The 22-year-old from Delhi revived LSG's innings after Mohammed Shami's three wickets opening spell.

Lucknow Super Giants batter Ayush Badoni played one of the best knocks of IPL 2022. On Monday, he scored a fifty (54 off 41 balls) in his team’s IPL 2022 opener against Gujarat Titans at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

The 22-year-old from Delhi revived LSG’s innings after Mohammed Shami’s three wickets opening spell.

Badoni took time to settle, scoring 13 runs off the first 22 balls before hitting boundaries. He also hit a six off Rashid Khan’s bowling, which was lauded by many. The right-handed batter hogged the headlines when he smashed 52 off just 28 balls for India Under-19 against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup.

Lucknow Super Giants signed him for 20 lakh. Meanwhile, he became the first player to score 50+ runs on his IPL debut, batting at No.6 or below.
