Aakash Chopra has pointed out that Trent Boult’s early strikes didn’t allow the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) to dictate terms to the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022. Boult dismissed KL Rahul and Krishnappa Gowtham to set the tome for his team.
While reflecting on the Lucknow Super Giants’ run chase, Aakash said Boult was unstoppable.
“You needed a good start, but Trent Boult gave 440 Volt shocks. KL Rahul was dismissed off the first ball.
The cricketer-turned-commentator added that Gowtham and Jason Holder losing their wickets was a further setback to the LSG.
“After that, Krishnappa Gowtham and Jason Holder were dismissed, which stopped Lucknow from going after the bowlers.”
Aakash Chopra was not impressed by the Lucknow Super Giants’ decision to promote Gowtham and Holder ahead of Marcus Stoinis.
“They made a mistake by not holding back Marcus Stoinis in the batting order,”
