LSG beat RCB by 18 runs KL Rahul’s Lucknow Supergiants will host Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bangalore in Lucknow on Monday.
Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore highlights Score: RCB did the impossible by defending 127 runs. They kept chipping away with the wickets which kept increasing the pressure on LSG batters. Karn Sharma has been the pick of the bowlers as he picked up both Stoinis and Pooran that took any chance of LSG winning away after early wickets. A special mention should also go to KL Rahul who despite struggling with an injury came out to bat. The win for RCB keeps them alive in the tournament and makes it more interesting for playoff qualification.
The fifty partnership was up for the opening wicket before Mukesh Chaudhary scalped two wickets on consecutive deliveries. While Sharma holed out to the deep, Rahul Tripathi sliced it straight to short third man.
Aiden Markram and Williamson added 30 runs for the next wicket. Markram crunched consecutive sixes against Santner but the bowler had the last laugh after Markram was caught at deep mid-wicket.
SRH were 89-3 at the half-way mark. Nicholas Pooran showed intent immediately and crunched a six as the 100 was up for SRH in the 12th over.
Williamson and Pooran clubbed a six each but Dwaine Pretorius claimed the all-important wicket of the SRH skipper after Williamson was trapped LBW.
The equation was down to 56 off 18 for SRH after Pooran smashed his third six of the innings. Mukesh Choudhary added two more wickets to the tally after dismissing Shashank Singh and Washington Sundar in the 18th over.
RCB are coming to Lucknow on the back of back a crushing defeat at home against KKR and beating LSG in their backyard isn’t going to be an easy task for RCB. Faf du Plessis-led side lost against KL Rahul & Co. in a high-scoring contest at home.
Offered a batting beauty in Mohali, LSG batters went on the rampage but they have struggled due to the slow nature of the surface here. Rahul’s team would, however, be expected to put up a much better show than what they managed in their previous home game as they failed to chase 136 from a commanding position.
