But this wicket didn't hinder Lucknow's chances to win the game as managed to scrap through and chase down the total with a margin of one wicket. After the game, LSG captain KL Rahul was proud of his team's lower order and further expressed that he needs to make drastic improvements in the side. 

Rahul also has words of praise for Nicholas Pooran, Marcus Stoinis and Ayush Badoni for their contribution to the win. He said,  "Not ideal for me, I want to score more runs and get the strike rate up as well. We've played on two tough Lucknow wickets, and today we lost 3 wickets so I went slower. I wanted to stay till the end and play with Nicky. Batting 5 ,6, 7 is the toughest positions to play and that's where games are won and lost. We know about the power in Marcus and Nicky, and Ayush has come along as well. He's played 2-3 knocks last year, and he's continued to perform well for us."
