Player of the Match: Marcus Stoinis (124* off 63)

The last time Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) faced off Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Lucknow last week, KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock put up a record opening partnership. Their 134-run stand proved to be the difference as LSG emerged victorious. Today, it’s Marcus Stoinis who stuns CSK with the brilliant ton. Gaikwad’s maiden century as Chennai skipper went in vain as Stoinis slammed his first-ever IPL century to seal a six-wicket win for the Super Giants.

LSG won the toss and opted to bowl first. CSK started on the back foot after losing Ajinkya Rahane in the very first over of their innings to a brilliant delivery from Matt Henry. However, CSK captain Ruturaj Gaikwad led from the front, maturely controlling Chennai's innings. He smashed a sensational century and stood till the end. Supporting the skipper from the other end, Shivam Dube played an excellent quickfire knock. Their 104-run partnership guided the Super Kings to put on a huge target of 211 despite early setbacks.

In the second innings, LSG faced an early blow in the run chase as Quinton de Kock got dismissed for a duck by Deepak Chahar. Marcus Stoinis stepped in at No. 3, completely changing the game's fate. He registered his first IPL century, leading the Lucknow Super Giants to a majestic victory. The CSK bowlers looked clueless while bowling to him. Lucknow became the first team to chase 211 at the Chepauk.
