Ayush Badoni became the talk of the town when he slammed 54 off 41 balls, laced with 4 fours and 3 sixes in Lucknow Super Giants’ opening match against Gujarat Titans.
With LSG losing 4 early wickets , he took his time before going for the big shots. Cricket experts lauded the maturity he showed. His innings helped the new franchise post 158/6 in the allotted 20 overs.
Ayush expressed his happiness after his knock revived his team’s chances in the contest.
“I couldn’t sleep last night, I was very nervous. After I hit first boundery, I got confidence. I wasn’t looking at the score, I was just batting and wasn’t thinking of my Fifty. I just wanted to play my natural game,” he said.
Deepak Hooda (55 off 41 balls) and Krunal Pandya (21 not out off 13 balls) also played crucial knocks.
