A scintillating century by Quinton de Kock and a whirlwind half-century from James Neesham resulted in the Highveld Lions and Otago Volts finishing neck-and-neck in a thrilling Champions League Twenty20 2013 match at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. Otago prevailed, on the basis of fours hit (12 to 11) over the course of each team's 20-over innings, after the Super Overs also saw both teams finish with scores level. Each side had hit the same number of sixes (seven). That's how close it was. (Match highlights)
The Super Overs had tremendous drama, with Neesham and Brendon McCullum taking 13 off Sohail Tanvir, in what was a very good over under pressure. Neesham was handed the ball too, and de Kock seemed to settle the issue with a four and a six off the first two balls. However, Jean Symes was dismissed and with two needed off the final ball, Dwayne Pretorious was run out going for an impossible run. (Match in Pics)
The dramatic finish came about after de Kock's lone-hand 109 not out off 63 balls had propelled Lions to 167 for 4, and Neesham's 52 not out off 25 balls from No. 6 then ensured Otago finished on 167 for 7.
