Dube’s disastrous over – his first of the innings – was discussed by former cricketers and fans alike. Virender Sehwag responded to Sunil Gavaskar’s final stroke in his own style, attacking the Indian for hitting such hard lengths on a surface that aided the batters. Chennai Super Kings were looking good to start their 2022 Indian Premier League campaign with 210/7 on Thursday. KL Rahul’s army still needed 34 runs off 12 deliveries to win the match after Lucknow Super Giants’ innings ended after the 18th over. Ayush Badoni and Evin Lewis did all the damage in the 19th over when CSK all-rounder Shivam Dube conceded 25 runs in his over. Virender Sehwag made a tweet about Will Smith punching Chris Rock at the Academy Awards.

Ayush Badoni (unbeaten 19 off 9 balls) and Evin Lewis (unbeaten 55 off 23 deliveries) sealed LSG’s first win of the season after captain KL Rahul (40) and Quinton de Kock (61) established the side’s momentum in the chase for 211 runs. DY Patil Stadium will host the Super Giants on April 4 when they face the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Punjab Kings will face CSK at Brabourne Stadium on Sunday, April 3.
