Mumbai: Lucknow Super Giants rode on blazing half-centuries by Evin Lewis (55 off 23 deliveries) and Quinton de Kock (61 off 45) to beat Chennai Super Kings by six wickets and register their first victory in the IPL 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium, here on Thursday.

Lucknow Super Giants, who won the toss and elected to field hoping to avoid bowling in the dew, romped home to victory thanks to superb innings from Lewis and de Kock, and a 26-ball 40 by skipper KL Rahul. Lewis struck the fastest half-century of IPL 2022, off just 23 deliveries.

Earlier, opener Robin Uthappa blasted a 25-ball 50 while local lad Shivam Dube struck a 30-ball 49 to prop up CSK to 210/7.

Uthappa found an able ally in English all-rounder Moeen Ali (35), who was playing his first match of this IPL edition after reaching India late due to visa issues. They added 50 runs for the second wicket in quick time as CSK crossed 50 in fifth over and were 73/1 at the end of the powerplay.

Dube capitalised on the platform provided by Uthappa, blasted a couple of huge sixes off the pacers as CSK went from strength to strength. He added 50 runs for the fourth wicket with Ambati Rayudu (27) runs and with skipper Ravindra Jadeja (17) and his predecessor MS Dhoni landing a couple of lusty blows late in the innings, CSK managed to cross the 200-run mark.

Young spinner Ravi Bishnoi was the best of the Lucknow Super Giants bowlers as he claimed 2/24 off his four overs.

Brief scores: Chennai Super Kings 210/7 in 20 overs (Robin Uthappa 50, Moeen Ali 35, Shivam Dube 49; Bishnoi 2/24, Andrew Tye 2/41, Avesh Khan 2/38) lost to Lucknow Super Giants 211/4 in 19.3 overs (KL Rahul 40, Quinton de Kock 61, Evin Lewis 55 not out; Dwaine Pretorius 2/31) by six wickets.
