Lucknow Super Giants will play against Mumbai Indians in the match 63 of the Indian Premier League 2023 at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. In their previous outing, LSG defeated SRH in the final over in Hyderabad. Meanwhile, MI thumped the long-standing league leaders GT by 27 runs at home. Both Lucknow and Mumbai have the IPL playoffs destiny in their own hands currently, but they will have to win their upcoming encounter at the Ekana Cricket Stadium to stay in contention.
The pitches during the first-ever season of the IPL at the Ekana Cricket Stadium have been quite favourable to the bowlers, which has been a rarity in the 2023 edition of the tournament. The average first innings score at this venue is 143, which might be the first innings total when LSG and MI play each other on May 16.
Lucknow Super Giants
Lucknow Super Giants have been bolstered immensely with the return of Quinton de Kock to the setup. The runs at the top of the order from his fellow opener Kyle Mayers, alongside Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran, has ensured that LSG are putting up big totals on the board more often than not. In the bowling department, the young fast bowlers Yudhvir Singh and Yash Thakur have taken the mantle of picking up wickets as their other teammates have dwindled with their performances for Lucknow in recent matches.

Kyle Mayers, Quinton de Kock, Prerak Mankad, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya (c), Yash Thakur, Ravi Bishnoi, Yudhvir Singh, Avesh Khan (Potential Impact Substitute - Amit Mishra for Ayush Badoni)
Mumbai Indians batting lineup has been in great form in their last few games with their talisman Suryakumar Yadav and young upstart Nehal Wadhera, scoring bulk of the runs. The captain Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan haven’t contributed with big scores, but they have been backed up well by the middle order of Tim David and Cameron Green. As far as the MI bowling attack goes, the veteran Piyush Chawla is the pick of the bowlers, while contribution from Akash Madhwal in the last game has been a welcome change for the team management.

Lucknow Super Giants have been performing decently at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in low scoring matches during the 2023 edition of the IPL. Their upcoming opponents, Mumbai Indians, who are thriving with big totals match after match in the tournament, will have a tough task to adapt to tough batting conditions, which might lead to their eventual downfall.
