The working day plainly belonged to Rajat Patidar (112* off 54 balls) as he was in chic kind with the ball racing off his bat generating the sweet audio of the fantastic call.

For Lucknow Super Giants, KL Rahul (79 off 58 balls) set a excellent struggle with support from Deepak Hooda (45 off 26 balls) but none of the other LSG batters could match upto the scoring rate.
In the finish Josh Hazelwood’s (3 wks for 45 operates) bowling turned out to the heart-breaker for Lucknow.
