GT vs LSG | Turning point of the match: Hooda-Badoni partnership

Hooda and Badoni shared 87 for the fifth wicket off 68 deliveries to take LSG to 158 for six and give their team a semblance of a contest.

Vastly experienced by IPL standards, Rajasthan’s Deepak Hooda, and debutant Ayush Badoni of Delhi, joined hands when Lucknow Super Giants were precariously placed at 29 for four in the fifth over against Gujarat Titans in the first clash of IPL two newest teams on Monday.

Hooda and Badoni shared 87 for the fifth wicket off 68 deliveries to take LSG to 158 for six and give their team a semblance of a contest. But for this partnership, the match would have been a one-sided contest. Their stand, the highest of the match, was not enough as GT's two fifty-plus stands, Hardik Pandya-Mathew Wade for third (57) and David Miller-Rahul Tewatia for the fifth (60) saw GT home by five wickets.

India’s top bowler Mohammed Shami and discarded pacer Varun Aaron took three wickets and one wicket, respectively, all the four scalps – KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis and Manish Pandey – being match-winners in their own right.
