LSG, batting first, put 257/5 on the board, the second-highest total in the history of the IPL. The KL Rahul-led side fell short of just six runs to equal RCB’s record 263 runs, which they scored against Pune Warriors in 2013.
Besides scripting a plethora of batting records, Lucknow also set a bizarre bowling feat. Defending 258, LSG equalled RCB’s record of using most bowlers in an inning.
In the game against Punjab, KL Rahul used nine bowlers, equalling RCB‘s tally, who did the same in the 2016 edition.
Only skipper KL Rahul and keeper Nicholas Pooran were the two players who did not bowl for LSG against Punjab.
Notably, only Ravi Bishnoi, Yash Thakur and Naveen-ul-Haq bowled their full quota of overs. Meanwhile, Kyle Mayers bowled a single over before Amit Mishra replaced him as an impact sub. Batter Ayush Badoni also bowled a solitary ball as Marcus Stoinis could not complete his 2nd over because of an injury.
With the win, LSG moved 2nd on the table behind Rajasthan Royals. Meanwhile, Punjab Kings are sixth on the table.
