Lucknow, chasing 166, could manage only 162/8 in the end.

LSG needed 13 runs off the last six deliveries but debutant Kuldeep Sen, a young right-arm pacer from Madhya Pradesh, bowled superbly to deny Stoinis the chance to become the hero.

Earlier, a brilliant late onslaught by Shimron Hetmyer (59 not out off 36 balls) and a tactical switch by R Ashwin, who became the first player in IPL history to get retired out, helped Rajasthan Royals reach a modest 165/6 in 20 overs.

Hetmyer and Ashwin came together with Rajasthan struggling at 67/4 and raised 68 runs in the partnership for the fifth wicket to take their team to safety.

With just 10 deliveries to go, Ashwin got `retired out` after giving the strike to Hetmyer. The West Indies batsman struck three sixes, two of them off successive balls of AVesh Khan, as Royals raised 78 runs in the last five overs.

They went on to defend that small total thanks to their bowling depth.
