Debutant Mayank Yadav stars as LSG gets a victory of 21 runs over PBKS.

The stellar performance by debutant Mayank Yadav’s helped his team, the Lucknow Super Giants, to a 21-run victory over the Punjab Kings. He played a pivotal role in securing the win for LSG.

Both Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow laid a solid foundation for the Punjab Kings in their pursuit of 200, but they fell prey to Mohsin Khan and Mayank simultaneously.

Earlier, the Lucknow Super Giants, led by stand-in skipper Nicholas Pooran, won the toss and chose to bat first against the Punjab Kings in Lucknow. Despite losing early wickets in the powerplay with KL Rahul and Devdutt Padikkal failing to capitalize on their starts, Quinton de Kock, Krunal Pandya, and Nicholas Pooran played impressive innings to power LSG to a total of 199/8 in 20 overs. Despite wickets falling at regular intervals, there was always a batsman at one end who contributed significantly, ensuring a formidable total for the hosts. As a precaution due to his recent return from injury, KL Rahul was designated as the impact player for Lucknow.
