What a rise! The Lucknow Super Giants beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 12 runs in an IPL match played at DY Patil Stadium on Monday evening.
Their second consecutive victory has established LSG as heroes. People had given up on this new team after their loss to the Gujarat Titans, but Captain KL Rahul has proven everyone wrong.
After KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda hit half-centuries to help the newcomers to 169/7, Khan led the bowling attack with a four-wicket haul to give the Super Giants their second win in a row. The uncapped player’s brilliant 18th overturned the tide in Lucknow’s favor, as the Sunrisers suffered their second consecutive loss of the season.
LSG 169/7 in 20 overs (KL Rahul 68 off 50 balls, Deepak Hooda 51 off 33 balls, Washington Sundar 2/28, Romario Shepherd 2/42)
SRH 157/9 (Rahul Tripathi 44 off 30 balls, Avesh Khan 4/24, Jason Holder 3/34).
