Deepak Hooda of the Lucknow Super
Giants(LSG) expressed his regret at not completing the task for his side in the final five overs
of their match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The clash was held at the DY Patil Sports Academy in
Mumbai on Monday. After losing early wickets in the powerplay, Hooda and captain KL Rahul put
together a fine 51-run partnership to keep LSG's innings afloat.
During his 33-ball tenure in the middle, Hooda performed with a lot of responsibility and
produced some beautiful shots, scoring three sixes and as many fours.
After the first innings on Monday, Hooda expressed his thoughts to IPL broadcasters Star Sports.
The 26-year-old batter said that innings were solid, but he was saddened that he was unable to
capitalise in the final five overs. However, he is content with 170-plus.
Hooda has moved up to third place in the Orange Cap standings, just 17 runs behind Ishan Kishan

Hooda now has two fifty-plus scores in his first three outings of the season. After earning his
India cap earlier this year, the gifted batter claimed his confidence is at an all-time
He remarked that self-confidence and self-belief are both important in his opinion. Every day,
he prepares himself as if it were a fresh match. It was a respectable score, but the deliveries
towards the wicket are slipping a little low and aren't coming on nicely.
