Top Players RELEVENT TALKING POINT
Ruturaj Gaikwad, 26, started the IPL 2023 strong. Gaikwad scored 57 runs against Lucknow after 92 in the season opener. Although His first-innings knock helped the four-time champions score 217 runs. Moeen Ali bowled a masterclass after hitting 19 runs in the first innings. Ali destroyed Lucknow’s batting line-up with four wickets. In four overs, the 35-year-old allowed 26 runs.
After scoring eight runs in Lucknow’s season opener, many predicted that skipper KL Rahul would bounce back. Although The star Indian batsman was again called back to the pavilion after reaching 20 runs. Rahul must improve to help his team win the IPL in 2023.
KL Rahul: According to crictracker journalist Akshit Bhatnagar report KL have stated. It is not at all good after winning the toss loosing the match.
Not the ideal start after winning the toss. The first couple of overs it was a bit sticky and there was a bit of movement, but we did not bowl in the right areas and they got that flier. When you have quality batters in the opposition, they make you pay. Something for us to learn but the way Rutu and Conway played was brilliant. It does take time to learn what lengths to bowl on a surface, but to go for 70 odd in six overs isn’t ideal. We batted well but we didn’t capitalize the small momentum. Kyle (Mayers) is coming off good form, he was smoking them for West Indies and comes here with the same form and intent. Great to see what he’s done with the opportunity. Bishnoi is someone I’ve played with for a while, he gets wickets when things aren’t going well, puts his hand up and contains runs. Good to see different guys putting their hands up. Wouldn’t change the toss decision, we didn’t win because we didn’t capitalize the small moments. We had a good start but couldn’t press on. Not often we’ll find 4-5 guys caught on the boundary ropes, they needed to go over and will go over the next time. We’ll take that in T20 cricket, today the game didn’t go our way but this is the way we want to keep playing.

Terrific high-scoring game. All of us were thinking how the wicket would be. It was the perfect first game that could happen. I thought it would be much slower. But it was a wicket where you could score runs. I was quite surprised with the wicket. But we’ll have to see if we can produce a wicket like this game after game. Fast bowling we need to slightly improve. Need to bowl according to the conditions. WHat is important is to keep an eye as to what the opposition bowlers are doing. One more thing if they’ll have to bowl no no-balls or extra wides. Or they’ll have to play under a new captain. It will be my second warning and then I’ll be off. Only reason we’ve scored those runs is if the surface is nice.
The statement which they have give is one of the most important talking point. Although it is important.
