“No Set Plan” For LSG In Batting Order Says KL Rahul

Chennai Super Kings holds a rare loss at their home ground, Chepauk as LSG comes out victorious. With this, Lucknow Super Gaints has won a match against CSK for the second time in a row.

While Marcus Stoinis became the Player Of The Match, and undoubtedly was the hero of the night with that stunning innings, CSK’s new captain Ruturaj Gaikwad played a breathtaking innings and got a century of his own earlier.

With this win, LSG moves up on the points table. The win takes LSG up to 4th place while CSK slips down one place to 5th.

“It was not just power hitting, it was very clever batting” says Rahul

Addressing the media and his fans at the after-match ceremony, LSG Captain KL Rahul expressed his joy over winning an important match as this. 

“Very special, especially when it’s a game like that. We were way behind the game when we were batting so it was very special to pull it off. It was a fresh start, both teams started off at 0. Different conditions here. I think they started off really well and put us under pressure. 170-180 would’ve been a great total here but they batted really well. Full credit to Stoinis. He said.

“It was not just power hitting, it was very clever batting. He picked his bowlers and played very well. (On sending Stoinis at 3) We felt like we needed to be braver and capitalize the powerplay and needed 1 power-hitter in the top-3. I’ve realised that T20 cricket has changed in the past couple of years, 170-180 doesn’t always cut it. You need to go harder in the powerplay and the impact player rule also gives you a bit more depth. (On the change to his own batting) Haven’t played much T20 cricket so happy that it’s coming off.”  He added.

There’s no set plan, apart from the openers

Adding to his statement, Rahul explained that the team has no set plans apart from knowing who their opening batsmen are going to be.

“There’s no set plan, apart from the openers, everyone else is ready to go out whenever we feel it’s right. We’re going to keep it flexible. (On his catch earlier) Not bad, not bad… I hope I get the catch of the tournament award (smiles), I was just being modest.” the 32 year old wicketkeeper-batsman added.
