Low-scoring match at Lucknow: Titans triumph over Super Giants in a nail-biter
The match was played at the Lucknow Super Giants' home ground, and both teams were eager to bat first. However, the pitch was a nightmare for the batsmen, and it was evident from the very beginning. The Titans took a whopping 15 balls to hit their first boundary, and Shubman Gill got out for a duck early in his innings. Hardik Pandya, determined to get his team back on track, promoted himself to No.3 but couldn't get going in the powerplay. The pressure started mounting, and it was Wriddhiman Saha who stepped up and gave the Titans the push they needed in the powerplay.

Hardik Pandya's strike rate was still below 100, and David Miller wasn't able to find the boundaries in the 16th and 17th overs. Bishnoi allowed the opponents' batters to score freely while Hardik finally showcased his skills by scoring 19 runs in the over and completing his fifty to the delight of his team. Nevertheless, Naveen bowled a fantastic penultimate over, and Marcus Stoinis took two more wickets in the final over to restrict the Titans to a total of 135.

The Lucknow Super Giants had a good start, scoring 53 runs in the powerplay, indicating that they were well-positioned to achieve their target comfortably.

Although Rashid Khan got rid of Mayers, Rahul, and Krunal Pandya kept the scoreboard ticking. As the Lucknow Super Giants reached the halfway mark with 80 runs on the scoreboard, the Titans' camp became visibly frustrated after Abhinav Manohar gave Krunal Pandya a second chance. Rashid's last over was played without any issues, and after that, Rahul scored his fifty, followed by Krunal hitting Rahul Tewatia for a six. The Lucknow Super Giants had scored 105 runs for only one wicket down in 14 overs, which put them in a favorable position to win the game.

But Noor Ahmed's stumping of Krunal in the 15th over started a series of events that turned the game on its head.

The following two deliveries saw two more batters run out, leaving the LSG team in a state of shock.
