BADSHAHBOOK: On April 22, 2023, Gujarat Titans took on Lucknow Super Giants in a thrilling IPL 2023 encounter at the Ekana Sports City Stadium in Lucknow. The defending champions, who were recently beaten by Rajasthan Royals, were hoping to bounce back to winning ways, while LSG were aiming to go top of the points table with a victory.
After winning the toss, Gujarat Titans skipper Hardik Pandya elected to bat first against LSG captain KL Rahul. Pandya smashed 66 runs in 50 balls, while Wriddhiman Saha scored 47 off 37 balls to help GT post a total of 135/6. Krunal Pandya was superb with his bowling, getting the wickets of Saha and Shubman Gill, while Marcus Stoinis dismissed Hardik Pandya and David Miller to restrict GT to a relatively low score.
In response, LSG got off to a shaky start, losing opener Yashasvi Jaiswal early on. However, KL Rahul and Kyle Mayers put together a solid partnership to take their team closer to the target. Rahul smashed 68 runs from 61 balls, while Mayers contributed 51 runs from 42 deliveries.
With LSG needing 22 runs from the final two overs, Mohit Sharma stepped up for Gujarat Titans. In his final over, Sharma took the crucial wicket of KL Rahul and got two run-outs to seal a thrilling unlikely win for his team. LSG suffered a late collapse and could only manage 128/7 in response to GT's score of 135/6.
Mohit Sharma was the hero of the match, taking two crucial wickets including that of KL Rahul and getting two run-outs in his final over. Rahul's impressive knock of 68 runs from 61 balls almost helped LSG secure a win, but they suffered a late collapse and could only manage 128/7 in response to Gujarat Titans' score of 135/6. Krunal Pandya shone with his bowling, taking two important wickets.
In their previous match against the Royals, GT had scored 177/7, thanks to David Miller's 46-run effort and Shubman Gill's 45 runs. Sandeep Sharma had picked up two wickets for the Royals, but Sanju Samson's team had managed to chase down the target thanks to his 60 off 32 balls and Shimron Hetmyer's unbeaten knock of 56 from 26 balls.
Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, were coming off a 10-run victory over the Royals, with Marcus Stoinis leading the charge with his all-round performance. Stoinis scored 21 runs from 16 balls and had picked up two wickets earlier.
It was a low-scoring thriller between the two teams as KL Rahul and Co managed to score 154/7, with Avesh Khan being the star with the ball for LSG, taking three wickets. However, Yashasvi Jaiswal's 44-run knock combined with Jos Buttler's 40-run effort went in vain.
