The match saw LSG struggle in the powerplay overs, a challenge faced by many teams early in the season due to the introduction of the two-bouncer-per-over rule. Despite setbacks like Devdutt Padikkal and Rahul undergoing concussion protocols after being hit by Trent Boult, Rahul remained upbeat about the team’s prospects.

Reflecting on the defeat, Rahul emphasized the importance of the powerplay while acknowledging that no team has yet mastered it this season. He praised players like Mohsin Khan and Naveen ul-Haq for their contributions and expressed confidence in the team’s ability to bounce back and improve.

Regarding the target of 194 set by RR, Rahul believed it was achievable, indicating that the team had shown resilience despite early setbacks in their chase. He also mentioned his personal satisfaction in starting the season with a half-century after missing part of the previous season due to injury.

Vice-captain Nicholas Pooran echoed Rahul’s sentiments about the team’s bowling performance, admitting to a lack of discipline during crucial overs. However, he remained optimistic about learning from the experience and making necessary adjustments going forward.

In conclusion, while LSG faced a defeat in their opening game, Rahul and the team remain focused on learning from mistakes and strengthening their performance for upcoming matches in IPL 2024.
