Top 5 Nail Biting Finishes in Indian T20 Season History

The Indian T20 season is in talks of being rescheduled for the June-August duration. However, rumors are still around the fact that whether the Indian T20 season will happen or not. With so much postponement in world sporting events, the T20 World Cup is still scheduled to be at the same time of the year as decided. With the coronavirus outbreak taking rounds, we understand you must be missing fantasy cricket a lot.

So here’s a major Indian T20 season throwback for all you fantasy sports lovers. Taking a look at the top 5 nail biting finishes in the history of Indian T20 season cricket:

  •  Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight Riders, 2009

In what turned out to be the first-ever super over in the Indian T20 season, Rajasthan managed to sneak out almost an unwinnable victory. After Yusuf Pathan’s later onslaught in the first innings, Sourav Ganguly played a captain’s knock of 91 in 56 balls where he almost won the game but got dismissed on the penultimate ball of the last over. Chris Gayle hit 3 boundaries in a row but in reply, Yusuf Pathan for Rajasthan hit 16 runs in just 4 deliveries to seal the match.

  •  Deccan Chargers vs Kolkata Knight Riders, 2009

This match would always be remembered as Rohit Sharma’s entry to the list of the big boys in the Indian T20 season. 21 runs required off the last over and KKR had their best bowler Masrafe Mortaza ready. But ‘magician’ Rohit Sharma had other ideas. He smashed the Bangladeshi captain for boundaries and sixes around the ground and successfully took the Chargers home.

  • Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians, 2018

    With 11 needed off the last 6 balls, Ben Cutting was given the responsibility by captain Rohit Sharma to defend the target. With only1 wicket in their pocket Deepak Hooda and Stanlake did the unthinkable. Hooda hit Cutting for a six on the first ball and the pressure could be felt by Cutting as he gave away a wide on the very next ball. The last run was taken by a tail-ender slog by Stanlake that safely found its place in no-man’s land.

  • Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians, 2018

    The vintage Dhoni finish came out in the Indian T20 season of 2016 when 23 was required off the last 6 balls. Axar Patel was bowling to MS Dhoni and Dhoni was clear that he wasn’t going to give any strike to the tail-ender. He believed in his ability and took the game where 12 runs were required off 2 balls, and with 2 huge sixes sealed the deal in typical Dhoni style.

  • Royal Challengers vs Chennai Super Kings, 2019

    In a league game against RCB, Dhoni-led CSK required 25 off the last over and Umesh Yadav was ready with the ball. What was now in store, was the most thrilling match of the season. MS Dhoni hit the biggest six of the tournament (111m) and the entire fantasy cricket arena of the Indian T20 season got lit up. However, RCB won the match by just 1 run.
