Lucknow Super Giants captain Krunal Pandya retired himself out as he was seen struggling to walk at the end of the 16th over. Pandya came into bat after LSG lost two early wickets and posted a score of 49 in 42 balls with one four and one six. Replacing Pandya, big-hitting West Indian Nicholas Pooran made his way into the middle. 

After hitting the ball towards backward point, Pandya seemingly struggled while running and was nearly run out as Suryakumar Yadav fielded the ball but missed the direct hit. Soon, LSG physios helped him walk out of the ground before he was seen discussing with the coaching staff in the dugout.

But after Pandya's departure, Marcus Stoinis took over the scoring mantle and smashed Mumbai bowlers all over the ground. At the end of 20 overs, Stoinins ended up with a massive score of 89 in 47 balls with four fours and eight sixes to post a total of 177 in 20 overs.

Reacting to this performance,  Stoinis talked about how he had to run a lot throughout the innings as the pitch was difficult to bat on. He said,  "It's hot out here, burnt a few calories. Wasn't thinking about the gloves when I was batting. Krunal (Pandya) gave me some company (before he got retired hurt). It wasn't the easiest of wickets, but if you give yourself some time, it does get easier (to bat)."

Fortunately for Lucknow, Krunal Pandya was fit for the second innings as he came up to bowl the first over of the second innings.
