Lucknow Super Giants‘ (LSG) win over Gujarat Titans in their IPL match on Sunday extended their unbeaten run while defending totals of 160-plus to 13-0.
The franchise shared the statistic via an innovative video posted on microblogging platform ‘X’.

LSG defeated the Titans by 33 runs, propelled by an outstanding performance from all-rounder Marcus Stoinis and pacer Yash Thakur on their home ground — the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium — in Lucknow.

Opting to bat first, LSG capitalized on Stoinis’s half-century to score 163 for 5, aided by his partnership of 73 runs with skipper Rahul (33).
Stoinis scored 58 off 43 balls, while Nicholas Pooran’s quickfire 32 off 22 balls added the finishing touches to the innings.
