IPL 2022 on 10th April 2022
Rajasthan Royals (RR) with a score of 165 for the loss of 6 wickets defeated Lucknow Super giants (LSG) who had a score of 162 runs for the loss of 8 wickets.
The RR team found out how to defend in a successful manner even though they lost the toss the fourth time in 4 matches. R Ashwin was promoted to No. 6 in the 10th over, and got out in the nineteenth over. The LSG team promoted Jason Holder and K Gowtham to ensure that their main batters are not in any way exposed to the bowling of Trent Boult.
A Quick Start with Royals
As the RR team is used to the idea of batting first, the openers came out all set to fire. Yashawi Jaiswal was replaced by Devdutt Padikkal, who managed 2 boundaries in the 4th over. The score was 39 for 0.
Ashwin breaks the Shackles
Ashwin has, previously, batted in the top 6, but those games were low-scoring for stabilizing chases that were tricky. This time he was out to set a target. At the start of the 16th over, he was 9 runs off 14 balls.
Hetmeyer and chaos
Hetmeyer found the required freedom and hit 2 sixes and a four in the 18th over against Holder. Hetmeyer was taken aback when he saw Ashwin walking off in the 19th over, just after 2 balls. The next two balls, he managed to hit 2 sixes. In the last over, Holder went for Yorkers, but that did not stop Parag and Hetmeyer hitting a 6 each, giving the RR teams the required punch.
Boult has bowled the 1st ball of the innings multiple times and only 2 times he went around the wicket. Both these times were to Rahul. This time he bowled full and also got this to seam. This went past the inside edge and also bowled him.
Spinners taking charge
The bowlers of the RR team had compelled the LSG team to play cricket in the ‘old-fashioned’ manner. Deepak Hooda and Quinton de Kock had to ‘rebuild’ the innings. Hooda tried hitting out after the timeout, but Sen managed to hit his wicket. After Ayush Badoni was out at the 12th over’s end, the LSG team promoted Krunal Pandya.
Chahal with Big blows
The LSG team held back till the fifteenth over. They now needed 69 runs. There was no need of waiting for Stonis as Chahal had 2 overs. Chahal managed to dismiss Pandya and de Kock in the 16th over.
Chahal also managed to get rid of Dushmantha Chameera in the 18th over. With Avesh hitting a 6 off the last ball, the LSG team were yet in the hunt.
The RR team went first to the senior bowler so as to leave the youngster some ‘cushion’. Krishna stuck with Yorkers. Besides the 4, Stonis managed 2 more sixes that’ came-off’ the missed Yorkers.
