KKR vs LSG: IPL 2022 is now slowly moving towards its last phase. Two teams have confirmed their place to reach the playoffs and many teams have also been out of this league. Kolkata Knight Riders team was also out after losing the match against Lucknow Super Giants on Wednesday. Had KKR won this match, it might not have been out of the playoffs. A wrong decision of the umpire was also involved in this defeat of KKR.
KKR sinks due to umpire’s decision
Poor umpiring has been seen in IPL 2022 only this entire season. Something similar was also seen in the match between KKR and Lucknow. KKR’s team lost this match by just 2 runs and their dream of reaching the playoffs was also shattered. At one time it seemed that KKR’s lethal batsman Rinku Singh would comfortably win this match for his team. But he returned after getting out in the end. But the ball on which Marcus Stoinis dismissed Rinku was a no ball and now there is a lot of ruckus on this matter. In fact, it was seen in the replays that at the time of the ball on which Rinku was out, Stoinis’s leg was far ahead of the crease.

Then Evin Lewis took a brilliant catch
A lot was seen in the last over of the match played between KKR and Lucknow. KKR had to get 21 runs in this over. Rinku had also given 18 runs in the first four balls with the help of fours and sixes. KKR needed only 3 runs off the last two balls, but then Rinku tried to end the match by playing a long shot off Stoinis. But the ball went straight to Evin Lewis. Lewis was far away from the ball and it seemed that this catch would be missed. Then Lewis dived and took a brilliant catch with one hand. From there the match was snatched from KKR’s hand.
