In the IPL 2023, Lucknow Super Giants defeated the five-time champion Mumbai Indians at the Ekana Cricket Stadium by a narrow margin on Tuesday, in what was yet another exhilarating game. The LSG bowlers ensured a victory after a 90-run partnership between Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma gave Mumbai Indians a significant chance of winning. Mohsin Khan, who hasn’t played in almost a year, held his own in the final over to deny Tim David and Cameron Green, keeping LSG in the playoffs. Gambhir’s bizarre reaction after Naveen’s expensive 19th over vs MI goes viral
Although the LSG made a comeback in the second innings, Mumbai Indians appeared to have set themselves up for another win. In the penultimate over of MI’s chase, after Naveen-ul-Haq returned to the playing eleven following a long break, LSG skipper reserved him for the over, with 30 runs to get for a Mumbai victory. However, Naveen had an off day under pressure.
In the second ball of the over, David sent the slower one over long on, smashing it for a six. Naveen then bowled a high full toss to David, which resulted in a boundary. Naveen did recover by conceding only a dot ball on the free hit and delivered a wide yorker. On the last ball of the over, David hit a second six over long on. Gambhir was captured by the camera with his eyes closed in disbelief in the dugout for a brief moment. When he opened his eyes, he remained quiet and emotionless.
LSG gained momentum in the final over, and Mohsin Khan held his composure during the final over, only giving away five runs. LSG moved to the third spot in the points table with this win in their final league game at home.
