IPL 2022, KKR vs LSG: Lucknow beat Kolkata by 2 runs in a last-over thriller, confirm a playoffs spot

Quinton de Kock struck a magnificent hundred and shared a record opening stand with skipper KL Rahul as Lucknow Super Giants beat Kolkata Knight Riders by just two runs in a last-ball IPL thriller to seal their play-off spot

WHAT-A-GAME, with so many momentum shifts throughout the last 20 overs, Lucknow Super Giants sealed the game by the narrowest margin, 2 runs, as they booked a place in playoffs by registering a win over Kolkata Knight Riders at DY Patil Stadium on Wednesday night.


Kolkata's majestic run-chase was a classic example of a T20 contest given they lost both the openers early. But Shreyas Iyer stitched a counter-attacking 50-run stand with Nitish Rana first. Then another fifty-run stand with Sam Billings in 24 balls kept Kolkata the mammoth chase on track. Kolkata lost momentum in the death overs. However, Rinku Singh and Sunil Narine kept KKR in the hunt with some big blows. With 21 needed off the last over, Rinku tonked a four, and two back-to-back sixes off the first three balls before a one-handed stunner from Evin Lewis ended the southpaw innings. Stoinis cleaned up Umesh Yadav off the last delivery thus winning the game for Lucknow.
