As it happened: Lucknow vs Chennai
Play started after a delay of 15 minutes due to a wet outfield and rain stopped proceedings in the final over of the first innings. Even after this, the rain continued due to which the officials had to cancel the match.
Hosts LSG were 125/7 in 19.2 overs with the middle-order batsmen reeling at the time of rain stoppage. Ayush Badoni Playing unbeaten 59 off 33 balls.
Badoni stood tall amid the ruins with an exquisite half-century on a poor surface before heavy rain stopped play. This is the first match in the 16th edition of IPL which had to be stopped midway due to rain.
When it rained, Badoni, who came in with 5 for 44, had got his team to a respectable position on a very hard surface.
Badoni hit two fours and four sixes in his 33-ball 59 and his temperament on a surface suited for slower bowlers was worth its weight in gold as it did not look like LSG could cross the 120-run mark.
It was good for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to win the toss and the CSK captain’s decision to bowl first was justified by his bowlers on a surface that certainly isn’t good enough for an interesting T20 contest.
Most of the balls were sticking to the surface and batsmen found it extremely difficult to hit through the line unlike other surfaces such as Moeen Ali (2/13 in 4 overs), Ravindra Jadeja (1/11 in 3 overs) and Mahesh Thikshana ( 2/37 in 4 overs) kept them under tight control and also took wickets at regular intervals.
Such was his dominance that the first six of the innings came in the 15th over when Badoni, coming in at No. 7, lofted Sri Lankan spinner Teekshana over mid-wicket and hit another maximum in the next over. his team.
Dhoni, who correctly assessed the track as “sticky”, brought Moeen into the attack in the fourth over and a flighted delivery inviting Kyle Mayers (14) to break the shackles did the trick as he was caught behind by Ruturaj Gaikwad. Only one skier could be given the wrong time. deep.
Manan Vohra (10) tried a poor lap shot and Kunal Pandya was caught by Ajinkya Rahane in the slips.
The ball of the innings was certainly bowled by Jadeja, who proceeded to take a sharp turn as Marcus Stoinis edged the ball past his outside edge to take a sharp turn and peg the off-stump.
It was indeed a struggle for Karan Sharma to stay on 9 off 16 balls before he dropped a return catch to Moeen Ali.
Badoni and Nicholas Pooran (20) then added 59 runs for the sixth wicket.
