Lucknow skipper KL Rahul remains calm in ‘animated’ chat with LSG owner after 10-wicket thrashing

Hyderabad (Telangana) (India), May 9: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) destroyed the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), dominating them with the new ball at first and then chasing 166 in 9.4 overs to defeat LSG by 10 wickets , the fastest 10-over score in T20.

After the match, a video from the ‘animated’ chat was doing the rounds on the internet, showing franchisee Sanjiv Goenka talking to Lucknow skipper KL Rahul near the LSG dugout.

The brilliant batting of Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, who reached fifty in 16 and 19 balls respectively, shared the highest powerplay scores in the history of T20 cricket by scoring a century stand in the powerplay for the second time this IPL.

After setting a reasonable and combative target of 167 on the board, the Sunrisers, building on the opening duo’s performances, galloped home in just 9.4 overs. The Willow Bearers’ fireworks reaffirmed the team’s formidable batting line-up, which is perhaps one of the most feared this ongoing IPL season.

After the match, Rahul said he was at a loss for words after Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma’s blitzkrieg hitting.

Speaking after the match, Rahul said that they have only seen this kind of batting on television. He also praised the batting of Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma’a, saying it was “unreal”.

“I’m at a loss for words. We’ve seen that kind of batting on TV. But this is unreal batting. Everything seemed to find the middle of the bat. Kudos to their skills. They’ve worked hard on their six-hitting skills “Rahul said.

The loss was LSG’s sixth in the IPL 2024, and due to the wide margin of defeat, it also severely damaged their net run-rate. They are currently ranked sixth after falling below Delhi Capitals in the latest rankings.
