The world will celebrate Mother’s Day on 8th May, and one of the ten IPL franchises, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) had come up with a super-duper idea to celebrate the occasion. As a great gesture to their mothers, the players were supposed to dress up with the jerseys with their respective mothers’ names on the back.
In their latest encounter versus the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), the players were expected to wear the jerseys featuring their mothers’ names on them. Earlier, the franchise took it to their Twitter handle and posted a special video penning out that,
“This one’s for you, Maa.” Now THAT’s how you prepare for Mother’s Day – the #SuperGiant way!”LSG Twitter
However, the players were spotted in the regular jerseys, and no special arrangements were seen on account of Mother’s Day. The franchise launched sky-blue jerseys but for Mother’s Day, the colours were changed to grey, featuring mothers’ names and jersey numbers in orange colour, as shown in the video. LSG featured vs KKR today, on 7th May at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, but in the old jerseys.
The match turned out to be a one-sided battle as the men in grey shattered the remaining hopes of Shreyas Iyer’s men. The lads in appealing shirts set up a target of 177 runs needed from 120 balls, however, the KKR batters collapsed way earlier than expected, all going to the pavilion on 101, hardly surpassing triple-digit.
So far, things have been going in LSG’s favour since they have not lost more than three games out of 11 encountered. Consequently, KL Rahul and co are placed at the top of the ten-team IPL 2022 points table with 16 points. Gujarat Titans, another newly induced franchise, is placed just below LSG, with the same number of matches played, same wins and losses, but falling slightly low on NRR. It won’t be wrong to say that two new IPL franchises are in a tough competition with them, setting all others apart.
