Mumbai: Lucknow Supergiants have won their first game of the season when they defeated Ravindra Jadeja-led Chennai Super Kings by 6 wickets in a cut-throat game. Put to bat first, CSK put 210 on board with the contribution of many members of the team.
“We had a very good start, Robbie and Shivam Dube were playing brilliantly. We had a good start, but in the fielding, we have to take catches then you’ll win matches. We should have taken those chances. There was a lot of dew, the ball wasn’t sticking to the hand,” said Ravindra Jadeja after losing to Lucknow Supergiants.
“Next time, we have to practise with the wet ball. We batted brilliantly in the top-six and in the middle-overs. The wicket was very good to bat on. As a bowling unit, we need to execute our plans,” he added.
“It was unbelievable. To winning these type of close games is always good for the team morale. Great win, boys batted really well. We came out fighting and to come out on top is always special. We thought we can chase down 210. We understood after the first two or three overs that it was a really good wicket. I’d say it was a par score on this wicket actually. It was nice to get out there and just bat, I wasn’t in too much rush,” said Quinton de Kock who scored 61 runs for LSG
