It’s been some time since the Chinnaswamy arena created a doozy that would blow the mind of any average person, however time and a groundbreaking pandemic haven’t changed the Chinnaswamy’s tryst with cliffhangers. The Imperial Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Goliaths played out a flat out spine chiller that saw the guests dominate the competition off the last ball. In a high-scoring game that went either way, LSG arose successful by one wicket off the last ball.
You’ve got another think coming. Nicholas Pooran turned that glimmer of hope into a beaming ray of sunshine, with a flurry of sixes, as LSG scored 80 runs between overs 11 and 15. And just when one thought it would be a walk in the park, drama ensued. Pooran was dismissed by a just-below-waist-high ball by Siraj, bringing in Unadkat and the rest of the tail, once again turning the match on its head.
This is one of the highest Run-Chase ever in history of IPL Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) did it.
