Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul must have breathed a sigh of relief after the match against Kolkata Knight Riders. With this win, Lucknow Super Giants have become the second team to reach the playoffs. Now for the remaining two places, there will be a fierce competition between five teams. Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians may have been out of the race for the playoffs, but they can still spoil the equations of the rest of the teams. After a thrilling two-run victory for Lucknow Super Giants, KL Rahul jokingly said that I should get extra money for such matches.
Rahul said after the match, ‘Maybe I should get more money for matches like this. We have lost matches like this this season. There have not been many matches that have gone to the last ball. I am happy that we were able to win this match. We could have lost this match and then we returned from the ground like we played bad cricket.
Rahul further said, ‘It was good to win the last match of the league like this. Credit goes to both the teams that they played such a good match. I think we were better, three runs were left in the last two balls. We batted well. That catch from Evin Lewis was brilliant. Mohsin Khan has shown a great game for us in the last few matches, the way he is playing, he will soon be seen playing for Team India.
