Kyle Mayers has been sensational for Lucknow Super Giants in the Indian Premier League 2023. The Lucknow-based franchise had to keep Quinton de Kock out of the Playing XI to accommodate the West Indies player in the squad.

In the game between Gujarat Titans and LSG at the Narendra Modi Stadium, he played a fine innings of 48 off 32 balls, laced with 7 four and 2 sixes.

Mayers became the highest run-scorer in the powerplay overs in the 16th season.
