Talking about the match, Lucknow Super Giants failed to chase down the target and were officially out of the IPL 2023 race to the final.
Upon losing the match, LSG captain Krunal Pandya said: “(What went wrong) We were in a really good position. Everything started when I played that shot when it was not on and I take complete responsibility. We should have played better cricket there. I take all the blame for where we ended up. (On the pitch in the second half) The wicket was good, it was coming nicely onto the bat. It played exactly how it did in the first innings. We had to bat better. We needed to take responsibility and play better cricket but we did not play that way. (On QDK exclusion) It is always a tough decision. He is a world-class batter. It is just that Kyle had a better record here. We felt that we could go with Kyle. (On opening with spin) Their batters bat really well against pace so I thought we could bowl spin at the start.”
