The UPT20 match featured a last-ball drama in which the Lucknow Falcons overcame the Kanpur Superstars by two wickets despite chasing a huge 222-run goal. Over 400 runs were scored over both innings at Kanpur’s Green Park Stadium, delighting the crowd.
The Kanpur Superstars, who were given the opportunity to bat first, sped through the powerplay after opening batsmen Saurabh Dubey (56) and Ansh Yadav (61) wreaked havoc on the Lucknow Falcons’ bowlers to record the highest powerplay score of the Jio UPT20 tournament with 80/0.
Following the first dismissal of Dubey, Sameer Rizvi (69) seized the reins and joined up with Ansh Yadav to continue the assault. Ansh Yadav got his half-century in 33 balls as the middle overs progressed, while Sameer Rizvi did the same in 24 balls. The Kanpur Superstars scored 16 runs in the last over, riding the power of the bat of Sandeep Tomar, to enable them to a commanding total of 221/5.
The Lucknow Falcons responded by scoring 67/1 on their power play. Aanjaneya Suryavanshi and Harsh Tyagi (46), despite the arduous aim in front of them, created a fantastic platform. The partnership ended when Ankit Rajpoot ended Suryavanshi’s innings of 39 runs in 15 balls. Captain Priyam Garg (54) came third and was in excellent shape. The game was fairly matched at 10 overs, with Lucknow Falcons at 114/1.
The top-order brilliance with captain Priyam Garg (54) and Harsh Tyagi (41), together with the addition of Aaraadhya Yadav (50*) for the finishing touches, helped the Lucknow Falcons pull off a spectacular run chase. The last over required 11 runs, and after two dot balls, Aaradhya, who was under pressure, hit a six and was dropped twice in quick succession, scraping two runs off each. Aaradhya Yadav, who needed one run off the final ball to get his fifty, cleared the extra cover boundary, giving the Lucknow Falcons a dramatic victory.
With this win, Lucknow Falcons jumped to the 2nd spot in the UP T20 League Points Table. The undefeated Noida Super Kings are still on the top of the UP T20 League Points Table with 3 victories.
