In IPL 2022, Lucknow Super Giants defeated Punjab Kings by 20 runs in a low scoring match on Friday. Batting first, KL Rahul’s Lucknow team scored 153 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. But Punjab Kings could not chase the target and fell 20 runs short. Even though Lucknow won the match, captain KL Rahul was unhappy with the players, especially with the batsmen. KL Rahul gave full credit for this victory to the bowlers.

Batting first in this match, Lucknow had scored 99 runs for the loss of 2 wickets in 13 overs. It looked that the team will go on to score 170 runs. But as soon as Quinton de Kock (46) was dismissed, Lucknow’s batting stumbled and the team lost 4 wickets within 13 runs. However, Lucknow Super Giants could score only 153 runs. Credit to the bowling unit, they bowled brilliantly and Punjab Kings were restricted to 133 runs.

Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul said after the match, “: I was disappointed and fuming at the end of the first innings. Stupid cricket with the bat. It does happen but we did talk about it at the time-out. We did talk that we can defend 160 as this wasn’t a great pitch. The crucial runs at the back end and then the execution with the ball helped us win. We need to get better with the bat. Half-time, when Quinny and Deepak were batting they paced it really really well to get to 60 in 9 overs on a tricky wicket. Had we batted smartly, we could have gotten to 180-190. The way we responded with the ball was phenomenal. Krunal has been brilliant throughout the tournament. This season he has really worked on his bowling. Bowling economically is important but he has been giving us two three wickets in the middle overs.”

KL Rahul praised the bowlers of the team. He said that Krunal (Pandya) has done well in this entire IPL. He has bowled economical and has taken wickets at crucial times. Apart from this, the way the fast bowlers bowled, our team has benefited a great from that. Rahul said, “We need to understand the conditions well in any match. We should know when to play the game.”

For Lucknow, Krunal took 2 wickets for 11 runs in 4 overs. At the same time, Mohsin Khan took 3 wickets for 24 runs in 4 overs. Dushmanta Chamira was also successful in sending two Punjab batsmen to the pavilion.
