Stats - Super Giants' super chase, Pooran's 15-ball half-century

The RCB vs LSG game went down to the last ball, and amid all the excitement, a lot of interesting numbers emerged

4 - Number of one-wicket wins in the IPL, including Lucknow Super Giants' victory on Monday. Kolkata Knight Riders won by one wicket chasing 184 against Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in 2015, while Mumbai Indians were on the receiving end in their first two matches of the 2018 season against Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
213 - Target successfully chased by Super Giants against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the fourth-highest successful chase in IPL history. Rajasthan Royals' 224 against Punjab in 2020 remains the highest. They also chased down 215 against Deccan Chargers in 2008. Mumbai Indians' chase of 219 against Super Kings in 2021 is the second-highest.
1 - Super Giants' 213 is the highest successful chase in a one-wicket win in T20 cricket. The previous highest was by Lahore Lions, who chased down 200 against Karachi Dolphins in 2006.
15 - Balls Nicholas Pooran needed for his fifty, the joint-third-fastest in the IPL. The record is of 14 balls, achieved by KL Rahul against Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) in 2018 and by Pat Cummins against Mumbai Indians in 2022. Yusuf Pathan against Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2014 and Sunil Narine against Royal Challengers in 2017 also scored 15-ball fifties.
148 - Runs scored by the Super Giants during the middle overs (7-16), the second-highest in an IPL innings. The highest is 155 runs by Punjab, also against Royal Challengers, in 2011. Royal Challengers also scored 148 runs in this phase during a 15-over match against Punjab in 2016.
258.33 - Super Giants' strike rate against spin in this game. They scored 62 runs off 24 balls from Karn Sharma and Shahbaz Ahmed with seven sixes, while Royal Challengers scored 91 off 60 balls against Super Giants' spinners. Royal Challengers struck at 181.66 against pacers, while Super Giants scored at 140.62.
5 - Number of successful 200-plus chases over the years against Royal Challengers, the joint-most against any team in T20 cricket, alongside South Africa. Super Giants' 213-run chase is now the highest against Royal Challengers, who have conceded 24 200-plus totals, a T20 record surpassing Somerset (23).
