Faf du Plessis, the skipper of Bangalore wins MAN OF THE MATCH award for his incredible hitting. He says the nature of the ground is such they had to run several couple runs but, in the end, he is glad to play a crucial knock for his side. He is gutted to miss out on the century. Says he had a mental image of coming into this game and change the way he played after a few decent outings in the past game. Further says, he is glad he could rack up enough runs which as well satisfied him a lot. Mentions, the bowlers were on the money. They executed their plans perfectly and it worked in their favour in the end. Mentions, it is going to be a scramble in the top 4. It is out of their control and hopes to improve every game. Adds, you still need one guy who has to anchor the innings, they haven’t been able to do that consistently. Some positives out of it though are Karthik and Ahmed, both are in amazing form.
Stay tuned for the presentation…
Josh Hazlewood is in for a spot interview. He says it was fun. On Faf du Plessis, he says he had some lean phases but today, he took time while wickets were falling but he stayed till the end and did really well. Tells that he is enjoying the conditions and on that wide call against Stoinis, he feels he got lucky there. Mentions they have well-rounded bowling attack and tick all the boxes.
KL Rahul, the captain of Lucknow is in for a chat. He says they started well but they should have done well as they thought, they had conceded 10-20 runs extra on the board. Tells the wicket was sticky but they needed one big partnership in the middle just like Faf du Plessis did for Bangalore. Adds that they should have done better as they put them under the pressure in the Powerplay but they will learn as a team and try and restrict the team to as low as possible.
It was a complete team performance by Bangalore. The bowlers kept picking up wickets at regular intervals. That certainly helped them to get the better of Lucknow in the end. Josh Hazlewood was the star with the ball, and he ended his spell with four wickets. Bangalore have now moved up to the second spot in the points table.
Lucknow were off to a poor start as they lost two wickets inside the Powerplay. Krunal Pandya changed the scenario of the game with the way he was playing the shots but once he fell, the required rate went up the roof, which took the game away from them. Marcus Stoinis and Ayush Badoni tried their best to take it deep but perished under the scoreboard pressure. Jason Holder sent some balls flying over the fence, but it was too little too late.
What a stunning performance by Bangalore. They had the upper hand for the most part of the game and eventually got over the line convincingly. Lucknow failed to build stands in the middle and hardly put any pressure on the bowlers.

Strategic break! Bangalore have sent 5 Lucknow players back to the hut. It won’t be long before they see tail-enders come at the crease. They would aim to take a couple of quick wickets and put the opposition on the back foot. Lucknow have their new star, Ayush Badoni and an experienced Marcus Stoinis at the crease, both have the ability to take on bowlers. It will be interesting to see who will come out on top. Josh Hazlewood comes back into the attack for Bangalore.
