Back in 2014, Sunil Narine while playing for the Guyana Amazon Warriors bowled the first ever wicket maiden super over in the history of t20 internationals. Narine with his magic gave his side a very important win.

For the Red Steel, it just was no their night. Dwayne Bravo the captain of the Red Steele knew it when the game tied after the match completed and super over gameplay was called to decide the winner amongst the two teams.

Red Steel had to defend 118 runs and in the final over which was bowled by Bravo, Warriors were 11 runs behind. But then the Warriors made those 11 runs and tied the match. On the last ball Red Steele wicket keeper, Pooran dropped a simple catch.

He then went on to face Narine in the super over. In the match, Pooran hit 11 runs off 4 balls against Narine but this was different here. Narine beats Pooran on the first four balls and on the fifth made him caught by Martin Guptill at long off.

Pooran was batting recklessly. He was swinging cross batted shots angst Narine who was turning the ball massively on a turning track. One after the other each ball went past the bat and the pressure increased rapidly.

On the fifth Pooran did the right shot as he went on the off side with the spin but this time he was just not lucky enough to get the ball over the line. The last ball was faced by Ross Taylor and there was hardly anything left he could do. 12 runs were needed on the last ball and Narine gave him a Dosra which he missed.
