This win propelled Lucknow Super Giants into fourth place in the IPL standings, replacing the five-time champions Chennai Super Kings at the spot. LSG now have five wins in eight matches and are level on points with Kolkata Knight Riders (2nd) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (3rd), both with 10 points each.

The CSK, following their second successive defeat to KL Rahul's men, dropped out of the top four and are now fifth in the standings with four wins and as many losses. Rajasthan Royals continue to lead the points tally with a brilliant seven wins out of eight, while Royal Challengers Bengaluru remain at the bottom with just two points to their name so far.
