Lucknow Super Giants vs Mumbai Indians

Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow


Total         :  4
MI Won     :  1
LSG Won  :  3


                              More runs than two days ago? This game will be played on a red soil surface and the visitors are packed to the rafters with big-hitters.

LSG have had a fairly good season thus far, but we're at that stage of the tournament where destiny can slip away very quickly even from the tightest of grasps. Ask Rajasthan Royals of 2023. It's a tightrope that LSG are currently walking steadily on, alongside several other top-four suitors. They will run into many plucky sides looking to shake them off their feet, starting with the pluckiest of all in Hardik Pandya's team.

Mumbai Indians are dealing with a different cliche, as they head into every game in a must-win situation to lift them off the bottom pile. After 10 games last season, they had only 5 wins and yet reached the playoffs. The slight similarity in position (3 wins in 9 games) this year and the knowledge that they're capable of beating the odds from here has kept the spirits high in their dressing room.

Even as the two teams are separated by 4 points and three spots on the table, a bad result on Tuesday has the capability to put both their campaigns in a tailspin to varying degrees.


Injuries/Availability: "Mayank is fit. He's passed all his fitness tests. Very excited to probably have him back and in the playing potential XII for tomorrow," LSG assistant coach Morne Morkel said .The 21-year-old, who bowled on the eve of the game, could be LSG's impact substitute against MI.

Probable LSG XI: Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul(w/c), Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Matt Henry, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Yash Thakur [Impact sub: Amit Mishra/Mayank Yadav]

Injuries/Availability: Gerald Coetzee missed MI's game in Delhi two days ago with a stomach bug. Remains to be seen if he's fit for Tuesday's match..

Probable MI XI: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya, Nehal Wadhera, Tim David, Mohammad Nabi, Piyush Chawla, Luke Wood/Gerald Coetzee, Jasprit Bumrah, Nuwan Thushara [Impact sub: Suryakumar Yadav]
