After an exciting season-opener, the Indian T20 League amped the action a few notches higher with a match that, for a while, seemed like no one wanted to win!

Delhi, heading in as the favourites over Punjab, started off by setting an unflattering record with their worst-ever Powerplay score in the UAE at 23-3. However, Marcus Stoinis picked up the pieces with an impressive half-century that helped Delhi set a target of 158 for Punjab.

If Marcus was Delhi's star, then Mayank Agarwal was Punjab's. After taking the Delhi bowlers to the cleaners, showmanship got the better of him, and Punjab, as Chris Jordan got himself caught trying to earn the one run they needed to win.

Enter the Super Over and an extra from Shami during Delhi's turn ended up settling the Northern Derby in their favour!

For a game peppered with so many ups and downs. the social media reaction was just as entertaining, and we gathered up some of the best:
