When Lucknow Super Giants were given the opportunity to bat, Mayers (54 off 24) and Stoinis (72 off 40) led them to 257 for 5 against Punjab Kings. In IPL history, this was the second-highest total. When RCB defeated Pune Warriors India in 2013, they scored 263/5 in 20 overs, which holds the record for the highest IPL total.
It was not only the highest total of the season but also the second-highest total in IPL history.

Sunrisers Hyderabad will try to turn the tables against Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2023.

In a high-scoring match at PCA Stadium in Mohali on Friday, Marcus Stoinis and Kyle Mayers each struck punishing fiftys, and medium bowler Yash Thakur got four wickets. Lucknow Super Giants defeated Punjab Kings by 56 runs. LSG had won five of the previous eight games, while Punjab Kings had lost four of those contests.

Despite scoring at a respectable rate to reach 201 in 19.5 overs, Punjab was still trailing the game despite needing almost 13 runs per over to mount an unlikely recovery.

Liam Livingstone (36 off 22) and Sikandar Raza (23 off 14) were unable to stay long enough to exert pressure on the opposition, while Atharava Taide batted admirably for 66 off 36 balls, his first fifty plus score in IPL history. Shikhar Dhawan, the captain, only played two balls after returning. The most effective bowler was the young pacer Yash Thakur, who finished with 4/37 in 4 overs.
Punjab was scoring at more than 10 runs per over when they reached 152 for 4 in 15 overs, but even Livingstone and Sam Curran were unable to complete the task of adding 106 runs in the final 30 balls (21 off 11).

Before Stoinis 40) effortlessly collected boundaries at will, Mayers went on the rampage in the Powerplay to help his team set a significant goal. Nicholas Pooran (43 off 24) and Ayush Badoni (43 off 24) made other significant contributions (45 off 19).
After three games, Dhawan was back in charge of Punjab, so he decided to field, but his bowlers were all over the place on a belter of a track.

All six of the other bowlers, with the exception of Rahul Chahar, allowed more than 10 runs per over. Arshdeep Singh, who is often thrifty, let up 54 runs in four overs, and Kagiso Rabada gave up 52 runs in four overs despite taking two wickets.

The total was also the highest of the year and fell six runs short of 263, which was set by RCB in 2013 when Chris Gayle played his historic 175-run performance to set an IPL record.
The only batsman who was unable to take advantage of the favourable batting circumstances was LSG captain K L Rahul (12 off 9). He was dropped by newcomer Gurnoor Brar on the first pitch of the game, but he was unable to capitalise.
As soon as he hit four boundaries off of Arshdeep in his first over, Mayers appeared scary and tough. He got things going with a stunning drive past point and then used his long levers to hit the long on and deep mid-wicket areas, accumulating seven fours and four sixes in total.

Such was his self-assurance that he moved a few steps forward to take out Rabada directly over his head.
Following Mayers' exit from the Powerplay, Stoinis and Badoni combined for an 89-run stand off just 47 balls to continue the momentum that Mayers had started.
In his ferocious knock, which featured five sixes and a half-dozen boundaries, Stoinis played some breath-taking strokes.
In the 13th over, Stoinis may have been out but Liam Livingstone touched the boundary while attempting to take a legal catch at long on.

Pooran started his inning by hitting Livingstone for three consecutive off drives. 73 runs were scored by LSG off the final 30 balls.
