Lucknow Super Giants had a forgettable outing against Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2023 Eliminator in Chennai on Wednesday. Chasing a 183-run target, LSG fell short by 81 runs to be knocked out of the race for a final berth. Marcus Stoinis was LSG’s best batter with a score of 40. Till the time he was at the crease, it looked like LSG were in with a chance despite wickets falling at the other end. However, his innings was cut short in the 12th over of the chase after a bizarre run out. Facing MI’s Cameron Green, Stoinis and fellow batter Deepak Hooda ran for a couple of runs on the fifth delivery. There was a mix-up between the two and they even collided mid-pitch.
That collision helped Tim David throw the ball at Stoinis’ end as Ishan Kishan affected a smart run out.
