The match between Lucknow Super Giants and Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday quickly escalated when the crowd got involved in heated exchange of words with LSG members near dugout. The things further escalated when Sunrisers Hyderabad was denied a no ball despite the ball appearing to be above batter Heinrich Klaasen waist line.
Heinrich was shocked and disturbed with the leg umpire decision and was followed by unruly behavior from the crowd.
Klaasen and Abdul Samad lost the flow as the match got halted to a few minutes. Once the innings were resumed, Klaasen got dismissed in the same over after scoring 47 runs. In the final seven deliveries, SRH was able to add just 9 runs. Eventually, SRH gave a target of 183 runs to LSG.
During interview, Klassen expressed his disappointment with the crowd and umpiring decisions.
Then, LSG came to chase the target. They lost Kyle Mayers on just 12 runs. Then Mankad and de Kock together added 42 runs on board. Markande dismissed de Kock on 29(18) balls. Mankad was brilliant with bat and slammed a half century. Marcus Stoinis gave a great support by scoring 40(25).
Finally Nicholas Pooran and Prerak Mankad guided LSG to a victory by 7 wickets. Prerak Mankad was awarded with Player of the Match award.
