Lucknow Super Giants are locking horns with Mumbai Indians in the 63rd match of the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. Meanwhile, the game is being held at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
Talking about the game, Mumbai Indians’ captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bowl first. Batting first, Lucknow Super Giants lost their opening pair – Deepak Hooda (5) and Quinton de Kock (16) for cheap scores.
Prerak Mankad also had a bad day at the office as he was dismissed for a first-ball duck. However, skipper Krunal Pandya tried to show some decent resistance along with Marcus Stoinis.
Piyush Chawla takes his 20th wicket for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023
Meanwhile, experienced leg-spinner, Piyush Chawla continued his good form with the ball as he took yet another wicket for Mumbai Indians. During the ongoing game against Lucknow Super Giants, Piyush Chawla got rid of LSG’s wicketkeeper-batsman, Quinton de Kock in the first ball of the sixth over.
It was also Chawla’s 20th wicket for Mumbai Indians in the sixteenth edition of the IPL. He bowled three overs wherein he gave away 26 runs and took one wicket to his name.
Earlier, the experienced campaigner was picked for a price of Rs 50 lakh at the IPL 2023 mini-auction held in Kochi in late December 23, 2022. There were naysayers slamming the MI’s decision to go for Chawla as many considered that the leggie went past his prime. Needless to say, he silenced the critics and let his performance do the talking.
