LSG Vs PBKS, IPL 2024 Highlights

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) secured their maiden win of IPL 2024 with a strong performance. Quinton de Kock and captain Nicholas Pooran contributed to the team’s 199-run score, the joint-highest T20 score at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. LSG’s stand-in captain, Nicholas Pooran, opted to bat on a re-laid surface and made a bright start with a nine-ball 15 that included a six and a four off Arshdeep Singh.

The team’s post-PowerPlay period saw Harpreet Brar display exceptional lengths, while Rahul Chahar was singled out for attack. Krunal Pandya, another southpaw, contributed to LSG’s defense with a 22-ball 43*.

Debutant Mayank Yadav’s fiery middle-over bowling helped them defeat Punjab Kings (PBKS) by 21 runs.

Player of the Match went to Mayank Yadav.

A new captain, a new pitch, and a new powerplay strategy

Arshdeep Singh and Sam Curran contributed to a 54-run PowerPlay for Lucknow, with Nicholas Pooran explaining the regular captain’s role as an impact substitute. The stand-in captain batted on a re-laid surface, making a bright start with a six and a four off Singh. The powerplay approach was a fresh approach to managing workloads. However, Quinton de Kock overcame his poor performance to dismiss fellow countryman Kagiso Rabada for a four and a six. He then hit another six off Sam Curran to propel Lucknow to a 54-run PowerPlay with 28 off 20.

De Kock and Pooran managed to complete Krunal Pandya’s kick

Quinton de Kock was dismissed by Arshdeep, but Pooran continued to score, hitting Arshdeep for fours. Rabada’s breakthrough in the 16th over saw Pooran dismissed for a 21-ball 42. Krunal Pandya, another southpaw, led a blitz that included a pulled six off Rabada, resulting in 20 runs off Harshal Patel’s 18th over.

An exciting counter

Dhawan and Bairstow combined to add 61 runs in the second innings of the chase, triggering a domino effect. Dhawan faced most deliveries during fielding restrictions and used his silken timing to score 41 off 25. Bairstow faced only 11 deliveries but kept up with the asking rate, scoring 20. Bairstow took over after Dhawan reached a 30-ball half-century, hitting back-to-back sixes off Krunal Pandya and bringing Punjab to 98/0 at the halfway point of the chase.

Mayank Yadav Entry

Delhi’s 21-year-old fast bowler, Mayank Yadav, got his maiden wicket in the IPL 2024 after a pacy delivery at 150 kph. Prabhsimran Singh also scored 19 off 7 in his brief stay, including six off Mayank and Bishnoi. Jitesh Sharma, a debutant for Punjab, also miscued a pull and had a pacy and impactful spell (3 for 27).

With a double blow, Mohsin completes the deal

Early in the 17th over, Dhawan gloved a short ball down the legside to fall for a 50-ball 70, sealing PBKS’s collapse. Sam Curran made a blunder with the next ball, pulling it to mid-on, effectively ending the match. In the last over, Livingstone struck several boundaries, but his efforts did little to narrow the margin of defeat.

Brief scores

By a margin of 21 runs, Lucknow Super Giants (Quinton de Kock 54, Krunal Pandya 43*, Nicholas Pooran 42, and Sam Curran 3-28) defeated Punjab Kings (Shikhar Dhawan 70, Jonny Bairstow 42, and Mayank Yadav 3-27) in 20 overs.

What next for the teams?

After a three-day break, PBKS—who have dropped two of their first three games of the season—will play Gujarat Titans in Ahmedabad on April 4. With a shorter turnaround, LSG will play RCB in Bengaluru on April 2.
