Lucknow turn giant killers with six-wicket win over CSK in high-scoring game

Lucknow Super Giants bounce back from opening game loss to chase down defending champs CSK's 211 thanks to Evin Lewis's explosive half century

Chennai Super Kings posted 211 but ran out of quality bowling options by the end

As Evin Lewis’ 55 off 23 led Lucknow Super Giants to a six-wicket victory.

At the Brabourne Stadium, as well as at Wankhede Stadium, the fielder can be four steps away on the edge of the boundary but the ball will still beat him more often than not

As the small and already quick outfield gets even quicker with the dew. On Thursday night, the moisture was so copious the ball had to be changed in the 16th over of the CSK innings

Evin Lewis’s push helped LSG pull in front. CSK were going full trying to deny the batsmen the space to get under the ball

but whenever they missed by inches, the Trinidadian left-hander either squeezed them square on the off side for fours or belted them for straight sixes.
