The 20th match of the IPL 2022 witnessed a contest between the Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. RR came into the game facing a defeat against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their previous encounter. They made a brilliant comeback by breaking LGS’s winning momentum while defeating them in a rollercoaster.

KL Rahul, winning the toss elected to chase in the game. The highest run-scorer of the tournament so far, Jos Buttler started off really well, but could not work his charm this time as he was dismissed in the powerplay. Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson tried building a partnership but failed as Avesh Khan, Krishnappa Gowtham, and Jason Holder cleaned up RR’s top order.

RR’s middle-order batter Shimron Hetmyer and all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin were the saviors of the game. The two hit some humungous boundaries to take the score to a defendable total. The two went on to score a 50+ runs partnership for the fifth wicket before Ashwin retired out, to let Riyan Parag bat during the death overs. Hetmyer notched up his half-century in 33 balls as he finished off his innings scoring 59*(36) and RR put up a total of 165/6.

Trent Boult traps two batters in the first over

During the chase, RR’s Trent Boult struck on the very first ball, giving LSG a nasty blow in the form of KL Rahul, as the LSG skipper was bowled out for a golden duck. Bowling the ball wide on the next delivery, the New Zealander added another wicket to his scalp as he cleaned up Gowtham on his next ball. LSG faced a massive setback when they lost two batters in the very first over.

Not much time did it take for Prasidh Krishna to send Jason Holder walking back to the pavilion. In the powerplay, LSG stood at 31/3, and shortly, Kuldeep Sen sent the in-form Deepak Hooda packing. Marcus Stoinis, who was roped into the game by LSG, tried to anchor the innings down the order but fell into Sen’s trap as he restricted the all-rounder from scoring big in the last over. A combined effort from the team helped RR defeat LSG by three runs as they registered their third victory of the season.
