Super over Seals Kolkata Knight Riders fate

Yusuf Pathan blasted 18 runs off four balls as Rajasthan Royals snatched victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders in a 'super over' after their match ended in a tie.

Kolkata needed only seven to win off the last over; sadly, Ishanth Sharma was run out attempting to finish the winning run of the last ball of the match. This left the teams tied at 150 runs and brought the super over into play.

KKR scored 15 for 1 thanks to Chris Gayles 3 successive fours in the super over. However, Yusuf Pathan of RR, who took the strike against Ajantha Mendis of KKR in the super over blasted 6, 2, 6 and 4 and ensured that Rajasthan Royals won with ease.

WHICH OF THE MULTIPLE CAPTAIN SHOULD TAKE CREDIT FOR BOWLING MENDIS IN THE DEATH. THE DECISION IS NOT A BAD ONE BUT IT MISFIRED IN THE FACE OF YUSUFS ASSAULT.
