Ayush Badoni: Lucknow’s Evin Lewis lauds ‘confident guy’ Ayush Badoni | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: After taking his side to victory with his unbeatable knock of 55 runs against Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League on Thursday, Lucknow Super Giants' batter Evin Lewis hailed teammate and the latest find of the league Ayush Badoni as a "confident guy". It was a complete team effort as Lucknow chased down a big target of 211 in 19.3 overs against Chennai to register a six-wicket win here at the Brabourne Stadium. "I think he (Badoni) is a very confident guy. I saw him in the nets," said Lewis of the youngster, who contributed 19 not out off just nine balls in Lucknow's six-wicket win, at the post-match presentation ceremony. Badoni scored a 41-ball 54 in Lucknow's first match against Gujarat Titans to announce his arrival on the big stage. The dew made life difficult ...

Dwayne Bravo goes past Lasith Malinga to become IPL’s highest wicket-taker | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Chennai Super Kings' veteran all-rounder Dwayne Bravo on Thursday went past Lasith Malinga to become the Indian Premier League's (IPL) highest wicket-taker during his team's match against Lucknow Super Giants here. Bravo, who was tied with Sri Lankan legend Malinga at the top spot with 170 wickets, dismissed LSG batter Deepak Hooda in the 18th over of the innings to break the former Mumbai Indians' bowler's record. Bravo would have had his record wicket a lot earlier had Moeen Ali not dropped a simple catch to let off Quinton de Kock. Bravoooo Legend!

LSG v CSK: Evin Lewis, the poker-faced assassin, Bishnoi, the zid-zap-zoom bowler, Dushmantha’s fielding woes

Evin Lewis adores Chris Gayle. He blasts sixes like him too. But unlike him, he doesn’t pour emotion on the field. Mostly, he projects a deadpan face, concealing both angst and joy. Even after bludgeoning an unbeaten 55 off 23 balls that architected a heist, he did not, forget high-fiving or fist pumping, let out half a smile. With a blank expression on his face, he shook hands with fellow batsman Ayush Badoni, who seemed over the moon. Lewis casually removed his helmet and gloves and dragged himself back to the dug-out, nearly oblivious to the applause of his own teammates. The only time he shed emotion was when a shot that he intended, a thump down the ground off Shivam Dube, did not beget the required result. It turned out to be a four and not a six. He winced momentarily before wea...

IPL 2022, LSG vs CSK: Chennai Super Kings, Lucknow Super Giants aim to bounce back from opening losses | Cricket News – Times of India

Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants both endured losses in their opening matches of IPL 2022. While it was a crushing 6-wicket defeat for CSK against Kolkata Knight Riders, LSG lost an edge-of-the-seat thriller to Gujarat Titans. A common factor in their defeats was the failure of the top-order, and Chennai as well as Lucknow would look to correct that at the Brabourne Stadium when they square off on Thursday. Interestingly, the first four matches in this year’s IPL have been won by teams chasing and it is evident that dew is playing a factor in the outcome of matches. Both CSK and LSG lost their opening games after batting first, and they are likely to prefer the chase if the coin falls in their favour.
