The 26th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 took place between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). It was a low-scoring thriller that went down the wire and saw the KL Rahul-led side winning the game by 10 runs.

It’s fair to say that they bagged the crunch situations, which was potentially the reason behind their win. One of the deciding moments of the game was during the last over of innings when LSG batter Deepak Hooda took a staggering catch under pressure that saw his side home.

It was during the 4th ball of the 20th over when Avesh Khan bowled a slot ball. Dhruv Jurel timed the ball to perfection and took on the longest part of the ground. But Deepak Hooda, who was stationed on at the long-on made good use of his height and pouched the ball just a few inches inside the ropes to send the batter packing.

“Any victory away from home is good, we always stress about winning away from home. I played some national cricket and came into this tournament. It was a difficult pitch for strokeplay. I was trying to hit more boundaries than sixes, not an easy pitch to come in and start hitting. 

“It was critical to assess and understand that I need some balls to get used to this pitch. I think it (pitch) was just playing low. In terms of bounce it was up and down. Variable bounce was the hardest to handle today.” 

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will be next seen in action when they will take on Gujarat Titans (GT) on Saturday (22nd April).
