Finally, Lucknow Super Giants qualify for the playoffs in the IPL 2022 after defeating Kolkata Knight Riders. The reaction of Gautam Gambhir goes viral after the match.
The animated reaction of Gautam Gambhir after the victory of LSG over KKR boosted the fans’ emotions. The two teams played against each other on Wednesday at the DY Patil Stadium. Gradually it appeared that LSG was going towards their third consecutive defeat. At this moment, Gambhir’s reaction summed up the LSG fans’ emotions.
Rinku Singh of KKR made 18 runs in the first three balls. It took the combined efforts of Evin Lewis and Marcus Stoinis to dismiss Singh. His wicket turned the around game completely.
Lucknow Super Giants got tensed as Rinku almost completed the chase. However, Stoinis could successfully defend the required three runs in the last two balls. After the victory of LSG, Gautam Gambhir displayed his raw emotions.
A video showing Gambhir’s reaction is going viral on social media. The mentor of the Lucknow team is celebrating his team’s victory aggressively.
The former KKR captain hugged his fellow mates and jumped in joy as his team made a thrilling comeback. Gautam’s reaction also attracted netizens at the beginning of the IPL 2022 season.
The veteran has double wins with Kolkata Knight Riders in his name in the previous season of IPL. For the first time, he took up a coaching job in his career. Earlier, a video of his speech to the players went viral on social media. The speech is quite motivational and uplifts the spirit of teammates after a big loss.
However, the KL Rahul’s team has confirmed its position in the playoffs. Still, there is no guarantee of them reaching the topmost positions and playing in the finals.
Rajasthan Royals are in the third spot in the table. They can cross Lucknow if they manage to win against Chennai Super Kings. The Sanju Samson-led team holds a better run rate than Lucknow Super Giants. So, it could haunt back the LSG.
