Hooda-Stoinis collided on the pitch while taking runs, had to wash his hands with the wicket, Lucknow’s defeat was confirmed from here
Actually, the 12th over of Lucknow Super Giants’ innings was being bowled by Cameron Green for Mumbai Indians. Marcus Stoinis was on strike on the fifth ball of Green’s over. Stoinis played a shot towards deep mid-wicket with a light hand and tried to run for two runs, then Stoinis completed the first run by running fast. But when he was running back for the second run, he collided with his teammate while running, due to which he was run out.
Tim David played a brilliant throw at the wicketkeeper’s end from deep mid-wicket and Ishaan Kishan made no mistake in getting hold of the ball and hitting it on the stumps. In such a situation, Stoinis got out after scoring 40 runs in 27 balls with the help of 5 fours and 1 six. Had Stoinis stayed on the pitch for a little longer, he might have taken the match closer.

Apart from Stoinis, no other batsman was able to score runs. In such a situation, the team got all out on a score of 101 runs and lost the match by 81 runs.
