Mohammad Shami was the pick of the bowlers with his three-fer during the first innings of the 39th match of the Indian Premier League between Kolkata Knight Riders and Gujarat Titans.
A notable moment in the first innings was Mohit Sharma’s amazing catch. He had to run back from mid-on, look over his right shoulder and then stretch full length forward but Mohit judged the steepler to perfection.
Yesterday, Punjab Kings couldn’t overhaul the daunting target 258 in Mohali, falling short by 56 runs in the end. of The edifice of the gargantuan total posted by Lucknow Super Giants was built on four superb knocks – Marcus Stonis 72(40), Kyle Mayers 54 (24), Ayush Badoni 43 (24) and Nicholas Pooran 45 (19). That amounts to strike rates of 225, 179.17, 180 and 236.84 respectively.
Nicholas Pooran walked out to epitomise Lucknow Super Giants’ belligerent approach on the night as he hit three fours off his first three balls faced. Earlier, opener Kyle Mayers took on Arshdeep Singh with disdain, carting the left-arm pacer for four boundaries in the second over of the innings. The string of boundaries was as spectacular as this gem of a fielding effort from young Ravi Bishnoi.
Mohit Sharma you beauty 🔥🔥
