PBKS Captain | Shikhar Dhawan

In his post-match presentation, Dhawan said, "They played well, pity that Livi (Livingstone) got injured, that hurt us, he would have come at 4. We started off well, but Mayank bowled well with his pace. It was nice facing him, I was surprised at his pace, but I wanted to use his pace against him, but he bowled the bouncers and the yorkers well. I was quite mindful and asked the batters to use the short side and use his pace, but he bowled into his body (on Bairstow's dismissal) and got him OUT, I said the same to Jitesh as well. But Mohsin bowled really well, he kept a good length and suffocated us. We will have to analyse these defeats, the drop catch did cost us some momentum. That's something we'll have to improve going forward."

LSG Captain | Nicholas Pooran

In his post-match presentation, Pooran said, "Wonderful start, nice to win in front of the home crowd. We had conversations and spoke about getting good starts. Spoke about getting the right combinations. It was a good total. It's a big venue, one side is big, one side short. It's about getting wickets and getting boundaries. It's only going to get challenging. Shikhar and Bairstow played well. They didn't take the game away from us as we got wickets at the right time. Mayank's was the story of the night. That was an inspiring performance, he (Mayank) is a young guy. He showed the entire world how good he is. He is not only fast but also accurate. It's the beauty of the IPL, that gives the local players to perform. Wonderful platform. Every game is an opportunity, expect them to get better with every game. The groundsmen have contributed, as a batsman you can't ask for anything more."

Player of the Match | Mayank Yadav

In his post-match presentation, Yadav said, "Never thought it would be such a good debut. Was nervous before the match. Tried to stick to my pace and aim at the stumps. Was thinking about using slower ones initially, but stuck to the quick ones. The first wicket (Bairstow) was special. It's good to debut at such a young age. Had a few goals, but can't help if injuries come in the way."

That's all from our side!

Another win for the home team as Lucknow Super Giants have finally opened their winning account by defeating Punjab Kings by 21 runs. Young Mayank Yadav is a future star for sure. We will be joining tomorrow now, that's all from our side for today. Thanks and Goodnight!
