LUCKNOW SUPER GIANTS WON BY 56 RUNS
LUCKNOW SUPER GIANTS
LOCATION – Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali
There have only been two IPL innings with a 257-point total! Kyle Mayers’ aggressive bowling from ball one gave LSG a great start. While Badoni, who was moved up the order, added 43 from 24 balls, Mayers smashed 54 from 24. Since Stoinis and Pooran wasted no time and kept the tempo high, the middle order was in a similar frame of mind. Pooran scored 45 at a 236 percent damaging strike rate and Stoinis added 70 (40). Rahul Chahar was the only bowler who conceded less than 8 r.p.o. It was never going to be easy chasing almost 13 r.p.o, especially after losing openers early in the powerplay. However, Atharva Taide’s heroic effort in reaching his first IPL half-century impressed everyone. The middle order hitters all put in strong cameo performances, but in the end, the asking rate proved to be too high. The most effective bowler for LSG was Naveen ul Haq, who took three wickets for just 30 runs in four overs. A victory by a margin of 56 runs will undoubtedly increase LSG’s NRR, which will be beneficial to them in the tournament’s later rounds.
The player of the game is Marcus Stoinis.
Marcus Stoinis said “”The finger appears to be fine. We’ll conduct scans and check. My strategy was straightforward; all I tried to do was form alliances. Ayush Badoni also got off to a fast start. I do prefer to assume accountability for starting the game and finishing it. Throughout my career, I have batted everywhere, and I am at ease in any position the franchise asks me to fill. I was putting some swings into the nets. They were delighted and gave me the new ball as well“”.
