The Rajasthan Royals (RR) registered their 8th victory in the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 after beating the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by 24 runs on Sunday at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

RR bounced back with a 24-run victory courtesy of Yashasvi Jaiswal’s crucial 41 at 

the highest and Trent Boult’s economical figures of 2/18.

LSG were 15/0 after two overs, chasing 179 until Trent Boult removed Quinton de Kock and Ayush Badoni on successive deliveries. While Neesham took 

a pointy catch inside the circle to dismiss de Kock, Badoni was trapped LBW by the left-arm seamer.

Before being caught by Jaiswal inside the circle off Prasidh Krishna’s bowling, KL Rahul struck an excellent lofted shot for a maximum. LSG was ranked 34-3 at the top of the powerplay, putting them in a difficult situation. Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya stitched 

a vital partnership for the 4th wicket after both batters added a six each.
LSG were 66-3 at 

the tip of 10 overs 

and therefore the fifty partnership was up between the duo. Ravi Ashwin put an end to the partnership after Jos Buttler and Riyan Parag produced 

a superb relay catch to dismiss Krunal Pandya.

Hooda hit his half-century in the 15th over, and LSG needed 72 runs off 30 deliveries. Hooda was stumped by the opposition captain, and Chahal took the crucial wicket of the all-rounder.

Obed McCoy dismissed both Jason Holder and Dushmantha Chameera in the same over. After Marcus Stoinis’ maximum, the equation was modified to 49 of 12 points.

LSG needed 34 runs off six deliveries, and the penultimate over yielded 15 runs. Stoinis drove in six runs on the first pitch but was caught in the outfield on the second, leaving LSG 25 runs short. Earlier, RR, who opted to bat first, made two changes – Jimmy Neesham and Obed McCoy were named 

within the eleven.
Yashasvi Jaiswal was off the mark with consecutive fours but Avesh Khan provided 

the primary wicket for LSG after the seamer rattled the stumps of Jos Buttler.

Sanju Samson, the skipper, assisted Jaiswal in maintaining the boundaries. Jaiswal hit three fours and a six in the final over of the powerplay, scoring 21 runs.

The fifty partnership was up for the second wicket when Samson added three fours. Jason Holder broke the 64-run stand as the RR captain was caught at a deep point.

RR were 90/2 at the halfway stage thanks to Devdutt Padikkal’s four and six. In the 12th over, Ayush Badoni took a wicket, dismissing Jaiswal with a catch off his bowling. Bishnoi joined the wickets tally after Padikkal’s slog sweep 

didn’t clear the ropes 

within the 14th over.
Jimmy Neesham joined Riyan Parag 

because the duo added two fours and a six 

within the next three overs. RR were 149/4 before they lost two wickets 

within the 18th over. While Riyan Parag holed 

bent the deep, Neesham was run-out for 14.
Trent Boult crunched consecutive fours 

within the penultimate over as RR added 24 runs 

within the final two overs which helped them register a first-innings total of 178/6.

Rajasthan Royals defeated Lucknow Super Giants 154/8 (Deepak Hooda 59, Marcus Stoinis 27; Trent Boult 2-18) by 24 runs (Yashasvi Jaiswal 41, Devdutt Padikkal 39; Ravi Bishnoi 2-31).
