Matthew Hayden lashes out at LSG for poor show against SRH

Matthew Hayden lashes out at LSG for poor show against SRH. Hayden criticized the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) for their poor performance against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Australian cricketing icon Matthew Hayden slammed the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) for their poor performance against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad.

The former Australian opener didn’t mince words as he ripped at LSG’s lack of will with the bat, which ultimately led to a 10-wicket loss to SRH. LSG’s only two batters that had a great day with the bat were Ayush Badoni (55 off 30) and Nicholas Pooran (48 off 26).

SRH finished off LSG’s modest total of 165/4 in 9.4 overs without losing a wicket. The SRH openers, Travis Head (89* off 30) and Abhishek Sharma (75* off 28), were in top form, scoring their second-fastest fifties of the season to propel their team to a commanding victory.

Your intention should be to go at 10s and over: Matthew Hayden

Hayden, who was on commentary duties for the game, was noticeably agitated by LSG’s strategy. Particularly after they won the toss and chose to bat first. Despite losing only four wickets, LSG’s hitters were unable to capitalize on the favorable batting conditions, scoring at a moderate clip throughout their innings.

“I need to call them out. This is not a wicket that yields 5 runs each over. Someone needed to show purpose. They executed one of the slowest power plays. “That got the innings nowhere,” Hayden noted in a commentary.

The Australian legend stressed that against a formidable batting line-up like SRH’s. LSG’s score was significantly lower, and their poor performance with the bat ultimately cost them the match.

“When the opponent side has Travis Head and Heinrich Klaasen, your goal should be to go at 10s and higher. Hayden emphasized that 160-170 will never be enough.

SRH is presently ranked third in the points standings, having won seven of its 12 games. Meanwhile, LSG is ranked sixth, with six victories and six losses in the IPL 2024.
