New Delhi. So far, the Lucknow Super Giants team has performed brilliantly in IPL 2022. Despite being the first season, this team has won 8 out of 12 matches. But, Lucknow had to face a humiliating defeat on Tuesday against Gujarat Titans. Batting first, Gujarat scored 144 runs. In response, the entire team of Lucknow was all out for 82 runs. The batsmen of Lucknow could not even play the full 20 overs. Team’s mentor Gautam Gambhir was very angry with this defeat. After the match, he took a fierce class of players in the dressing room. Its video has been shared by Lucknow Super Giants from their Instagram account.
Gautam Gambhir said in the video, “There is no harm in losing. In the game of cricket, one team loses and one wins. But we conceded defeat against Gujarat Titans. We were very weak compared to today and in tournaments like IPL, there is no place for weak. We have played good cricket before and have beaten good teams. But, seeing today’s match, it seemed that we did not have any game sense. Gujarat bowled well in this match, no doubt about it. The same is expected from bowlers playing international cricket and we practice day and night for this type of challenge. In such a situation, we should take a lesson.”
