Lucknow Super Giants were successful to hammer the final nail to Mumbai Indians coffin yesterday. The five times champion seemed helpless in front of formar Punjab captain. Playing against Lucknow, it was only Rohit Sharma’s 39 and Tilak Verma’s 38, which had lit up some hope in the show! But, all in vain! Lokesh Rahul hits his second century of the season giving a tough competition to Josh Buttler. Rohit Sharma said during the post-match presentation: ‘
Compared to the previous matches, we bowled well today. I would not say that it was an impossible target to achieve, but it is a bad time, which is haunting us.
He also added, ‘Most of the players of the present squad are new and also inexperienced. But we need to figure a way out.’ Mumbai has been technically out of the present season of the world’s most celebrated cricket tournament. Experts believe that it was the mega auction where the team failed. So it is now worthless to repent upon. Batting first, Lucknow Super Giants have scored 168 for six wickets, and chasing the score Mumbai could only reach 132. K. L. Rahul was awarded the Man of The Match for his classic century!
