Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) handed a defeat to Mumbai India(MI) in the match 63 of IPL 2023.
Rohit Sharma won the toss and put LSG to bat first. Jason Behrendorff dismissed Deepak Hooda and Prerak Mankad on successive deliveries. The home side were in all sorts of trouble after star opener Quinton de Kock succumbed to Piyush Chawla on his very first delivery of the match.
LSG made a decent comeback in the contest on the back of skipper Krunal Pandya and Aussie all-rounder Marcus Stoinis’ solid stand for the fourth wicket.
However, Krunal, had to leave the field after sustaining a minor injury, just one short of a well-deserved half-century. But his departure did not impact the home side.
Stoinis returned unbeaten on 89 off 47 balls as Lucknow piled a stiff 177/3 in 20 overs. He stitched a crucial 82-run stand with Pandya for the fourth wicket after LSG were reduced to 35/3 in 6.1 overs.
Chasing 178, Mumbai got off to a great start led by captain Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan but they could only tally 172/5 in 20 overs. The pair added 90 runs for the first wicket before the duo were packed by Ravi Bishnoi. Rohit scored 37(25), while Ishan hammered 59 off 39. Yash Thakur then cleaned up Suryakumar Yadav for 7(9). Tim David’s effort went in vain. He returned unbeaten on 32 off 19, and kept Mumbai in the hunt but Mohsin Khan came to LSG’s rescue. The pacer defended 11 runs in the final over to power his side to a convincing win, which helped them climb to the third spot in the points table.
