IPL 2022: Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis star as LSG chase down massive total to beat CSKAbdul Gh Lone 31 March 2022 0 COMMENTS
The Lucknow Super Giants put together a magnificent chase to get their first win in the Indian Premier League.
Fifties from Quinton de Kock (61 off 45) and Evin Lewis (55* off 23) helped LSG chase down CSK massive total of 210/7 in some style. The chase went down to the wire but the win will do LSG’s confidence a whole world of good.
The CCI wicket has been good for batting but it seemed to bring the very best out of CSK opener Robin Uthappa. The 36-year-old veteran played shots all around the park to score a 27-ball 50 and give the CSK innings a blistering start.
But blistering starts can mean precious little in the T20 format unless there is someone around to finish what was started. Shivam Dube played a fine knock of 49 off 30 balls while others like Moeen Ali (35), Rayudu (27) and Dhoni (16 runs off 6 balls) chipped in with handy contributions.
On the bowling front, Ravi Bishnoi was in superb form in tough conditions. There was plenty of dew around but the leg-spinner returned splendid bowling figures of 24/2 in his four overs while everyone else took plenty of stick.
Two successful 200+ run chases in just 7 games…
