Returning after three matches, Shikhar Dhawan won the toss and decided to bowl, which proved to be wrong. Except for Rahul Chahar, all six of their bowlers conceded runs at an average of more than ten runs per over. In-form Arshdeep Singh gave away 54 runs in four overs. Kagiso Rabada conceded 52 runs in four overs though he got two wickets. This is the second highest score in the history of IPL. The record for the highest score is in the name of Royal Challengers Bangalore who scored 263 runs in 2013 with the help of Chris Gayle’s 175 runs.
Only Lucknow captain KL Rahul could not walk on the batsmen’s favorite pitch and was dismissed after scoring 12 runs in nine balls. He also got a life on the first ball of the match off Gurnoor Brar but he could not take advantage of it. Myers hit Arshdeep for four fours in the very first over. He hit seven fours and four sixes in his innings. After the dismissal of Myers, Stoinis and Badoni added 89 runs in 47 balls. Stoinis hit five sixes and six fours in his innings. Lucknow scored 73 runs in the last six overs. Stoinis would have been out in the 13th over but Liam Livingstone touched the boundary in an attempt to take a catch at long-on.
