PBKS vs LSG

Four batters from Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) fired on all cylinders in a match against Punjab Kings (PBKS), the result of which saw the KL Rahul-led side rack up the second-highest total in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Kyle Mayers, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, and Nicholas Pooran went all guns blazing, helping LSG put on 257/5 on Friday (April 28) at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali.

Now, a proper collapse or a sluggish innings is expected from PBKS, for they will have to display extraordinary batting, like the LSG batters, to chase down the target. They did not expect their bowlers to concede so many runs after winning the toss and choosing to bowl first. Two of the bowlers even conceded runs above 50.

Kyle Mayers was to be given the credit to give a powerful start to the innings, whereas KL Rahul again displayed a lackluster show. But LSG after Rahul’s dismissal accelerated and kept accelerating because when one batter got out, another entered and turned into a beast.
