Skipper KL Rahul managed to snatch defeat from jaws of victory with a baffling batting approach as defending champion Gujarat Titans beat Lucknow Super Giants by seven runs in a low-scoring IPL thriller in Lucknow on Saturday.

Chasing target of 136 on a sluggish pitch, LSG was cruising along at 105 for 1 after 14 overs with 31 needed off 36 deliveries but ended at 128 for 7 at the end of 20 overs.

Veteran Mohit Sharma (2/17 in 3 overs) required to defend only 12 off the final over and he removed rival captain Rahul (68 off 61 balls) and kept hitting the blockhole length to conceded only five runs in the end with another three wickets lost in the process.
