Lucknow Super Giants were looking down and out in their contest by the mid-innings break, with the KL Rahul-led franchise having somehow struggled their way to a total of 153/8 in 20 overs, however, they did just enough to restrict Punjab Kings under 133 runs, to win the match by 20 runs.
Despite late hitting from Rishi Dhawan, which gave PBKS a glimmer of hope, the all-rounder lacked support and thus he couldn’t lead his side over the line.
With their latest win, Lucknow have risen to third place in the league standings, as they further boosted their hopes to qualify for the playoffs of IPL 2022 season.
That’s that from Match 42.@LucknowIPL win by 20 runs and add two more points to their tally.
