Sunday turned into 'Super Sunday' after Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) had to play two super overs for the outcome in IPL 2020. Chasing 177, KXIP could only equal MI's score and ended up with 176/6 on the board.

New Zealand cricketer Jimmy Neesham, who is part of the KXIP squad, was numb after two consecutive super overs.

The Kiwi still can't get over the World Cup 2019 final loss and whenever there's a super over, cricket fans on social media don't forget to remember Neesham. He also likes to joke about it and Twitterati loves it.

KXIP won the match in the second super over and then came posts from Neesham. A fan wanted to know how he keeps himself calm in such nerve-wracking matches. To which, Neesham replied, "I am dead inside."

The KXIP all-rounder had another post with a gif attached. "Hey, a second super over", he wrote with a gif from the movie Dumb and Dumber. The character says 'Cool' nervously. 

It was Punjab's third win in the tournament. They have defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) twice before victory over MI.
