Lucknow Super Giants Defeats Mumbai Indians By 36 Runs. What a game of Cricket this was between Lucknow Super Giants and Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League. As you may know that Mumbai Indians have not been able to win a single match this year of the competition. But all the fans and supporters of Mumbai Indians were very hopeful the fact that the drought will end in this match. So in today’s match, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to field first once again. And he said that his team is pretty confident of Chasing down any total and will back themselves to do so tonight also.
So coming out to bat first Lucknow Super Giants did not have a great start for their inning and they lost QDK in the first over of Bumrah. However, after Quinton’s dismissal, the new batsman came to the crease and scored fast runs. However, none of them were able to carry on for long as all of their runs accumulated to 57 of 58 balls. Also, the masterclass of K L Rahul was on show tonight when he scored an amazing century with 103 runs. But the way it looked at the start and a certain total of 200 was on the cards. But Mumbai Indians did some damage control at the end overs to restrict them below 200. So, Lucknow Super Giants were only able to get to 168 and give MI the target of 169 runs.
So Mumbai Indians coming out to chase also did not have a very great start and never looked confident. And especially if we talk about Ishan Kishan who scored 8 runs out of the 20 deliveries he faced. Although, Rohit Sharma was looking in touch and was looking set for big runs and win it for the team. But as soon as he departed he also took the hopes of the team winning the match with himself. And none of the Mumbai Indians batsmen were able to score freely as they were outplayed in every department. And with this loss MI have lost eight games on a Trott and that means they are the first team in history to do it.
So the bad luck for Mumbai Indians continues and they have lost eight out of eight matches that they have played. Whereas Lucknow Super Giants have won five matches out of the eight that they have played. Now the point table in the Indian Premier League is suddenly spicing up and the teams like Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings are still at the bottom of the table. And Mumbai Indians are all but out of this tournament and this must be devastating for all his fans. But before this only Delhi Daredevils and RCB lost six matches on a Trott in the years 2013 and 2019. And according to Cricbuzz, both of them came last on the points table that year.
