The home side then got a brilliant start with the ball too. At one stage LSG were struggling at 32-3.

The match went right down the wire as LSG needed one run in the final delivery. The visitors also had only one wicket in their hand. At this stage, RCB bowler Harshal Patel tried to run out LSG's non-striker batter Ravi Bishnoi. Harshal however failed to do so. RCB had one more chance to enforce super over but their keeper Dinesh Karthik missed a run-out chance as LSG ran away with a very memorable victory.

Following this result, LSG's mentor Gautam Gambhir was pumped up. Gambhir shook hands with RCB players and then did the 'finger on lips' celebration to silence the home crowd. A video of this moment has already gone viral on the internet.

Since his playing days, Gambhir has always been in the thick of things. His aggressiveness on the field is what led Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL titles. Gambhir also did similar things while playing for the national team and often backed it up with big performances. So this gesture from the LSG mentor was not something new. After Babar Azam, Simon Doull Criticises Virat Kohli for Being 'Concerned About a Milestone' During RCB vs LSG IPL 2023 Match.
