Two fours and a wicket, that is how Trent Boult starts vs Quinton de Kock. LSG is 8/1 in .3 overs.

Rahul says

The wicket is good, there’s not much dew in Lucknow and the wicket will play well for the entire 40 overs. We’ll need to play some good cricket. It’s nice to get past 200, every team would like to do so, but the dimensions of this ground favours the bowlers a bit more and we’ve enjoyed it. No changes for us. Every player goes through a bit of time like that when you can’t get runs ( asked about Padikkal’s form). He looks good in the nets and he’ll have to stay positive, you saw last night when Jonny came back after getting dropped and then getting a hundred.
