– IPL 2022, Lucknow Super Giants vs Mumbai Indians Highlights: KL Rahul did not get too much assistance from his batters as he scored his second consecutive century against MI but LSG's bowlers backed up their captain with a near perfect performance.
KL Rahul scored his second century of the season against Mumbai Indians but he hardly had any support at the other end as LSG managed a score of 168/6 in 20 overs. On the other hand, his bowlers and fielders backed him up perfectly as they stifled MI in the run chase and condemned the five-time champions to their eighth consecutive defeat. Out of the seven bowlers that LSG deployed, six took wickets while the only one who didn't, Dushmantha Chameera, conceded just 14 runs in his four overs.
The captain praised his all-rounders for brilliant performance against MI as they registered their fifth win of the season. “With the depth, you can play a bit more freely. That’s probably the only reason (for his higher strike rate). Teams that can defend well, or bowl well in the powerplay and finish off well in the death overs are teams that have won the tournament. We were very clear going into the auctions – I’m big on having allrounders in the team. Having them in the team, makes my life easier with the options,” said Rahul.
