KL Rahul, the captain of the Lucknow Super Giants, has been fined for his team’s slow over-rate during their Wednesday Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 encounter against the Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
Rahul was fined Rs 12 lakhs because it was the team’s first infraction of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct regarding minimum over-rate infractions.
Sanju Samson invited LSG to bat first in Jaipur, and LSG graciously accepted, scoring a valiant score of 154 for 7 in the allocated 20 overs
In the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023)’s Match 26 on Wednesday night, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) triumphed over Rajasthan Royals (RR) after an astonishing comeback. LSG replied to Sanju Samson’s invitation to bat first in Jaipur with a heroic total of 154 for 7 in the allotted 20 overs.
Rahul amassed 39 runs off of 32 balls before being bowled out in the eleventh over of the innings. In the end, Mayers bravely scored 51 points off of 42 balls. Ayush Badoni, the third batsman, scored just one while Deepak Hooda responded with just two, shattering the middle of the order. Marcus Stoinis (21) and Nicholas Pooran (29) attempted to revive the innings despite their meagre contributions, but they could only raise their team’s total to 154/7.
RR successfully countered after their opening partnership of Jos Buttler (44) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (44) scored 87 runs for the first wicket. Marcus Stoinis took two wickets and dismissed the RR openers to get LSG back on track. Due to RR’s middle-order batters’ poor performance, which saw none of them have an impact, LSG was able to pull off an exciting triumph in the decisive over.
Rajasthan Royals, despite dropping the game, continued to lead the IPL 2023 Points Table
Despite losing the match, Rajasthan Royals remained at the top of the IPL 2023 Points Table. While the table leaders now hold the top spot, the KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants are in second place with eight points from six games. Next up for Lucknow is a match against Gujarat Titans, the reigning champions, at their home stadium, the Ekana Stadium.
