During the post-match presentation, Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul lauded the young leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi, who bagged 2 wickets in the match by giving away just 24 runs. He asserted:

 “Bishnoi has a big heart, he’s a fighter for a little guy, shows the character he has to bounce back [from the last game] with a wet ball. Really happy for him, he wants to grow, wants to learn, and good to see that.”

KL Rahul also lavished praise on young Ayush Badoni, who has been in excellent form in his first two Indian Premier League 2022 games. LSG captain said:

And Badoni, I’d seen a few videos, when you only get to see the good shots, but the way he’s been batting is phenomenal. Strong, 360-degree player, a great find for India and an asset for white-ball cricket.”

KL Rahul signed off by saying that Quinton de Kock and Evin Lewis are also in great form and seeing so many players in form puts a smile on his face. He elaborated:

In these conditions you give yourself an over or two, capitalise on the powerplay, and a right-left [partnership] has advantages. Quinny in good form, batted beautifully. Lewis has worked hard on his batting, his timing has got better. Seeing so many players in form puts a smile on a captain’s face.”
