In the match between Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Supergiants, the latter had opted to bat first and set a competitive target o 178/6 in 20 overs on Sunday, May 15 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
LSG responded with openers Quinton de Kock losing his wicket to Trent Boult in the 3rd over. Trent Boult delivered a short ball outside off at 134.4 kph. The ball landed and went away as de Kock rocked back to hit is through the line.
De Kock didn’t bother to keep it down and James Neesham at point grabbed a very low catch. He claimed it and de Kock started walking back. But the two umpires discussed and wanted it to go upstairs and the third umpire’s decision then confirmed the dismissal.

Meanwhile, even if RR’s Jos Buttler had to walk back for 2, other opener Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 41 off 29 with 6 fours and a six before he was caught and bowled by Ayush Badoni. Sanju Samson and Devdutt Padikkal played knocks of 32 and 39 respectively.
When Jimmy Neesham walked out to bat, with 2 fours, he had scored 14 off 12 balls. But in the 18th over, Ravi Bishnoi bowled a full ball and Ravichandran Ashwin drove it straight to extra cover and Jimmy Neesham came out of the crease in search of a run.
Ashwin but stood outside the crease watching KL Rahul throw the ball to the bowler. But he tried to cross Neesham and sacrificed himself as Bishnoi collected the ball and broke the stumps. The third umpire gave the review which showed that the batter didn’t cross and so Neesham had to depart.
