It was a run-fest in the first innings of the game between Lucknow Super Giants and Punjab Kings on Friday. The visitors scored 257-5 in 20 overs. They fell just 6 runs from the record for the highest total in the history of IPL. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as LSG score the second highest Score in the history of IPL.

LSG scores the second highest Score in the history of IPL

Mohali has always been known to be a good pitch for the batters. However, the most suitable conditions for the batters came up on Friday’s game. It did not take long for LSG to get going in their innings. In the powerplay, it was all about Kyle Mayers, who delivered a total of 11 boundaries. He got out for 54 runs in just 24 balls.

Then, it was the turn of youngster Ayush Badoni to show his skills. He made 43 runs from 24 balls. With this knock, he has somewhat made the No.3 spot his own for the next few games at least. Then, it was the likes of Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran who turned the game for LSG. In fact, with their stay, RCB’s record of 263 was in danger. While Stoinis made 72 runs in 40 balls, Pooran scored 45 runs in just 19 deliveries. In the last two overs, Arshdeep Singh and Sam Curran were good and hence, LSG could not set the record total. Nevertheless, it was a top effort and will be remembered for long.


Twitter reacts to the terrific feat

It is not often that a team scores in excess of 250 in the IPL. In fact, it had happened only once in the past and it happened again on Friday at Mohali. Since it is a rare event, there were many reactions on Twitter. We take a look at some of them below:
