The Mumbai Indians are set to travel northwards as they take on the Lucknow Super Giants at the Ekana Stadium. This game will be important for both teams especially as they have the best chance to qualify for the playoffs. MI took down Gujarat Titans in a statement 27-run win at home. While LSG pulled off another stunning chase to defeat the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
The Lucknow Super Giants have seemingly got back to winning ways after a few big losses in the tournament. The bowling has lost some bite with the departure of Mark Wood but the Indian group of pacers Yash Thakur and Yudhvir Singh Charak have done a decent job. Whereas with the bat, LSG boasts of one of the most powerful batting lineups with the likes of Quinton de Kock, Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran in sublime form.
On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians have found form at the most important phase in the tournament as they have managed to avoid the middle muddle and jump up into the top four. The MI batting has been scoring runs at a prolific rate with multiple 200+ chases in the 2023 season. Whereas the Mumbai bowling continues to be a major concern for the side as they have often gone for runs this year but displayed some improvements in the last game.
