With Punjab fighting tooth and nail to win the match, Mohammed Shami defended five runs in the Super Over of pin-point yorkers at Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock, while Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal caught upto 12-run target in the second Super Over to help KXIP to win.

Post the game, the trio explained about the thrilling finish while Shami said it was initially difficult for him in the Super Over because the target was very less.

"It was difficult. When you get 14-15 runs to defend, you're more confident. But here, the margin of error was very less, so I had to focus on what's my strength. I believe in my yorkers, when I bowled the first ball I believed that I would nail all the six," Shami told Mayank.

"It was a very tight match. The Super Over also ended in a tie and we won it on the third time. I don't think there could be a better feeling," he added.

Further when Mayank asked Chris Gayle if he was nervous before the chase in the Super Over, Gayle said that he was more angry. "I wasn't nervous. I was a bit more angry that we had to get in this position. But it's a game of cricket and these things happen," said the West Indian batsman.

"Even if we were going out to bat, I was upset with you (Mayank) asking me, "Who's going to face the first ball?" I was like, "Mayank, you really asked the question? It's of course has to be the Boss playing the first ball!," he added.

Further in the conversation, Gayle also praised Mohammed Shami on his impressive bowling naming him the Man of the Match. "Shami bhai you're the Man of the Match. To defend six runs against Quinny and Rohit, that's fantastic. I've faced you in the nets so often, I know you can nail those yorkers. You brought it home for us. Chris Jordan came back with a second Super Over, did the job for us. Mayank, you saved five runs for us at the boundary. We're glad that we are part of the history and we are on the winning side," added Gayle.

Meanwhile, Mayank Agarwal stated that the match reminded him of the Delhi Capitals (DC) tie earlier this season, which also ended in a Super Over. "It did remind me of the game against Delhi Capitals. But Chris told me that just watch the ball and the rest is going to be fine. I had made up my mind to hit it out and not take twos and threes, regardless of where the ball came," said Mayank.
