Lucknow Super Giants is going pretty well in the IPL 2023 as it has won 5 matches out of 8 played by the team but yesterday’s victory was something else as LSG not only won the match by a big margin of 56 runs but it also made the second highest score of the IPL history.
LSG played its last match against Punjab Kings at Mohali and batted first after losing the toss. Though the skipper KL Rahul got out soon at the score of 12 runs (9 balls, 1 four 1 six), LSG batters Kyle Mayers (54 runs, 24 balls, 7 fours & 4 sixes), Ayush Badoni (43 runs, 24 balls, 3 fours & 3 sixes), Marcus Stoinis (72 runs, 40 balls, 6 fours & 5 sixes) and Nicholas Pooran (45 runs, 19 balls, 7 fours & 1 six) wreaked havoc on the PBKS bowlers and helped their team in posting a total of 257/5 on the scoreboard.
Despite the wonderful performance of his team, Gautam Gambhir had a blank and expressionless face while sitting next to the skipper KL Rahul in the dug-out and it soon become a meme material. Here are some selected reactions:

They don't seem to enjoy themselves; they are still concerned about what will happen if they perform similarly in the next game the way they did in the previous game.😂

It’s all happened because of terrific captaincy by KLR…by getting out early he has given opportunity for batters down the order to perform! In fact, he tried to get out on very first ball…if that would have happened then score would have been 280 plus!😛

don't know about KL
but Gambhi would be thinking "why aren't the batsman hitting well enough to reach 300 score?"

But their face tells kl is still thinking about his dismissal while gambhir looks like still thinking about man of the match robbery in 2011 wc.

Sometimes, I feel these 2 can be used by Sabyasachi in place of those emotionless models. 🙈

Chasing 258 was certainly a tough task and things turned ugly for PBKS very early as it lost the skipper Shikhar Dhawan at the score of 1 and the other opener Prabhsimran Singh also got dismissed soon at the score of 9. Atharva Taide (66 runs, 36 balls, 8 fours & 2 sixes) and Sikandar Raza (36 runs, 22 balls, 4 fours & 1 six) tried to give some fight but after they got dismissed, no other batter was able to make a big score and the whole PBKS team got out for 201 runs in 19.5 overs.
What is your reaction on Gautam Gambhir’s expressionless face?
