The 26th match of the 2023 Indian Premier League was played on April 19 between Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants. In this match held at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, Lucknow defeated the hosts by 10 runs. This was the first win for Lucknow Super Giants against Rajasthan Royals. Batting first, KL Rahul’s side scored 154 runs for 7 wickets. To achieve the target of 155 runs for victory, the Rajasthan team could only manage 144 runs for 6 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. After this win, Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul looked very happy. After the match he said we scored fewer runs but made up for it with excellent bowling.

Speaking after the match, KL Rahul said: ‘After the 10-over game, we gave the message that 165-run total is good here. So at least we try to get to the score of 160 runs. Rajasthan Royals is a quality team. They have good bowlers. We were able to score perhaps 10 fewer runs, which was made up for by some excellent bowling. There was no spray, it was good for both teams. After coming here, we think that the score of 180 is a challenge.

Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul further said: “When Trent Boult bowled the first over, I told Kyle Meyers that the ball was not reaching the bat properly.” We calculate it better. If there had been some associations in the middle order, we could have been better. The Rajasthan team is very strong up to number four. Our plan was to get him out early.
