LSG vs MI – IPL – Team Previews
Lucknow Super Giants
Both teams enter the Eliminator with a similar recent form, each securing three wins in their last five matches. LSG claimed the third spot in the IPL table following a narrow one-run victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous outing. The match was decided by an explosive innings from Nicholas Pooran, who scored 58 runs, including five sixes.
To succeed, LSG will rely on a strong performance from their opening batsmen, Quinton de Kock and Karan Sharma, who aim to exploit the vulnerabilities in Mumbai’s new ball attack. The presence of Nicholas Pooran and Ayush Badoni adds depth to LSG’s batting lineup, with Pooran expected to provide powerful hitting in the later stages of the innings. While LSG has been successful in setting and chasing targets in recent games, they heavily depend on their overseas batsmen.
Facing a formidable Mumbai batting lineup, LSG’s bowlers will face a tough challenge. LSG may consider making a change in their opening batting order, potentially replacing Karan Sharma with one of their frontline bowlers, such as Mohsin Khan or Yash Thakur. Fortunately, LSG does not have any notable fitness concerns to address.
In their final league match, Mumbai Indians secured their fourth-place finish with an impressive eight-wicket win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Cameron Green’s brilliant century added to the Sunrisers’ woes, as they concluded the season at the bottom of the table. Green has been exceptional in the IPL, and his recent century elevated his average to over 50.
The return of Rohit Sharma to form is a positive development for Mumbai Indians. He will aim to forge a strong opening partnership with Ishan Kishan. With Cameron Green’s match-winning century in the previous game, Mumbai’s middle order is bolstered by power hitters like Suryakumar Yadav and Tim David.
Throughout the season, Mumbai’s bowling attack has posed challenges for the team. Leg-spinner Piyush Chawla has been the standout performer among the bowlers, but skipper Rohit Sharma would require someone like off-spinner Hrithik Shokeen to step up, particularly against left-handed batsmen from the opposition. Tilak Varma appears to be fit, as he was listed as an Impact Player substitute in the previous game and was prepared to bat if needed.

Lucknow Super Giants: K Mayers, De Kock (wk), Prerak Mankad, M Stoinis, Nich Pooran, K Pandya (Cap), A Badoni, K Gowtham, R Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Y Thakur

The Chepauk Stadium is renowned for its slow surface, demanding batsmen to put in extra effort to score runs. Spinners particularly thrive on this track, benefiting from the surface’s grip and sharp turn. Fast bowlers who vary their lines and lengths have also found success on this wicket.
