Our LSG vs MI Dream11 prediction for this match

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul, Nicholas Pooran 
  • Batter(s): Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma 
  • All-rounder(s): Hardik Pandya, Marcus Stoinis
  • Bowler(s): Jasprit Bumrah, Yash Thakur, Mohsin Khan 
  • Recommended captain: KL Rahul
  • Recommended vice-captain: Suryakumar Yadav 

Here in the LSG vs MI match prediction, let's shed some light on why we have picked this XI for the Dream11 contest. Looking at the average score here, we will go with a balanced approach.

From the wicket-keepers, we have picked all three LSG players KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock and Nicholas Pooran. De Kock hasn't been in great form but should enjoy batting against the pace heavy MI line-up. 

Among the batters, we have included Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma. All three have been in good form and bat in the top four. Hardik Pandya came to bat earlier in the last game and scored some runs while Marcus Stoinis has been batting at number and has hit a century recently. 

In the bowling section, we have got the best in the world Jasprit Bumrah, Yash Thakur and Mohsin Khan. The LSG pace pair has been in pretty good form. 

As for C and VC, we have KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav. Rahul not only is in great touch but has an incredible record versus Mumbai with an average of 87, including three centuries and five half centuries. Suryakumar has looked in good form and has two fifties in five innings. 

Match prediction: Lucknow Super Giants to win

These two teams have faced each other four times in the IPL with Lucknow Super Giants winning three of those. Add to that the current form of two teams this season, LSG hold an advantage. Lucknow have a pretty solid batting line-up while Mumbai also have a formidable batting unit. LSG seems to have better bowling resources whereas MI bowling attack is heavily reliant on Jasprit Bumrah. Our match prediction is for Lucknow Super Giants to win. 

Toss prediction: Mumbai Indians to win the toss and field first

Looking at the record, the Ekana Cricket Stadium doesn't show much bias for the team batting first or second. The venue has hosted a total of 12 matches in the IPL, with the team batting first winning six and the chasing team claiming five games. The team batting second won the last three games played here. Our toss prediction is Mumbai Indians will win the toss and opt to field first. 

Man of the match prediction: KL Rahul 

KL Rahul has batted with an improved intent in the ongoing tournament. He has scored 378 runs from nine innings at an average of 42 and strike rate of 144. He has smashed three half centuries in the season. Rahul has an excellent record versus Mumbai Indians, with 867 runs at an average of 87 while striking at 136. He has three hundreds and five fifties against MI. Back him to be at his best in this game. 

Betting Odds

  • Lucknow Super Giants: 2.00 (PARIMATCH)
  • Mumbai Indians: 1.80 (PARIMATCH)

The bookmakers have Mumbai Indians as favourites heading into this match. MI are reeling in the bottom two but still have lesser odds of 1.80 to win this match whereas Lucknow Super Giants have a bigger odds of 2.00. 


A strong believer in the fact that Kohli and Paes are the greatest Indian superstars!
