Tilak Varma (26 runs from 22 balls) and cameo of Nehal Wadhera (23 runs from 12 balls) who came to bat as an impact player helps Mumbai to reach 182/8 in 20 over.
Naveen ul Haq (4/38 in 4 overs) shines with the ball for Lucknow. Yash Thakur (3/34 in 4 overs) and Mohsin Khan (1/24 in 3 overs) are the other wicket takers for Lucknow.
Chasing 183 LSG lost wickets at regular intervals and they were never in the chase. They lost half their side for 75 runs inside the first 10 overs. Poor running between the wickets which ends in three run outs also cost them the match.
Marcus Stoinis (40 runs from 27 balls) is the only batter bated well for Lucknow.
Akash Madhwal’s dream spell of 5 wickets for 5 runs in 3.3 overs knocked LSG out of the tournament. Chris Jordan (1/7 in 2 overs) and Piyush Chawla (1/28 in 4 overs) are the other wicket takers for Mumbai.
