  • KL Rahul has been top notch for LSG this season, especially at Ekana. He has scored two out of his three fifties at this venue. He is a top choice for LSG top batter. The conditions will help the spinners and Krunal Pandya can create big impact with his left arm spin. We are backing him as top wicket-taker for LSG.
  • Suryakumar Yadav has looked the most assured batter for MI. He has scored a couple of fiery fifties for the team. Surya is one of the best players in this format of the game and in a must win game, MI need him to fire. Back him as top MI batter. Jasprit Bumrah, with 14 wickets, is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament and should be backed as MI top bowler.
  • Rohit Sharma has not scored many runs but he has been aggressive at the top. Rohit will continue to score quick runs till the time he is at the crease. He should have a strike rate of over 140 in the inning.

Toss Predictions

Eyebrows were raised when Sam Curran chose to field first at this ground on Friday but in spite of his side conceding 261/6, they were still able to win the match with time to spare! As a result, we predict that both skippers will want to field first in this game.

Weather & Pitch Report


The temperature will range between 40 and 23 degrees. The humidity will be 14 per cent and the wind speed will be 27 km/h.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Ekana Stadium is slow, however, it gets better in the second innings as the ball skids from the surface if there is some dew around. Spinners are going to play a big role and wickets with new ball will be key. A score of around 200 should be par

Team NEWS: 

LSG Team News: 

The only change we see in the Lucknow Super Giants playing XI is Mayak Yadav replacing Mohsin Khan. Mayank has returned to bowling and he has got enough rest as well. Since LSG face a situation where they can’t afford to lose a game, Mayank Yadav should be drafted back in the playing XI.

MI Team News: 

Mumbai Indians have tried many combinations but it has not paid off. The team would like to bolster their spin attack in Lucknow thus Mohammad Nabi is likely to retain his place which was under a threat otherwise. Luke Wood is set to be left out for Gerald Coetzee, who missed the last game.

Winning Chances: 

LSG are favourites to win. LSG are clearly a better team on paper. MI have a fiery batting line-up but players have been out of form. Also, barring Bumrah, they don’t seem to have much quality in bowling. LSG, on the other hand, have been great with the bat while the conditions will suit LSG bowlers more due to the presence of multiple good spinners. For us, LSG are favourites.

Lucknow Super Giants to beat Mumbai Indians

Lucknow Super Giants a 75% chance to win this match 

Mumbai Indians a 25% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Lucknow Super Giants 

KL Rahul 

KL Rahul scored his third fifth of IPL 2024 as he scored 76 against Rajasthan Royals. He had scored 82 in the previous game against CSK at the same venue as well. Overall, he has scored 378 runs this season and will be key for LSG against Mumbai Indians.

Marcus Stoinis 

Marcus Stoinis scored a brilliant 124 against CSK but was out for a duck against Royals. Stoinis is a game changer for LSG and if he is at the crease, LSG will chase down any score or post a match winning total. We are expecting another good show by Stoinis as he seems to be enjoying the promotion in the batting order and MI’s bowling hasn’t been that great this season. Stoinis also picked a wicket against RR and thus his all-round abilities will be vital for LSG.

Nicholas Pooran 

Pooran has been outstanding for LSG this season. He has scored 291 runs for the team. Coming late in the innings, he has played multiple match winning innings. He has also hit 22 sixes during his stay at the crease.

Krunal Pandya 

Pandya gave just 24 runs in the previous game where Royals chased 197. All other bowlers were taken to the cleaners. He is a very efficient bowler and conditions are suited to him. Also, he is a handy batter down the order.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

M Siddharth, Deepak Hooda/ Amit Mishra, K Gowtham, Yudhvir Singh, Arshin Kulkarnie 

Deepak Hooda could be used as an impact player if LSG are chasing a score and Amit Mishra can be used as an impact player if LSG are defending.

Mumbai Indians 

Rohit Sharma 

Rohit Sharma is the only MI batter who has scored a century this season but he has been far from his best.  He has scored 311 at a strike rate of 160 but hasn’t look peak Rohit Sharma that we have been seen in the past. In a must win game, Rohit Sharma should return for form for MI.

Suryakumar Yadav 

Suryakumar Yadav has blown hot and cold for MI. He has scored a couple of fifties but has also failed in three games. He is one player on which MI rely a lot thus Surya needs to come good against LSG if MI have to return to winning ways.

Jasprit Bumrah 

Bumrah has bowled his heart out for MI this season. With 14 wickets, he is currently the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. MI have conceded a few 200 and 250+ scores this season but still Bumrah’s economy has been less than 7 which shows the calibre of the pacer..

Gerald Coetzee 

Coetzee missed the last game due to a stomach bug and should return to the team. The pacer might leak a few runs but is a wicket-taker. He has taken 12 wickets this season for MI.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Namam Dhir, Shams Mulani, Dawald Brevis, Kumar Kartikeya/Nehal Wadhera 

MI might want to try spinner Kumar Kartikeya in Lucknow thus he could be used as an impact if MI are batting first while in a chase, Nehal Wadhera can be used.

Team Forms: 

LSG Team Form: 

LSG have blown hot and cold so far. They have played nine matches, winning five and losing four. The team could have won a couple more games had they capitalized on crunch moments.

MI Team Form: 

MI have been very ordinary this season. They have played nine games, winning just three. They face a must win situation as a defeat will mean the team won’t be able to qualify for playoffs on their own.
