How did Royal Challengers Bangalore won in the Super Over against Mumbai Indians

In another unbelievably thrilling game of this Indian Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Mumbai Indians in a Super Over at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday, 28 September.
After being put in to bat, captain Virat Kohli could only manage another single-digit score but three batsmen notched half-centuries as RCB posted 201/3. An outstanding partnership between Kieron Pollard (24-ball 60) and Ishan Kishan (58-ball 99) then helped MI close-in on the target, but the duo couldn’t help the team cross the line.
After a dramatic 20th over, MI finished on 201/5, sending the match into the second Super Over of this IPL edition.
Mumbai posted 7/1 in their one over, a target Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers managed to achieve in six balls, thanks to a wonderful bowling spell by Navdeep Saini.
In both the team’s third game of the season, RCB registered their second win while Mumbai Indians slumped to their second loss
After Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to chase, RCB captain Virat Kohli said the team was happy with the outcome of the toss as the team’s preference, going into this game, was to bat first.
Chasing RCB’s 201, Mumbai Indians didn’t get the start that they were hoping for. Washington Sundar removed captain Rohit Sharma for an 8-ball 8
On his eighth delivery in the league, IPL debutant and Sri Lankan cricketer Isuru Udana removed Suryakumar Yadav for a duck.
An inspired bowling from Navdeep Saini in the 19th over ensured Royal Challengers were in the game by the end of 20 overs.
With Super Over specialist Jasprit Bumrah bowling, RCB batsmen Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers took a single each on the first two balls. De Villiers was given an out on the third ball but a DRS review showed that the bat had not touched the ball.
He then smashed a four and took a single to put Virat back on strike, with RCB needing one run off the last ball to win.
Kohli smashed a boundary as RCB registered their second win of the season.
In the Super Over, RCB’s Navdeep Saini bowled a disciplined line and length and conceded only seven runs. Kohli and AB de Villiers then scored the required runs off pacer Jasprit Bumrah to win two points for RCB.
With this win, RCB moved to third place in the league’s standing while Rohit Sharma-led MI slipped dropped a place to fifth.This was the second super over of this edition's Dream 11 IPL 2020.
Given RCB’s travails with catching and fielding in general in this tournament so far, Pawan Negi was easily one of their most valuable players. The substitute’s three out-of-the world catches in the deep put his team in a position of ascendancy for the better part of the match tonight.
In the 16th over of MI’s chase, he spilled a full blooded Kieron Pollard drive against Adam Zampa and tipped it over the boundary line for a six. Even if he was kicking himself for the dropped chance, Negi didn’t show it. When he took those catches too, he didn’t go for over-the-top celebrations.
Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli hailed young pacer Navdeep Saini's brilliant Super Over that helped his side win a pulsating IPL contest against Mumbai Indians on Monday.
