone the IPL, leave alone any other league, this was the game where history was made and how.
Two super overs, two teams not willing to give up, this match had it all and at the end of it, we all felt we have aged a little.
KXIP won this encounter and with this, they have managed to stay alive in the competition.
2: RR vs KKR, 2014
This was a super over where smartness overshadowed power. In a game that was widely dominated by KKR for a large part of the match. They inexplicably failed to cross the line while chasing a modest target (153) set by RR.
The drama continued in the super over too when RR where left to win 3 off the last ball and Steve Smith cleverly tapped the bowl to come back for a second and sealed the deal for his team. (2 runs was enough since tied super over back then meant the team having higher boundary count won)
3: KXIP vs RR, 2015
In this high scoring encounter, KXIP needed 9 off the last 3 balls (target being 192) and Axar Patel, playing for Punjab back then managed to hit a boundary off the last ball to level the scores and take the game to the super over.
Punjab lost David Miller off the first ball during their super over but thanks to Shaun Marsh’s boundary striking they could set a target of 16 for RR
In a case of a funny coincidence, RR lost Shane Watson too in the first ball of their chase and eventually went on to lose the match, but this was one hell of a game that went right down the wire.
4: MI vs GL, 2017
This was a match which MI should have won comfortably chasing 154 to win, but thanks to the fielding of Ravindra Jadeja and some needless panic the game moved onto a super over where they managed to put up 11 runs on the board.
That is then when the magic of Jasprit Bumrah happened. He conceded 4 extras and yet allowed just 2 runs off the bat (Aaron Finch and Brendon McCullum combined) to help MI win by 5 runs, that was one fine over by the Yorker king.
5: Delhi vs KKR, 2019
This was also one of those games which should not have ideally gone on to the super over but thanks to some questionable batting under pressure Delhi managed to take this game till the super over.
Delhi managed to score just 10 in their allotted super over and KKR came all guns blazing with Andre Russell waiting to launch. He even stuck a boundary to send shivers down Delhi’s spine but Rabada bowled a peach of a Yorker to dismiss him and won the super over for his team. For the sheer brilliance of individuals in that game, this match features on our list.
