WATCH : Mitchell Starc’s pinpoint corker leaving Arshad Khan stunned


The home team took advantage of winning the toss, promptly removing Lucknow’s opener Quinton de Kock in the second over. The Super Giants faced another setback as Deepak Hooda fell by the fifth over.

Despite a promising partnership between KL Rahul and Ayush Badoni, Lucknow managed to reach 49/2 in the powerplay and 72/2 in 10 overs.

However, a crucial 44-run partnership between Krunal Pandya and Nicholas Pooran propelled the side to 155/5 by the 19th over. Nevertheless, the final over, bowled by Starc, saw Pooran dismissed, concluding Lucknow’s innings with a brilliant yorker.

In the last delivery of the 20th over, Starc delivered a sensational yorker, seemingly transforming into a precise jaffa. Arshad Khan, caught off guard, attempted a straight shot but misjudged the trajectory of the 142 kmph delivery.

The ball, resembling a tracer bullet, swiftly demolished all three stumps as Arshad departed for the pavilion. Twitter exploded with praise for Starc’s remarkable return to form, hailing his impeccable yorker delivery.
