The shortest format of cricket has been one of the most amazing formats as well. It’s short, it’s fast, it’s intriguing, and it’s entertaining. Taking the T20 format further is the IPL which has taken this game to a whole new level. Cricket and talent can be seen at its best in IPL.

This format of the game is so involving and competitive that you cannot afford to relax even for a single delivery. The game changes every over and the teams that has played well for more over’s is the one that comes out on top. But there are instances when both teams end up with equal scores at the end of twenty over’s. Which takes the game further to super over, which is even more exciting as all you got is 6 deliveries and 2 wickets to make it count.

Yesterday’s match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab was no different, as IPL witnessed 6th super over in its 8th season. Some good striking by Shaun Marsh and intelligent bowling by Johnson took Punjab through and gave the fans a lot to cheer about. In this article we bring to you the list of super overs in IPL and which team has managed to win at last.
