Rajasthan Royals inch a step closer to the IPL 2022 playoffs with a 24-run win against the Lucknow Super Giants. After Yashasvi’s 41, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna and Obed McCoy pocketed a wicket each to restrict the Lucknow Super Giants to 154/8.
Riyan Parag had a jubilant celebration after diving full length and catching ball smashed by Marcus Stoinis off Obed McCoy’s delivery. But the umpires thought off having a look at it and found it to be landing just short. LSG: 139/7 after 18.3 overs.
Obed McCoy runs through the lower-middle order in just one over. Gets Holder caught behind and then cleans up Chameera for a duck. Lucknow seven down and Rajasthan eye a crucial win. LSG: 120/7 after 17 overs.
Sanju Samson performed the stumping in all possible manners to get rid of Deepak Hooda. He grabbed the ball, dislodged the bails but to be sure, uprooted one of the stumps. Hooda’s brilliant innings comes to an end. LSG: 116/5 after 16 overs.
Fifty for Deepak Hooda. The all-rounder once again rises to the occasion and brings up his half-century. What a knock played by him, his 4th fifty in IPL 2022. LSG: 107/4 after 15 overs.
Ashwin strikes and a tag team effort from Jos Buttler and Riyan Parag at the boundary line ends the good-looking innings of Krunal Pandya.

Chahal to Hooda – SIX, FOUR. Runs are coming in for Lucknow for steadily and slowly. Hooda is the man to watch out for. Chahal, the most dangerous man now, is getting hammered by Hooda. That’s a worrying sign for RR. LSG: 79/3 after 11 overs.
McCoy bowls short and quick, Hooda moves inside the line and and whacks it for a flat six. LSG: 61/3 after 9 overs.
Hooda and Krunal are playing together – such a big thing in today’s world. Jokes apart, LSG need the duo to stay there and add some more runs to the board as there is a long way to go. LSG: 50/3 after 8 overs
Chahal to Krunal – SIX! cracking shot and a much-needed one. Used the spin to get the loft in his shot and deposits over long-on. LSG: 44/3 after 7 overs
And that’s the end of the rivalry, Krishan has finally got his man. Rahul falls right after hammering a stylish six. The bowler knew that Rahul has consumed deliveries and was looking to break lose. He lets him make the room with a back of a length delivery. KL plays the back foot drive over point, but gets caught by Yashasvi Jaiswal.
A much-needed shot, especially after the face-off in the previous over bowled by right-arm quick. Full delivery, outside off stump, and Rahul unleashes the lofted cover drive. LSG: 29/2 after 5.1 overs.
What an over from Krishna, just a run from it. Seems like Boult’s double strike has jolted the Lucknow batting deeply. LSG: 22/2 after 4 overs
Trent Boult provides the early breakthrough to Rajasthan. Gets the prized wicket of Quinton de Kock and then traps Ayush Badoni in front for a golden duck. Lucknow Super Giants under pressure after quick blows. LSG: 15/2 after 2.2 overs.

WICKET! Ravichandran Ashwin drove one towards mid-off and called for a single. KL Rahul fielded and released the ball quickly. However, James Neesham had responded and realised he wouldn’t make it back with Ravi Bishnoi taking off the bails. There was an attempt from Ashwin to sacrifice himself but replay showed the pair hadn’t crossed. Disappointment from Neesham who walks back on 14. RR 152/6 n 17.4 overs.
Earlier, RR captain Sanju Samson opted to bat first saying that’s been their strength – setting targets – and hence doesn’t see any reason to change it.
