The sixth edition of the Indian Premier League saw its first Super Over when Hyderabad finished on 130 against Bangalore. The match was eventually sealed through the Super Over when visitors Bangalore failed to reach the target of 21. (BCCI Image)
Bangalore had won the toss and had chosen to bat.
The start was not great for the team as Chris Gayle was dismissed early. The Jamaican scored just 1. (BCCI image)
Tillakaratne Dilshan - the other opener - was hardly effective either. The Sri Lankan scored 5 off 9 before being dismissed by Ishant Sharma. (BCCI image)
Skipper Virat Kohli took control of the side and hit a confident 46 off 44 which was more symbolic of his responsible attitude than his aggressive nature. (BCCI image)
Hyderabad bowlers kept to their task and soon broke through once again. While Kohli fell to Ashish Reddy, Henriques fell to Sharma. (BCCI image)
Ishant Sharma claimed one more to finish the innings with three against his name.
Bangalore managed to set a target of 131. (BCCI image)
The start to the chase was not auspicious for Hyderabad but Reddy managed to score 23 off 21 after losing his fellow opener - Parthiv Patel - early. (BCCI image)
Bangalore, much like Hyderabad bowlers, kept taking wickets and though there were some worthy knocks, kept the pressure up. (BCCI image)
Henriques (in pic) and Jaydev Unadkat claimed two wickets each as Hyderabad went onto score exactly 130 from 20 after losing seven batsmen. (BCCI image)
In the Super Over, Cameron White powered Hyderabad to 20 - a total which was too much for even Gayle who struck a six for Bangalore though his side lost. (BCCI image)
