Chennai Super Kings (CSK) replaced Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) table while SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) fell six points behind the top three.

RCB eventually fell to third at the end of Sunday's round of matches after their win over SRH in the season's first Super Over.


Ravindra Jadeja's all-round brilliance helped CSK beat RCB by 69 runs in the first match on Sunday. Jadeja smashed 62 runs off 28 balls, of which 37 came off the final over of the CSK innings. He then took three wickets for 13 runs.

Later in the day, Kane Williamson's unbeaten 66 helped SRH tie the scores and force their match against DC into Super Over. SRH batted first and managed to score seven runs, which DC chased down over the course of their Super Over.

Super Over

Delhi Capitals (DC) shouldn't have allowed their match against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) go into the Super Over, said Shikhar Dhawan, who stood for DC captain Rishabh Pant in the post-match presentation ceremony.

Presenter and former spinner Murali Karthik said that Pant was feeling "unwell" after the match.

"It was a thrilling game and shouldn't have gone to the Super Over. We should have won it easily, but we made few mistakes but that's part of the journey. I feel that the two boundaries which Avesh (Khan) got hit, we should have contained them. But, it's part of the game. We were dominating the game whole time, shouldn't have let it go that way in the end," said Dhawan.

DC won the match in the Super Over, the first of the season, as Kane Williamson's unbeaten 66 off 51 balls helped SRH tie the scores.

"It was very tough to bat specially after the powerplay, turning and holding. Kane Williamson played a good knock, he's a champion player and he always shows his class. It's good to win the game in the end. We made it quite thrilling going to the Super Over and chasing it down," said Dhawan.
