Lucknow Super Giants batters went as fast as possible into the last 10 overs as they put up the second-highest score in Indian Premier League history with 257/5 against Punjab Kings. Marcus Stoinis scored his highest run in the league with 72 and he was supported by Kyle Mayers (54), Ayush Badoni (43), and Nicholas Pooran (45).

Kyle Mayers smashed a half-century in just 20 balls as he got Lucknow off to a blistering start and Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni and Nicholas Pooran continued their finishing work. Mayers was dismissed by Kagiso Rabada on 54 off 24 balls but the riot just began since then. Ayus Badoni and Marcus Stoinis put up a 50-run partnership that came up in just 26 balls.

Badoni eventually fell on 43 off 24 but then Nicholas Pooran came in and smashed three fours off the first three balls he faced. LSG raced past 200 in just 16 overs and it looked for a while that they might be able to surpass the highest-ever score by a team in the IPL. That effort, however, was dented somewhere when Marcus Stoinis fell on 72 off 40. Nicholas Pooran also fell in the last over for 45 off 19 and in the end, LSG reached a score of 257/5 in 20 overs.
