IPL 2022: Quinton de Kock knew he would make it count the day he got going, says LSG assistant coach Vijay Dahiya | Cricket News – Times of India

NAVI MUMBAI: A bit of frustration came out in Quinton de Kock's uncharacteristic celebration after his blazing hundred against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here. At the post-match press conference on Wednesday, Lucknow Super Giants' (LSG) assistant coach Vijay Dahiya cited the possible reason behind the charged-up celebration by the South African opener. "I will speak about Quinton. Sometimes he got runs, sometimes he didn't (in the ongoing IPL). When we practiced, or when he was knocking or taking throw-downs, he was always saying he never felt so good and how come it happened that he wasn't able to score," Dahiya said. "He also said the day he got going, he would make it count and he did that today (Wednesday night). And the way they (De Kock and KL R...

IPL 2022, KKR vs LSG: Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul feels his team could have been on losing side against Kolkata Knight Riders | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul feels that his team could have ended on the losing side during the thrilling clash against Kolkata Knight Riders. A blistering century by Quinton de Kock and an attacking half-century by KL Rahul saw LSG defeat KKR in a nerve-wracking IPL 2022 match by 2 runs at the Dr DY Patil Stadium here on Wednesday. "I should probably get paid more for games like this. We had missed games like this, in this season. Haven't been many games that have gone down to the last ball, maybe some which went to the last over. Happy to be on the other side. Could easily have been on the losing side and have gone back home thinking we lost due to some poor cricket. Good way to finish the last game of the league season. Credit to both teams to make such a brilliant g...

IPL 2022, KKR vs LSG: One of the best games of cricket I have played, says Shreyas Iyer | Cricket News – Times of India

NAVI MUMBAI: The two-run loss against Lucknow Super Giants knocked Kolkata Knight Riders out of the IPL but that did not stop losing captain Shreyas Iyer to describe it as "one of the best games" that he has ever been part of. After being down and out chasing 211, KKR brought the equation down to five off three balls with the help of Rinku Singh. However, LSG somehow managed to eke out a thrilling last ball win to qualify for play-offs and dash KKR hopes at the same time.

IPL 2022: Rahul, de Kock help Lucknow seal playoff spot, show Kolkata the door

Lucknow Super Giants had racked up the records. Highest opening stand ever in the IPL, between Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul. Third-highest individual score ever in the IPL, from de Kock. The first time in the league’s history that a team batting first hadn’t lost a single wicket in the full 20 overs. But Kolkata Knight Riders stunned LSG with a brave chase. They kept swinging fours and sixes regardless of the wickets they were constantly losing. And Rinku Singh seemed to have landed the knockout blow – with 21 needed off the last over, he had clubbed a four and two sixes off the first three balls from Marcus Stoinis. Another two runs were scrambled off the fourth and KKR needed a mere three off the last two deliveries. Evin Lewis had played his last match on April 7, six weeks ago. He ...

IPL 2022: de Kock, KL Rahul post highest opening stand in tournament history

Quinton de Kock provided a batting masterclass enroute to a sensational hundred and alongside skipper K L Rahul, fired Lucknow Super Giants to 210 for no loss against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League on Wednesday. More than 60 games into the IPL, the surfaces are getting tougher for strokeplay and Rahul thought it was better to put runs on the board. Both Rahul and de Kock got the measure of the wicket in the powerplay, reaching 44 for no loss, before flaunting their wide range of strokes on way to their unbeaten 210-run stand, the highest ever opening partnership in the history of the tournament. The South African hammered 10 sixes and as many fours in his 70-ball unbeaten 140, while Rahul collected four sixes and three fours in his 51-ball 68 not out. Highest openin...

IPL 2022: Desperate measures for both Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants | Cricket News – Times of India

A win is what both Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants will be desperately looking at when they play their last league match of this IPL at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday. LSG, with 16 points, have one foot in the playoffs and a win will guarantee them a berth. Knowing that four teams (Rajasthan Royals, LSG, Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore) can end up at 16 points, the IPL debutants would not like to take any chances and get into a complicated net-runrate equation to qualify. A big win on Wednesday can see them qualify as the second-best side after Gujarat Titans. For KKR, a win will see them finish on 14 points and can only guarantee them a waiting-list ticket, the confirmation of which will depend on how some of the other teams fare in this last ...

Brendon McCullum rues KKR’s power play struggles

Kolkata Knight Riders were found wanting on more than one front, but head coach Brendon McCullum singled out their struggles in the power play, as a disappointing IPL campaign neared its end.

IPL 2022: Lucknow Super Giants go atop as KKR bowled out for 101

Until the Hulk aka Marcus Stoinis decided to plunder Shivam Mavi in the 19th over, Lucknow’s innings was in threat of falling for a par total on a sluggish pitch. They were 142 for 4 in the 18th over but it took just five balls to change it. On a pitch that was holding up, where previous evidence from Andre Russell, who wasn’t given his full quota of four overs despite a good spell, was clear that you can mix up the pace but have to hit the pitch to make the ball hold, Mavi strangely chose to float his balls fuller. Bad mistake. Stonis likes to shuffle to the off, and tee off the on side and he walloped three sixes and though he got out, Jason Holder smashed two more as 30 runs came that over. They would end up with 176 and KKR would fall way short. With Stoinis, it’s the big shoulders,...
