LSG vs PBKS – Bowlers help LSG demolish PBKS while defending

Published on

KL Rahul’s Lucknow Super Giants went to 3rd position in IPL points table with a thumping victory over Punjab Kings. Chasing a target of 154 runs, PBKS were restricted to 133/8 in 20 overs as they lost the match by 20 runs.

None of the Punjab Kings batters were allowed to score freely against Lucknow’s awesome bowling attack. Mohsin Khan took  3 for 24 while Chameera & Krunal Pandya took 2 wickets each. Krunal & Mohsin each bowled a maiden over also as Pandya gave only 11 runs in his spell. Chameera also bowled beautifully and gave only 17 runs in his spell.

Jonny Bairstow top scored for PBKS with 32 runs off 28 deliveries while skipper Mayank Agarwal scored 25, Rishi Dhawan – 21 and Livingstone scored 18 runs.

After 12 overs, PBKS team were looking solid with 88/3 and Livingstone & Bairstow at crease. However, Livingstone played a irresponsible shot and gave away his wicket after scoring 18 runs. That provided an opening to LSG bowlers who came all over PBKS frugal middle order batting lineup.

Earlier, PBKS bowlers restricted LSG to 153/8 in 20 overs. After KL Rahul’s early dismissal Deepak Hooda & Quinton de Kock played some sensible batting. Sandeep Sharma dismissed de Kock when he was on 46 which started the LSG collapse.

Deepak Hooda was run-out for 34 off 28 deliveries with LSG still good at 104/3 in 13.3 overs. However, Kagiso Rabada & Rahul Chahar kept the brakes on PSG batters.

Dushmantha Chameera played some good shots as he scored 17 off 10 balls. Mohsin Khan also striked the ball well with 13 runs off 6 balls. Kagiso Rabada took 4 wickets for 38 runs while Chahar took 2 for 30 runs.
