Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) beat Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by two runs — or two centimetres — in Saturday’s IPL match. Glenn Maxwell got here inside tantalising attain of hitting a six off the final ball to take the match to a Super Over, and the gamers waited anxiously after the final ball, until replays zoomed in to indicate that the ball had landed simply throughout the boundary.
What a match
How can they free the match
Even after kl Rahul glorious innings
Not even tremendous over

KXIP have been consigned to their sixth defeat in seven matches on Saturday, as they managed to lose one more match from a seemingly snug scenario.
KXIP wanted 21 off 16 deliveries to win, following a 115-run opening stand between KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. However, issues modified thereon. Number four batsman Simranjeet Singh performed out three dot balls after which took a single off the final ball of the 18th over. KL chopped one on to his stumps within the 19th over, plunging the group into surprising disaster.

With 7 runs to win off the final ball, Maxwell swung over covers as Sunil Narine bowled the 20th. As the ball landed, there was preliminary confusion. The on-air commentator thought it was a six. Umpire Chris Gaffaney signalled 4. Narine was fast to shake Maxwell’s arms, however the gamers then waited for the replay. Which quickly confirmed that the umpire’s name had been appropriate — by inches.
