Rahul give Mumbai no respite

Twenty-six runs were required off the final over and MI lost by 18 runs, chasing 200 for victory.

Lucknow Super Giants won not only because KL Rahul led from the front and scored a mighty fine century

but collectively they played better cricket than their opponents to thoroughly deserve their victory.

Super Giants went to eight points from six games, while after six straight defeats, MI’s fall from the perch has been spectacular.

In the 16th over during Super Giants’ innings, as Jasprit Bumrah came back for his final spell, the Brabourne Stadium DJ belted out: ‘Boom, Boom Bumrah’. MI looked flat on the field and their fans were subdued.
