LSG vs KKR Highlights
An immaculate bowling performance from Lucknow Super Giants coupled with a very lacklustre batting by the Kolkata Knight Riders handed the former a 75 run win over the latter at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
Chasing a target of 177, the Knight Riders never got going and apart from a belligerent 45 off 19 balls by Andre Russell, no other batter was able to stay at the crease and contribute. As a result, they were all out for 101 in the 15th over to lose the match by a huge margin.
Avesh Khan and Jason Holder picked three wickets each for the Super Giants while Mohsin Khan, Dushmantha Chameera and Ravi Bishnoi, the other three bowlers used, had a wicket each to their name as well.
Earlier in the evening, after being asked to bat and losing skipper KL Rahul in the first over itself, Deepak Hooda and Quinton de Kock got Lucknow to a great start as they added 71 for the second wicket. However, things slowed down post their dismissal.
And if it wasn’t for 30 runs of the 19th over by Shivam Mavi, Lucknow could have been well below 160 in setting up the total. In the 19th over, Mavi was hit for five sixes, three by Stoinis and two by Jason Holder.
LSG vs KKR Player of the Match: Avesh Khan
Speed merchant Avesh Khan, who was making a comeback from i9njury in this game, was adjudged Player of the Match for his performance in which he got the wickets of Nitish Rana, Andre Russell and Anukul Roy with the last two wickets coming in one over only, giving no chance whatsoever for Kolkata to recover. He finished his quota of three overs with figures of 3-19
Kolkata Knight Riders captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and decided to bowl first at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune against the Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul.
As Avesh Khan was fit and ready to play, he came in the LSG Playing 11 in place of Krishnappa Gowtham. Kolkata were forced to rest Umesh Yadav because of a niggle that he picked up and Harshit Rana was played in his place
