Cricket is a funny game, they say. Every time one tends to believe that they have seen everything that the game possibly has to offer, the game surprises everyone. Another hilarious incident happened during the Lucknow Super Giants innings in the match against Chennai Super Kings.

After they were asked to chase 211, Lucknow captain KL Rahul lost his shoe midway while taking a run in the first over of the match. The commentators pointed out that it could be due to the wet conditions on the ground. However, it made for a hilarious view for spectators as the game had to be paused for a brief interval while he put it on again.

Here is the video of the incident:

The incident, however, was indicative of how difficult it was for the fielding team and it eventually cost them the match. Quinton de Kock's 61 might have set the tone for the run chase but eventually, it was Evin Lewis' half-century and a quickfire cameo from Ayush Badhoni who finished off the chase for Lucknow with 3 balls remaining.

Earlier, Robin Uthappa, Shivam Dube and MS Dhoni were the star with the bat for CSK as the Men in Yellow reached 210. But it was Ravi Bishnoi's 2/24 in a game where bowlers seemed to struggled which also proved to be an advantage for the Lucknow team.
