Lucknow Super Giants took to social media to post an emotional message for their fans following a heavy loss against SunRisers Hyderabad on Wednesday. LSG failed to accelerate as they ended up scoring just 165 runs despite losing only 4 wickets and in response, SRH completed the run chase in just 9.4 overs. It was a brilliant batting performance from Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma as they completely dominated the LSG bowlers. “We’re all hurt by that game. But we are so grateful for each blue flag at Uppal, and every social media post or comment in our support despite this defeat. This team has shown resilience over the last two years, and we’ll show it again. Thank you for sticking with us, LSG Brigade,” it read.

LSG’s IPL 2024 playoff dreams were dealt a massive blow following the heavy loss against SRH. On the other hand, SRH are third with 14 points and the big win improved their Net Run Rate (NRR) quite a bit.

LSG captain KL Rahul was “lost for words” after the defeat.

We have watched that kind of batting on tv. But this is unreal batting. Everything seemed to find the middle of the bat. Kudos to their skills. They have worked hard on their six hitting skills. They didn’t give us a chance to know what the pitch played in the second innings.”

Once you are on the losing side, there are questions marks on the decisions taken. We were 40-50 runs short. When we lost wickets in the powerplay, we couldn’t get any momentum. Ayush and Nicky batted well to get us to 166. But even if we would have got 240, they could have chased it as well,” Rahul said after the match.
