Lucknow Super Giants suffered their third loss in IPL 2022 on Tuesday (April 19) as they failed to chase down 182 against Royal Challengers Bangalore. One of the turning points of the game was Marcus Stoinis’ dismissal in the penultimate over of LSG innings. The Aussie all-rounder was going well in the middle and had played some delightful shots all over the park.

Just when he was threatening to take the game away from RCB, Stoinis’ fellow countryman Josh Hazlewood dismissed him for a 15-ball 24. Stoinis was absolutely livid as he walked off the field in disappointment. It must be noted that Hazlewood got away with a wide call a delivery before rattling Stoinis’ stumps.

The Aussie pacer had bowled a good-length delivery way outside the tramline. Surprisingly, however, the umpire didn’t award LSG an extra run, judging the ball was within Stoinis’ reach as he had shuffled a bit. It was a crucial call as that delivery was a dot. While Stoinis was upset with the decision, he conveyed his opinion to the umpire with a smile.

Marcus Stonis’ wicket was the turning point in the game

With the required run rate going up, Stoinis, on the next ball, tried to smash Hazlewood behind the wickets as he shuffled across to do the same. However, he completely missed the ball and his stumps were rattled after the ball deflected off his pad. On this occasion, the Aussie dasher couldn’t keep his calm and his anger was evident.

He screamed in frustration the moment he got out and he even seemed like throwing his bat in anger. Fortunately, that didn’t happen. It was smooth sailing for RCB after that as they restricted the KL Rahul-led side to 163/8.

Meanwhile, skipper Faf du Plessis was the chief architect of RCB’s triumph as he scored a 64-ball 96, helping his side post a daunting total despite a top-order collapse. Hazlewood was the stand-out performer with the ball, as he scalped a four-fer.
