Lucknow Super Giants suffered a defeat against Rajasthan Royals in the last game. Having posted 196-5, the team failed to defend the target. LSG are fifth on the points table, with five wins and four defeats. They need to win three games out of their remaining five matches to qualify for the playoffs.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians’ playoff chances hang by a thread. They lost to Delhi Capitals in the last game. MI have been very ordinary this season and won just three games out of the nine matches played. However, MI are just not out of the playoff race. If MI can win all their remaining five games, they will qualify for the playoffs, however, it won’t be an easy task given how the team has fared so far.

The pitch at the Ekana Stadium is slow, however, it gets better in the second innings as the ball skids from the surface if there is some dew around. Spinners are going to play a big role and wickets with new ball will be key. A score of around 200 should be par.

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

The only change we see in the Lucknow Super Giants playing XI is Mayak Yadav replacing Mohsin Khan. Mayank has returned to bowling and he has got enough rest as well. Since LSG face a situation where they can’t afford to lose a game, Mayank Yadav should be drafted back in the playing XI.

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul – KL Rahul scored his third fifth of IPL 2024 as he scored 76 against Rajasthan Royals. He had scored 82 in the previous game against CSK at the same venue as well. Overall, he has scored 378 runs this season and will be key for LSG against Mumbai Indians.
  • Marcus Stoinis – Marcus Stoinis scored a brilliant 124 against CSK but was out for a duck against Royals. Stoinis is a game changer for LSG and if he is at the crease, LSG will chase down any score or post a match winning total. We are expecting another good show by Stoinis as he seems to be enjoying the promotion in the batting order and MI’s bowling hasn’t been that great this season. Stoinis also picked a wicket against RR and thus his all-round abilities will be vital for LSG.
  • Nicholas Pooran – Pooran has been outstanding for LSG this season. He has scored 291 runs for the team. Coming late in the innings, he has played multiple match winning innings. He has also hit 22 sixes during his stay at the crease.
  • Krunal Pandya – Pandya gave just 24 runs in the previous game where Royals chased 197. All other bowlers were taken to the cleaners. He is a very efficient bowler and conditions are suited to him. Also, he is a handy batter down the order.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

M Siddharth, Deepak Hooda/ Amit Mishra, K Gowtham, Yudhvir Singh, Arshin Kulkarnie 

Deepak Hooda could be used as an impact player if LSG are chasing a score and Amit Mishra can be used as an impact player if LSG are defending.

LSG Team Form

LSG have blown hot and cold so far. They have played nine matches, winning five and losing four. The team could have won a couple more games had they capitalized on crunch moments.

LSG Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul (c & wk), Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan/Mayank Yadav, Matt Henry, Yash Thakur, Deepak Hooda/Amit Mishra

MI Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Mumbai Indians have tried many combinations but it has not paid off. The team would like to bolster their spin attack in Lucknow thus Mohammad Nabi is likely to retain his place which was under a threat otherwise. Luke Wood is set to be left out for Gerald Coetzee, who missed the last game.

MI Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma – Rohit Sharma is the only MI batter who has scored a century this season but he has been far from his best.  He has scored 311 at a strike rate of 160 but hasn’t look peak Rohit Sharma that we have been seen in the past. In a must win game, Rohit Sharma should return for form for MI.
  • Suryakumar Yadav –  Suryakumar Yadav has blown hot and cold for MI. He has scored a couple of fifties but has also failed in three games. He is one player on which MI rely a lot thus Surya needs to come good against LSG if MI have to return to winning ways.
  • Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah has bowled his heart out for MI this season. With 14 wickets, he is currently the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. MI have conceded a few 200 and 250+ scores this season but still Bumrah’s economy has been less than 7 which shows the calibre of the pacer.
  • Gerald Coetzee – Coetzee missed the last game due to a stomach bug and should return to the team. The pacer might leak a few runs but is a wicket-taker. He has taken 12 wickets this season for MI.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Namam Dhir, Shams Mulani, Dawald Brevis, Kumar Kartikeya/Nehal Wadhera

MI might want to try spinner Kumar Kartikeya in Lucknow thus he could be used as an impact if MI are batting first while in a chase, Nehal Wadhera can be used.

MI Team Form

MI have been very ordinary this season. They have played nine games, winning just three. They face a must win situation as a defeat will mean the team won’t be able to qualify for playoffs on their own.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Mohammad Nabi, Piyush Chawla, Geralad Coetzee, Jasprit Bumrah, Nuwan Thushara, Nehal Wadhera/Kumar Kartikeya

LSG vs MI Betting Odds

LSG are being deemed as favourites for the upcoming clash. The team has a great record at home and won three out of the five games in Lucknow this year.

Who will win Lucknow Super Giants vs Mumbai Indians T20 Match?

We suggest backing LSG to win. MI have not looked a composed team this year. The batters have not scored runs while barring Bumrah, the bowling has been ordinary. LSG on the other hand look top notch, especially after KL Rahul and Marcus Stoinis’ return to form.

🏆 LSG vs MI Prediction

LSG are favourites to win. LSG are clearly a better team on paper. MI have a fiery batting line-up but players have been out of form. Also, barring Bumrah, they don’t seem to have much quality in bowling. LSG, on the other hand, have been great with the bat while the conditions will suit LSG bowlers more due to the presence of multiple good spinners. For us, LSG are favourites.
