Lucknow Super Giants defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in a last-ball thriller with the help of brilliant knocks from Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran. Speaking about this game, LSG winning the toss invited RCB to bat first, and RCB posted a mammoth total of 212/2 as their top three batters Kohli, Faf du Plessis, and Maxwell scored scintillating fifties and fired all around the park with innovative shots from a bat.
LSG started their run-chase very poorly as they were struggling at 23/3 after the first four overs, later a quick-fire knock from Marcus Stoinis and a 15-ball fifty from Nicholas Pooran changed the complexion of the game in favor of LSG to chase down this humongous total in 20 overs. Harshal Patel bowled the final over of the match brilliantly as he almost ended up defending five runs in the last over, but unfortunately, the luck wasn't on their side as they ended up fumbling a run-out chance in the final ball of the game.
