Lucknow: It has been a full week since the new season of IPL started but it seems that Sunrisers Hyderabad are still unable to come out of the failure of last season. After a crushing defeat in the very first match, Sunrisers Hyderabad got defeated once again. Lucknow Super Giants defeated Hyderabad by 5 wickets in their home ground. With this, KL Rahul’s team got the second win of the season registered in their account.
For the second time in three months, the pitch of the T20 match in Lucknow was more discussed than the match and proved to be completely opposite to the T20 philosophy. Indian skipper Hardik Pandya expressed his displeasure over the pitch of the India-New Zealand T20 match at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium in January, but his brother Krunal Pandya would hardly have any objection as his strong all-round performance took Lucknow to victory. Delivered.
Krunal Pandya on song here!
Picks up two key wickets in as many deliveries.

Hyderabad batsmen could score only 121 runs in front of Lucknow spinners. In such a situation, the victory of Lucknow seemed already certain. Despite this, the team had to struggle for this. Captain KL Rahul played an innings of 35 runs and returned after ensuring the team’s victory. However, Kyle Mayers, who scored explosive half-centuries in the last two matches, was out early this time, while Deepak Hooda failed for the third consecutive match. Lucknow had lost 2 wickets for 45 runs.
From here, Captain Rahul made a strong partnership of 55 runs with Krunal, which closed all the doors of return for Hyderabad.
