IPL 2023, KKR Vs LSG: Lucknow Claim Their Spot In Play-Offs With A Tight 1-Run Victory - In Pics

In one of the closest matches played in the 2023 IPL, LSG held their nerve against the dangerous Rinku Singh of KKR to secure a spot in the play-offs with a last-ball finish that saw them win by 1 run. Earlier, Nicholas Pooran struck a 30-ball 58 to power LSG to 176-8. With nothing to lose, KKR batters Jason Roy and Venkatesh Iyer went all guns blazing, scoring 61 runs for the first wicket. What followed was a series of wickets, with the game looking very much in the clutches of the Krunal Pandya-led side. Rinku Singh (67 off 33 balls), however, had other plans, as he scored his 4th fifty this season, which have all come while chasing. needing 8 runs off the last ball, Rinku hit a six, which was not enough to register an upset over LSG. In all possibilities, LSG will either face either Mumbai Indians or Royal Challengers Bangalore in the play-offs. Rajasthan Royals, however, have the slimmest chance of qualifying, too.
