RCB fans were relieved that their record was safe after Lucknow Super Giants scored 257/5, the second-highest total in IPL history

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fans were happy that their record for the highest total in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was safe after a display of brutal hitting from Kyle Mayers and Marcus Stoinis fired Lucknow Super Giants to 257/5, the second highest total in IPL history.

Mayers (54 off 24) went on the rampage in the Powerplay before Stoinis (72 off 40) effortlessly collected boundaries at will to help his team set a massive target against Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Friday. The other important contributions came from Ayush Badoni (43 off 24) and Nicholas Pooran (45 off 19).

LSG skipper K L Rahul (12 off 9) was the only batter, who could not make use of ideal batting conditions. He was dropped on the first ball of the match off debutant Gurnoor Brar but could not make it count.

Mayers looked in menacing tough from the get go as he smashed Arshdeep for four boundaries in his opening over. He started with a gorgeous drive through point before using his long levers to target the long on and deep mid-wicket region, collecting seven fours and four sixes in total.

Such was his confidence and he took a couple of strides forward to dispatch Rabada just over his head.

After Mayers fell inside the Powerplay, Stoinis and Badoni shared an 89-run stand off only 47 balls to maintain the momentum created by Mayers.
