Lucknow Super Giants and Punjab Kings are facing each other at MCA stadium in the 42nd match of the ongoing season of Indian Premier League. It’s the battle of two best friends KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Punjab Kings captain Mayank Agarwal won the toss and decided to field first.
During the batting of Lucknow Super Giants, a run out between Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda caught the attention of so many cricket fans. Everybody knows about the fight between Krunal and Deepak when they both were part of the Baroda team.
Today, a runout dismissal involving both of them spiced up the things on social media. In the 14th over of the game, Krunal pulled a short ball towards deep square leg. Pandya called for two runs. But Deepak Hooda couldn’t make the crease in time for 2nd run and fell short due to a freak direct hit by Bairstow from a long distance. After the run out, Krunal wasn’t happy and gave a scary stare at Deepak Hooda.
This incident created a lot of buzz on social media. Here are some of Top twitter reactions:
God: Today I am going to fulfill wishes of mass.
"So everyone's gonna be rich?"
God: No, a Krunal-Hooda mix-up run-out. #IPL

Krunal-Hooda involved in a run out and Krunal looks really pissed. Well done, scriptwriters.

Rare failure for KL Rahul in IPL 2022
Lucknow didn’t get a good start after being invited to bat first. They lost the early wicket of their captain KL Rahul who was in great form. Quinton De Kock tried to anchor the innings but got out at the wrong time when LSG needed an acceleration. Lucknow couldn’t recover from it and managed to score only 153 runs in 20 overs.
Lucknow Super Giants is placed in the upper half of the points table. They desperately need a win in this game to increase their chances for Top 2 position. While Punjab Kings would need to win this game to reach the upper half of points table.
