IPL 2022, LSG vs RCB: Watch - Marcus Stoinis shouts in frustration after being bowled by Josh Hazlewood
 

Lucknow Super Giants went on to takedown Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 31st match of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League. Winning the toss, KL Rahul asked the opposition to bat.

Responding to that, Royal Challengers Bangalore posted a well challenging total of 181 runs on the board. Faf du Plessis was the lone warrior who smashed 96 runs and got dismissed in the final over of the game.

Glenn Maxwell and Shahbaz Ahmed were the other batters to cross the 20 runs mark. Chasing the target, Lucknow Super Giants didn't get the expected start as they lost a couple of wickets before the end of the powerplay overs.

However, skipper KL Rahul and Krunal Pandya tried to get the momentum back but had to warm the bench after scoring 30 and 42 runs respectively. In the end, RCB won the match by a margin of 18 runs and are moved to the second spot on the league table.

Very happy with how we are playing: KL Rahul

After losing the match, KL Rahul shared a lot in the post-match presentation about the match. "I think we started really well, after getting 2 wickets in the first over and then give away 50 in the powerplay, we could have done better.

180 on that pitch was 15-20 extra runs we gave away, we couldn't really squeeze in the middle and with the bat as well we needed one in the top three to go deep and the other batters to bat around him and unfortunately we couldn't do that," KL Rahul was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

"We have a really good team, very happy with how we are playing, yes a couple of games we could have done better. I think we started well against Rajasthan and here as well we put them under pressure but we couldn't sustain for much longer.

Everyone has chipped in and everyone looks in good form and everyone scored for us. Important that one or two guys who have a good day they need to dig in and take the team through," he added.

Besides, during LSG's inning, Marcus Stoinis was seen frustrated after being bowled by Josh Hazlewood in the 19th over of the game. Moreover, he was also caught shouting which was recorded on the stump mic.
