Led by solid half-centuries from captain Sanju Samson and Dhruv Jurel, RR chased down a challenging target set by Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) with ease, winning the match by seven wickets.

The bowlers, spearheaded by Sandeep Sharma, staged an impressive comeback after a formidable partnership between KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda, restricting LSG to 196/5. Sandeep Sharma’s figures of 2/31 were instrumental in curbing the run flow and putting brakes on LSG’s innings.
