Marcus Stoinis smashed an unbeaten 124 off just 63 balls to script Lucknow Super Giants' (LSG) stunning six-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in IPL 2024 on Tuesday night. The Australian all-rounder smashed 19 off Muztafizur Rahman's first three balls of the final over, which also included a no-ball, as LSG pulled off the highest chase at Chepuk in IPL history.

Stoinis had the distinction of notching up the highest score in a successful IPL chase. The victory also helped LSG do the double over CSK this season.

However, Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran (34 off 15 balls) put on 70 for the fourth wicket to turn the tide in LSG's favour. Stoinis took them home in the company of Deepak Hooda (17 not out off 6 balls).
