LSG vs MI: The KL Rahul century
The Lucknow skipper seemed to have struggled to start well, but thanks to Rahul’s fine determination, the side got to a respectable total in the end. The initial 30 runs came off 30 deliveries, as Mumbai Indians could be seen breaking their usual pattern of poor bowling powerplay.
The change-over from Rahul came in the second half, He completely dominated in the final five overs as he went from 67 off 46 after 15 overs to a magnificent 103 off 62 at the end of the innings.
LSG vs MI: What occurred after the end of the 9th over?
LSG was threatened by quick wickets, but a determined Rahul pulled them forward.

LSG vs MI: The weird innings of Ishan Kishan
MI’s most expensive mega-auction signing has been struggling with his batting form, with the worst of his recent outings coming on Sunday. Even though Rohit Sharma got off to a fast start, Kishan was overly cautious and couldn’t break the shackles during the PowerPlay. MI was reduced to 43 for 0 in six overs, but Kishan had six off 17 deliveries.
Ravi Bishnoi ended his agony by dismissing him in the eighth over, albeit in an unusual fashion, as an inside edge from a strong swipe bounced up off Quinton de Kock’s boot behind the stumps and into Jason Holder’s hands at first slip. With that, his innings came to an end with 8 out of 20 balls.

LSG vs MI: The attempted rescue mission of Tilak Varma
Tilak Varma spearheaded the big release in the 14th over, as he smashed two sixes in a row and fetched 16 runs off Ravi Bishnoi. However, the Lucknow team was quick enough to retaliate back as they bowled exceptionally well at the death against a side that has been batting exceptionally well over the past few years.
MI was stranded on the field when they had 59 on their target off 24 balls with the two batters in the middle but Mohsin Khan, Dushmantha Chameera, and Jason Holder conceded 9, 5, and 6 and ended Tilak Varma’s brave journey to put the chase.
