Mumbai Indians vs Lucknow Super Giants T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Mumbai Indians and Lucknow Super Giants go head to head in Match 67 of the 2024 Indian Premier League at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday evening. Mumbai have eight points from 13 games and could end the season bottom of the table. Lucknow Super Giants could still reach 14 points but, due to a poor net-run-rate, realistically can not make the play-offs. Read on as we preview this match which gets underway at 19:30 local time on May 17th.

Mumbai Indians did beat the high-flying Sunrisers Hyderabad only two games ago and there can be no doubt that they have top quality players throughout their side. They have had a disappointing tournament but they should have enough to win this clash.

Lucknow Super Giants looked well set to qualify for the end of season play-offs but have since had a disappointing run of results. They were slightly more competitive in their last game but overall confidence in the squad is likely to be low ahead of this match.

MI vs LSG Match Toss Prediction

The last eight matches in the IPL at the Wankhede Stadium have seen four won by the team fielding first and four won by the team batting first. With humidity increasing across the game, we predict that both skippers will want to field first in this match.

MI vs LSG Pitch Report

There have been 31 wickets across the last two IPL matches at this venue with quick and slow bowlers all having joy. Although the ball will be harder and will fly to the boundary quicker during the opening overs, that is also likely to be the time when we will see the most swing.

Mumbai Weather Report

It will be another warm evening in Mumbai on Friday evening with the temperature in the low thirties from start to finish. There will be more cloud cover as the game progresses.

MI Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

In spite of already being out of the tournament and playing just for pride in their last game, Mumbai Indians still fielded their strongest possible side and we expect more of the same in this match. No new injury worries have been announced in the squad.

MI Key Players

  • Tilak Varma- the 21 year old left-hander hit five fours and one six in the last game and he will be keen to contribute after making just seven runs in the last clash with Lucknow Super Giants.
  • Suryakumar Yadav- the right-handed big hitter has made one hundred and three half-centuries across IPL 2024 and is always a real danger when he comes to the crease.
  • Piyush Chawla- the spinner picked up the wickets of Venkatesh Iyer and Andre Russell against KKR and he will be a danger on this Wankhede pitch.
  • Jasprit Bumrah- the Indian international is a wicket taking threat whenever he has the ball in hand and he will be keen to end this tournament with more dismissals.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Nuwan Thushara, Shams Mulani, Shivalik Sharma, Mohammad Nabi, Kumar Kartikey

The recent approach for Mumbai Indians has been Nuwan Thushara coming in for the fielding innings with the experienced Rohit Sharma only taking part in the batting innings and we expect the same in this match.

MI Team Form

Mumbai Indians have had a very disappointing tournament and have won just two of their last eight.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Naman Dhir, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Nehal Wadhera, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Anshul Kamboj, Piyush Chawla, Jasprit Bumrah

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

In a final attempt to get a result to keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the play-offs, Lucknow Super Giants did make a couple of changes ahead of their loss against Delhi Capitals on Tuesday. There could be further changes ahead of this game with their chance of progression now so unlikely.

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul- the captain has improved his strike-rate this year and is Lucknow’s leading run scorer once again with a 41 run lead over his nearest challenger.
  • Nicholas Pooran- the left-hander produced another excellent innings against Delhi Capitals when he scored 61 runs from 27 balls including hitting ten boundaries.
  • Naveen-ul-Haq- the quick bowler has an excellent slower-ball but he will need to not overuse it against some top batters in this match.
  • Ravi Bishnoi- the spinner has had an up and down tournament this year but impressed against Delhi Capitals taking 1/26 in the last game.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Mohsin Khan, M Siddharth, Devdutt Padikkal, Prerad Mankad, Krishnappa Gowtham

We can expect to see Ayush Badoni drop out of the side for the fielding innings of this game with most pundits expecting to see Mohsin Khan coming into the XI.

LSG Team Form

Lucknow Super Giants have lost their last three fixtures and four of their last five games across the tournament.

LSG Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock (wk), KL Rahul (c), Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Arshad Khan, Yudhvir Singh, Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen-ul-Haq

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

Both teams began this campaign with genuine aspirations of finishing in the top four but neither has been consistent enough. Player for player, Lucknow do have a strong side but it is Mumbai Indians who have the top team.

🏆 MI vs LSG Prediction

With only three more group stage matches to go in the 2024 Indian Premier League after this match and both sides not finishing in the top four, we can expect an entertaining fixture. Particularly with the pitch likely to keep the bowlers interested throughout the game, we are predicting two totals of under 200. Lucknow Super Giants are finishing the tournament in very poor form and we are backing Mumbai Indians to win.
