Gautam Gambhir is the current mentor of the Lucknow Super Giants club. His team’s IPL campaign began with a loss to the Gujarat Titans franchise.
However, they made sure to finish the job against Chennai Super Kings in Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium. In the game, the LSG bowlers were completely clueless against the CSK hitters.
As Lucknow Super Kings chased down 211 with six wickets and three balls to spare, KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock set the tone with a 99-run opening stand, Evin Lewis hammered an unbeaten 55 off 23 balls, and Ayush Badoni cameoed near the end. The chasing team won the match for the sixth time in seven games this IPL.
Previously, after being put in, CSK never took its foot off the gas pedal. Robin Uthappa hammered a 50 off 27 balls, including eight fours and a six, to aid the side to a formidable 210 for 7. Shivam Dube smashed 49 off 30 balls.
Gautam Gambhir and his wife have an amusing conversation
Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir, the coach of the Lucknow Super Giants, and his wife Natasa Jain had a humorous exchange on Instagram.
It all started when Gambhir came to Instagram and shared a photo of his wife and children with the caption, “Pressure of them watching is more than that of the crowd”.
His post quickly became popular on the internet. Interestingly, the post piqued the interest of his wife Natasa Jain, who chose to respond as well. “See u after 2 months then” she wrote.
Meanwhile, for his outstanding striking, Evin Lewis was selected Player of the Match. The West Indies international maintained his composure throughout his batting against CSK.
“Very good pitch, once you get in you can score freely. I just backed my strengths and ability, I think he is a very confident guy, I saw him (Badoni) in the nets, I just try to keep it simple and want to do the best for the team,” he said after the match.
