Gautam Gambhir, the mentor of Lucknow Super Giants, was furious when the team lost the match by 62 runs against the Gujarat Titans and addressed the players in the dressing room by giving a solid speech. Gambhir motivated the group and stated that one team might lose, and the other may win. This is what cricket is all about, but the team must bounce back to remain in the tournament as there is no place for a weak team in any sport. His speech worked, and the team registered a victory in the game.
