It was an important game for both Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans as the qualification for playoffs was on the line.

It was a contest between the top two sides of the tournament. GT once again came on top of LSG as they did earlier in the season. They beat LSG by 62 runs in a low scoring game. KL Rahul was not happy after his team’s poor show with the bat.

We Did Well To Restrict Them To 150: KL Rahul

GT won the toss and batted first, but never got going in their innings, it was only Shubman Gill who found some timing. He batted through the innings and scored 63 runs. In the slog overs Rahul Tewatia contributed with 22 runs off 16 balls. For LSG it was Avesh Khan and Mohsin Khan who were the pick of the bowlers as they gave away just 44 runs in their 8 overs and picked up 3 wickets.

LSG was bowled out for just over 70 so there isn’t much to talk about, but KL after the game said, “We should have batted a lot better. Some poor shot selections, a run-out didn’t help, good learning for us, hopefully we can learn from a loss like this. Sometimes you need a little bit of a reminder to keep turning up every game and keep trying to do our best.”

“These low totals, you want to make use of the powerplay. For me and Quinton, it was about getting the team off to a good start, not necessarily getting off to a 60-run powerplay but to get to at least 35 or 45 without losing too many wickets would have been an ideal.

We knew the pitch was going to grip a bit and scoring runs after the powerplay might be a bit difficult. We took a couple of chances and that did come off. We knew their spinners were going to be really difficult to score off. We have to find ways to score against good oppositions on tricky pitches. That’s something we need to learn and figure out”, he further added.

On his team’s bowling performance he said, “we knew it was a tricky and challenging pitch, we bowled really well. Restricting a team under 150 on any pitch is commendable and the bowlers did their job.”

LSG still have two games left, even if they win one of them, they should be able to make it to the playoffs.
