But what stood out was his exceptional skill in the Super Over. Here is how he did it:
Ball 1: Ferguson hit the timber as Warner gets beaten by a delivery that shaped away after pitching.
Ball 2: Ferguson sends a rocket to which young Abdul Samad swats but cannot connect, the sheer pace getting the better of him. However, he did get two 2 runs.
Ball 3: Ferguson shows his variation and hits the timber once again as Samad is outfoxed by a slower one which was full and on the stumps.
SRH’s Super Over score was 2/2 – the joint-lowest Super Over score in IPL equalling KXIP against DC earlier in the season.
