Wicket lost by playing bad shots, there was a rush in the small target and there was pressure on the middle order The 57th match of IPL was played between Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants. In this match, LSG got a small target of 144 runs, but in this also they got a crushing 62 runs. KL Rahul was responsible for the defeat of Lucknow. He tried a big shot at the wrong time and lost the wicket. Rahul did a big loss to the team by trying to hit the ball at the wrong time.

KL Rahul realized that there was no big target in front of him. In such a situation, it was the duty of Rahul, who was in form, to give a better start to the team and reach closer to the target. In contrast, the Lucknow captain tried to play a pull shot off Mohammed Shami's delivery without understanding the situation. He could not get into the position to play the shot and was given a simple catch to Wriddhiman Saha. KL Rahul did not even realize that Quinton de Kock, the second opener batsman, had lost his wicket a while back.

So there was no need for him to take any extra risk. Lucknow's middle order was nowhere in sight to chase the target Karan Sharma was debuting for Lucknow and Aayush Badoni's bat has remained silent for the past few encounters. Leaving the run chase on the middle order was heavy for Lucknow. Rahul was playing 8 runs in 16 balls.

They must have felt that the scoreboard should be given some momentum. Had Rahul played a few more overs, the match would have ended much earlier than 20 overs. After Rahul's dismissal, LSG's innings were shattered like a pack of cards. Gujarat Titans became the first team to reach the play-offs of IPL 2022. Batting first after winning the toss, Gujarat scored 144 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in 20 overs.

Shubman Gill played the highest innings of 63 runs for GT. In reply, Lucknow's team was reduced to a score of 82 runs in 13.5 overs. Deepak Hooda scored the highest 27 runs for LSG. Leg spinner Rashid Khan took 4 wickets for GT. Yash Dayal and R Sai Kishore got 2 wickets each.
