Left-arm pacer Mohsin Khan on dedicated his performance to his ailing father, who was discharged from the hospital after spending 10 days in the ICU. Mohsin Khan became the prime reason behind Lucknow Super Giants’ thrilling five-run win over Mumbai Indians during the 63rd match of the IPL 2023. The 24-year-old from Uttar Pradesh had a sensational season last year but he missed the whole of the domestic season and most part of the IPL this year due to a left shoulder injury.

Playing only his second match in the 2023 IPL, Khan defended 11 runs off the final over against the destructive Tim David as Lucknow Super Giants inched closer to the IPL playoffs with a five-run win over Mumbai Indians.

Mohsin Khan’s statement in the Post-Match Presentation

“It’s been a tough time as I sustained an injury, playing after a year. My father got discharged from the ICU yesterday and he was in the hospital for the last 10 days and I did it for him, he would have been watching,” Mohsin said at the presentation.

“I’m grateful to the team and the support staff, Gautam (Gambhir) sir, Vijay (Dahiya) sir for playing me this game even though I did not do well in the last game. The plan was to execute what I did in practice. Even Krunal was talking to me and I told him the same.

“The run-up is the same, did not change it in the last over. I was trying to calm myself down, not look at the scoreboard and bowl the 6 balls well. Since the wicket was gripping, I tried the slower ball, but I bowled two of those and then changed to the yorker and it was reversing as well.”

Marcus Stoinis’ (89 off 47 balls) inning was the key factor for this match as LSG started their inning poorly after losing the toss. Lucknow lost their two top-order batters inside the powerplay and then another one just after the end of the powerplay. Mumbai leaked 54 runs in the last three overs which helped LSG to put up a good total on a pitch like that.

IPL 2023: Rohit Sharma’s Statement in the Post-Match Presentation

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma thinks his team couldn’t win the little moments and lost its way in the second half of the chase. “We didn’t play well enough to win the game. There were little moments in the game that we didn’t win, unfortunately.

“We assessed the pitch really well and it was a good pitch to bat on and that score was definitely chaseable and we lost our way in the second half of the innings. We gave too many runs at the back end and the last three overs went for a few. But the way we started with the bat we were in a good position to chase, but like I said we lost our way in the second half.
