IPL 2024: LSG defeat RCB by 28 runs


The Lucknow Super Giants defeated the opposition by 28 runs thanks to Quinton de Kock’s brilliant fifty and Mayank Yadav’s youthful excellence.

Lucknow Super Giants defeated Royal Challengers Bengaluru by 28 runs on Tuesday in their IPL match because to Quinton de Kock’s brilliant fifty and Mayank Yadav’s youthful brilliance. Quinton De Kock’s 81 (56b) and Nicholas Pooran’s undefeated 40 (21b) were the cornerstones around which Lucknow built their 181 for five. Mahipal Lomror gave a stunning 33 off 13 balls, giving the RCB a fleeting chance to reach the astonishing 182 mark. The hosts were dismissed for 153, but Mayank’s explosive three-wicket haul (3/14) could not be disputed.

However, RCB’s chase never really took off, owing to their own mistakes as well as the skill of Lucknow bowlers.

Lucknow opened the bowling with two spinners, Manimaran Siddharth and Krunal Pandya, surprising Faf du Plessis (19 off 13) and Virat Kohli (22 off 16).

However, the entrance of pacer Naveen-ul-Haq saw Kohli boost the ante, hitting him for six over the bowler’s head.

Siddharth, a left-arm spinner, quickly claimed the massive wicket of in-form Kohli, whose effort to go inside out resulted in a straightforward catch by Devdutt Padikkal at backward point.

After losing their captain, Du Plessis, to a thoughtless run-out, Glenn Maxwell, and Cameron Green, the RCB collapsed, reaching 58 for four in the eighth over.

During this phase of his three-over spell (3-0-13-2), Mayank picked up the pace.

Maxwell attempted to draw a 151 kmph laser beam from Mayank, but the Australian could not time his pull due to the fast pace, which led to a straightforward catch to Pooran at short mid-wicket.

With the delivery straightening a bit after pitching on the decent length to rattle his off-stump, Mayank’s raw pace overwhelmed Green.

After adding Rajat Patidar (27), the right-arm quick reduced RCB to 103 for six, and the home team was rapidly losing ground.

Earlier, De Kock showed off his remarkable hitting abilities with a fifty, but Lucknow was unable to score higher than par.

To play his shots with accuracy, the left-hander chose his bowlers and places on the field, but the RCB bowlers did not let any other batters, except from Pooran, a free run.

In just three overs, the Super Giants reached 32 for no loss, and in the Power Play, they reached 54.

The majority of the runs were scored by De Kock, who had a soft spot for Mohammed Siraj, the pacer.

Two consecutive sixes in two overs, two strong pulls, and a gorgeous loft over mid-wicket were all delivered with a thud by the South African.

Making six runs off his first ten balls, KL Rahul, who captained the team after entering the game as an impact substitute against Punjab Kings, got off to a poor start.

He gained momentum in his innings, though, when he hit a six off left-arm bowler Yash Dayal, and he subsequently blasted spinner Maxwell for another six.

Rahul, however, succumbed to his injuries quickly after attempting to drag Maxwell’s well-lengthened ball into Mayank Dagar’s hands inside the circle.

Devdutt Padikkal’s removal was followed by the second significant partnership in the LSG innings as De Kock and Marcus Stoinis (24, 15b) scored 56 runs off 30 balls for the third wicket.

As LSG progressed, Stoinis hit a six off Maxwell and Green, and De Kock, who brought his fifty in 36 balls, continued to carry his end of the bargain.

However, the blossoming relationship came to a stop when Dagar pouted at one of Stoinis’ hesitant swipes. Before long, De Kock was gone, lofting Reece Topley to Dagar.

At that point, the LSG needed a few more runs to reach safer shores as they were 143 for four in 16.3 overs.During his last attack, Pooran gave them those after bidding left-arm seamer Topley three consecutive sixes in the 19th over and two more maximums off Mohammed Siraj in the last over.
