10 Best Tweets On The First Super Over Of IPL 2020

IPL 2020: In a classic game of cricket, Mayank Agarwal played a gem of a knock to take Punjab to the closing line and it was Agarwal again whose ambitious howler, in the end, cost Punjab the game. With wickets tumbling regularly at the other end, Agarwal steadied the ship with a decent partnership with Krishnappa Gowtham and then followed it with some rollicking bashing of the Delhi bowlers to take Punjab within inching distance of victory.

However, it was Marcus Stoinis who came up trumps as he managed to remove Agarwal with a tempting delivery and followed it with the wicket of Chris Jordan who was caught by Kagiso Rabada in the circle. A game that swung in Punjab’s way three balls prior, was squandered away by an over-ambitious Mayank followed by some pathetic decisions in the super over.

 

Already missing the likes of Gayle, they opted with Rahul to open them over when they had a certain Maxwell up their sleeves. A set Mayank Agarwal could have also walked in but he was replaced with a clueless Nicholas Pooran who was outclassed by Rabada’s brutal pace. With 3 to win from 6 balls, Rishabh Pant won it comfortably for Delhi who was well out of the equation from the apparent look of the game in the last three balls of the game. What a start to IPL 2920!!

We will look at the top ten tweets on the first super over of IPL 2020.

An exasperated fan expressed his rage at Punjab losing the game, claiming, “Why Kings 11 not used Mayank in super over…. Scripted IPL for satta bajar”

A fan wanted to add some humour in the mix and tweeted, “Rabada while playing super over in ipl 2020”

Harbhajan Singh tweeted, “What a start to the #IPL .. two great back to back games!!tonight a super game to end with a super over! Fab inning @mayankcricket! Whose going to win you think??”

There was a miss from the umpire’s end which would have otherwise not dragged the game into the super over. A fan pointed out, “What a final over in the IPL, a dot ball and 2 wickets to finish takes us to a super over! @lionsdenkxip have the right to be extremely miffed with the umpires though, this was given a short run….”

Another user posted, “The first of many “what just happened” moments in IPL 2020 1 to win off 3 balls. Dot, wicket, wicket. Super over.”

There were congratulatory tweets too that read, “Just amazing Second match of IPL 2020 First super over and DC won it Congrates”

Another user was angry at the umpire as he stated, “An umpiring error in the 18th over of the match. Mayank completed the run but umpire gave 1 run short. This is rediculos. Punjab should have won the match with 3 bowls left and there would have been no super over.”

A few users tried to expose that how pathetic was Punjab’s showdown in the super over as one posted, “First Super over of Ipl 2020 between DC & KXIP * Other Teams :”

Someone took to an English tirade and rhetoric at the same time, posting, “How the hell was that Short run,how the hell was 1 off 3 not made, why the hell Mayank didn’t come in Super over, How the hell Rabada is such a Beauty, How the hell IPL is such a legendary tournament…….”

The venom at the umpires was spewed mercilessly as another user commented, “Umpire played basketball game with kxip team. The run at 19th over was not rewarded but it was absolutely correctly grounded by jorden. And now after super over kl is arguing with umpires. When will this bull shit act by umpires stop!??”

A Delhi fan commented, “#DilDilli what a match. Fantastic innings By Stoinis & Rabada the super over. Great start of IPL weak.”
