Best match in the Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat head to head
The recent match at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow was the most exciting match between the two teams. But in the end, the Titans won by seven runs and snatched victory from the jaws of victory.
Here is a look at how the match unfolded:
After opting to bat first, the Titans could only post a score of 135 for the loss of six wickets in 20 overs. Shubman Gill departed early, but Wriddhiman Saha and Hardik put on 68 runs for the second wicket. Saha scored 47 runs off 37 balls with six fours before Krunal accounted for his wicket.
Hardik batted until the last over and racked up 66 runs off 50 balls with the help of two fours and four sixes. Krunal and Marcus Stoinis picked up two wickets apiece for the Super Giants. Amit Mishra got the wicket of Abhinav Manohar, who is capable of doing big damage with the bat in hand.
The Super Giants got off to a brisk start in their run-chase and looked favourites to chase down the target in a canter. KL Rahul and Kyle Mayers put on 55 runs for the opening wicket off 6.3 overs. With the required run rate down to a run-a-ball, GT were well and truly on the backfoot.
But Hardik’s men showed nerves of steel to make a stupendous comeback. From the 44th to 49th over, LSG scored only 19 runs and lost two wickets. With 12 runs to win off the last over, LSG faltered big time and scored only five runs.
Rahul stayed until the very last over and scored 68 runs off 61 balls with eight fours. But his efforts went in vain as Mohit Sharma dismissed him in the last over. 136 was also among the lowest scores ever defended in the history of the IPL. Four wickets fell in the over with Mohit Sharma also having a chance to get a hat-trick.
