Lucknow Super Giants batters Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran managed to hit Sunrisers Hyderabad spinner Abhishek Sharma for 31 runs in the 17th over. With the game incredibly poised, at the start of the 17th,  Sharma went for 12 runs on the first two balls with two massive sixes over straight over the bowler. 

In the middle of these two sixes, Abhishek Sharma also gave away a wide. But this big-hitting form was short-lived for  Stoinis as he was dismissed off a top catch by   Abdul Samad. But with  Nicholas Pooran, the batting carnage continued as he smashed Sharma for three consecutive sixes to take the over tally to 31 runs.

After this massive over,  Pooran continued scoring for LSG and finished the game at a score of 44 in 13 balls with three fours and four sixes. This incredible knock  carried the Lucknow team to a crucial seven-wicket win.  Reacting to his stunning cameo and LSG's win, Pooran said,  "We spoke about adapting, we knew we could target that one over from spin, it was right up to my match-up and thankfully it came off well (on the 31-run over from Abhishek), I did enjoy my batting. 

"It's important to target that 6th bowler, it's a batter's game, no risk, no reward, and you have to work on the match-ups. I've played enough international cricket to know how to deal with situations, I expected the bowlers to bowl yorkers and slower balls and was ready for it. Even in T20I cricket, I'd like to bat longer."
