IPL 2022 Rajasthan Royals vs Lucknow Super Giants : That’s that from the Wankhede

It looked like it might be a one-sided contest a number of times throughout the LSG innings but somehow, it did come down to the last three balls. That brings LSG’s winning run to an end at three matches, RR jump to the top of the table with three wins from four matches. SunRisers Hyderabad will be facing Gujarat Titans tomorrow at the DY Patil stadium so do tune it for that. 

Rajasthan Royals vs Lucknow Super Giants: ‘It was Neesham’s idea’

Boult says he is being careful not to give Neesham too much credit but it was his New Zealand team mate who suggested to bowl the spear that he directed at Rahul. “It was a late call in the morning. It was Neesham’s idea. Rahul is a great player, he has had my number a few times but nice for a plan like that to come off,” Boult tells the host broadcaster.

“I didn’t see it, otherwise would’ve put bat on it. Was a good ball, got to give it to Boult,” Rahul tells the broadcasters about the ball from Boult that got him out for a golden duck. He says that bringing Stoinis in at No.8 was always the plan. “We know how dangerous he is, so we wanted him after the 15th over. But we have options and we will try to be unpredictable and shuffle the batting order sometimes,” he said.

Rajasthan Royals vs Lucknow Super Giants Score: RR beat LSG by 3 runs

Stoinis hits a four and a six off the last two balls but that won’t count for much. The Australian ends with an unbeaten 38 off 17 balls. This match went this way and Stoinis has done a herculean job to take this match into the last three balls considering how relentless RR were throughout this innings. LSG might just consider taking the Australian all-rounder up the order after this game, No.8 is just too low for someone as talented as him.
