In a match-winning bowling spell, he picked up the wickets of Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, David Warner, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad.
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.
