A Tie (Designed?)

So a tie early in the league, a designed one no doubt. You just watch the replays of the last over critically and you would know. But whether designed to be a tie from the beginning or towards the end, can't say, though my hunch is  that it was a tie designed to be a tie before the start of the match. Could well not be so, and the fixers' books might have led to the end result to be a tie, as explained somewhere in 'Inside The Boundary Line.' We are talking of RCB vs SRH match played on 7/4/2013 at Hyderabad.

The big guns of RCB batting flopped, and they could manage only 130 runs in 20 overs. In the innings break, I chanced to listen Sidhu tell the viewers in his sure style that the RCB were definitely short by 30 runs. As usual for the much feted experts, he proved to be well off the mark.

Not discussing sessions etc here, as in a tie all bets stand neutralized.

And SRH was meant to win in the super over.
