Lucknow Super Giants beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 12 of the Indian Premier League by 12 runs. It was a come from behind win for the Giants as at one point in the first innings LSG were reduced to 27-3 at one point in the powerplay. But Deepak Hooda played a brilliant inning as he did in the first match to bring his team back in the game. He scored a quickfire 51 off 33 balls with 3 fours and 3 sixes. KL Rahul played a secondary role in the partnership as he made his way through his 28th fifty in IPL.
T Natarajan picked up KL Rahul and Krunal Pandya in one over which meant LSG couldn’t really score as much as they would have wanted in the slog overs. In the end, LSG posted 169 on the board.
In reply, SRH didn’t have the best of starts as they lost their captain for 16 in the power play itself. Abhishek Sharma too couldn’t get going as he was dismissed by Avesh Khan for 13. Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram then had a little partnership. But Markram in trying to accelerate got out to Krunal Pandya. Soon, Rahul Tripathi also departed for a well made 44 off 30 balls.
Nicholas Pooran tried his best as he scored 34 runs from 24 balls but he was picked up by Avesh Khan in the 18th over which tilted the game in the Giants’ favour. Three wickets in the last over by Jason Holder were the final nail in the coffin as SRH lost their 2nd game on the trot.
