It was a score Punjab Kings would have desired following a spectacular bowling effort.
However, none of the Punjab batters managed to remain long at the crease to supply some hope as wickets kept falling at regular intervals.
Mohsin Khan grabbed 3 whilst Chameera and Krunal fetched 2 to restrain Punjab to just 133 for 8.
Before, at 98/1 in the 13th over with two well-set batters in Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda meant a big totals waited for the Lucknow Super Giants.
But some trained bowling from Kagiso Rabada and Rahul Chahar saw Punjab restrain Lucknow to 153 for 8 in 20 overs.
Sandeep Sharma set De Kock’s removal in the 13th over ahead of lazy run-out removal saw Hooda sent off in the very next over.
Rabada’s blast and Chahar’s twin strikes further triggered a slump as LSG in the end went eight down.
