The target goes beyond 200 for the second time in the newest season of IPL. Lucknow Super Giants successfully condemned Chennai Super Kings in the LSG vs CSK IPL 2022 match. Chennai faced yet another loss yesterday despite scoring a huge total.
LSG vs CSK IPL 2022: How did Lucknow pull that off?
Though their first half went painful, the second innings led them to the victory. Evin Lewis, the muscular batter was the one who led them during that phase. He remained unbeaten on a 23-ball 55. Lewis paired up with Deepak Hooda and launched his attack and added 32 off 16 balls.
Shivam Dube leaked 25 runs in the penultimate over with both Lewis and Ayush Badoni hitting him multiple sixes. The decision to hand over the most important overs to the inexperienced bowlers still seems interesting.

LSG vs CSK IPL 2022: How did CSK hold a grip in the beginning?
Largely thanks to the medium pacers – Dwayne Bravo and Dwayne Pretorius. Dwayne Bravo became the IPL’s highest-ever wicket-taker when he nicked off the wicket of Deepak Hooda. Dwayne Pretorius sent off both the openers. KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock put on a great show with an untroubled opening stand.
Pretorius struck his very first over getting Rahul to mistime a pull while keeping de Kock unproductive by taking the pace off, keeping it wide.

LSG vs CSK IPL 2022: Chennai’s experiment and payoff
Both Robin Uthappa and Moeen Ali got out in quick succession with Uthappa being trapped for an LBW by Ravi Bishnoi. Moeen Ali got bowled out on 35 trying to slog Avesh Khan. It was necessary for CSK to keep ticking boundaries as far as the run rate was concerned. To make it happen, CSK used the right weapon from their artillery, Shivam Dube. Dube wasted no time getting the scorecard ticking. He hit Chameera for three boundaries in an over. Two sixes and five fours were involved in the 30-ball strike of Shivam Dube. He made sure that the middle overs did not slow down.
Though Dube could not make it to the half-century, his innings were nothing short of spectacular. Shivam Dube fell one run short of the half-century. Evan Lewis at deep midwicket. He had completed his mission by then.
Brief Scores: Chennai Super Kings 210/7 (Robin Uthappa 50, Shivam Dube 49; Ravi Bishnoi 2-24) lost to Lucknow Super Giants 211/4 (Evin Lewis 55*, Quinton de Kock 61) by 6 wickets
