Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will play Mumbai Indians (MI) in match 63 of the IPL 2023 at the BRSABV Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. This match will be a must-win game for both these sides to stay in contention for the playoffs race, as the winner will get one step ahead of the remaining contenders who are eyeing a spot in the playoffs.

MI will be coming after a 27-run victory against GT, and LSG is also coming after a seven-wicket win against SRH in their previous game. The absence of KL Rahul may affect LSG's chance of winning this game against MI, but both teams would punch above their weight to qualify for the playoffs in the IPL 2023.
