Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) lost their first match in IPL 2020 to Delhi Capitals (DC) in a Super Over on Sunday. The contest, which looked one-sided after Delhi dismissed 5 of Punjab batsmen on just 55 runs, was brought to life by Mayank Agarwal.

Agarwal scored 89 off 60 deliveries while chasing 158 runs. Eventually, KXIP couldn't score 1 run off the last 2 deliveries off Marcus Stoinis and lost a wicket off both the deliveries.

New Zealand cricketer Jimmy Neesham couldn't believe the team lost in a super over and he posted a funny reaction on Twitter.

Neesham was part of the World Cup 2019 final which New Zealand lost in the Super Over. New Zealand hasn't had luck in the Super Overs in the last one year as they also lost two back-to-back T20I matches against India in the tie-breaker earlier in 2020.

Posting a gif of famous American actor, Jim Carey, Neesham tried to express his feelings and fans couldn't stop laughing. "Oh come on!", said Carey in the gif.

Punjab will play their second match on September 24 against Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2020.
