It was a much-needed win for LSG, as they moved into third place with 15 points. However, apart from the game, one strange thing was captured during the game. It happened in the second inning, when LSG pacer Naveen-ul-Haq was fielding at the boundary line. Fans teased him with chants of Virat Kohli, and he was visibly upset with that. He reacted to the chants and asked to go louder.

Notably, Naveen and Virat had heated altercations during the game between LSG and RCB at Ekana Stadium. The LSG mentor, Gautam Gambhir, was also involved in that, and there were some ugly scenes on the ground. It didn’t end there, and both players stretched it with some cryptic posts on social media. Speaking of the game, Naveen made his comeback after missing a couple of games. He gave up 37 runs in his four overs.

Batting first, Lucknow made a total of 177/3 in their first inning. It was largely due to a spectacular inning from Marcus Stoinis. The Australian all-rounder smashed an unbeaten 89 off 47. Skipper Krunal Pandya also batted well for his 49 not out. The Rohit Sharma-led team managed 172 runs in their chase and lost the game by five runs. Ishan Kishan was the top scorer, with 59 off 39.
