LSG vs MI match preview

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow Super Giants are currently in good form. They had lost their way after their designated skipper KL Rahul had gotten injured and was subsequently out of the IPL in the second half of the season. But Krunal Pandya stepped up to lead the side and they have now won their last three matches.

The streak began with the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad where they won by seven wickets and then followed it with close wins by five runs and one run in the last two games against MI and KKR. LSG have the psychological advantage of beating MI in their most recent encounter as well. 

The last time these two teams met, LSG posted 177 runs for the loss of three wickets in their 20 overs. Marcus Stoinis smashed 89 runs off 47 balls with 4 fours and 8 sixes while Krunal Pandya played second fiddle to him scoring 49 runs off 42 balls. With the ball, Ravi Bishnoi was the one who turned the game on its head with a spell of 2/26 in his four overs.

Despite MI getting off to a good start, LSG did well to restrict them and eventually won the game by five runs.

LSG possible 11: Karan Sharma/Deepak Hooda, Quinton de Kock (WK), Prerak Mankad, Krunal Pandya (C), Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni, Nicholas Pooran, Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen-ul-Haq, Mohsin Khan, Yash Thakur

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians, meanwhile, have endured a topsy-turvy journey so far in IPL 2023. They won 8 matches in the league stage and were lucky to qualify for the IPL playoffs 2023 with poor NRR after Gujarat Titans defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday. Nevertheless, MI are in good batting form.

They smashed 201 runs to win against SRH in their previous league stage game thanks to Cameron Green, who came to the party with a stunning century in a must-win game.

MI possible 11: Ishan Kishan (WK), Rohit Sharma (C), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tim David, Nehal Wadhera, Chris Jordan, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendorff, Akash Madhwal, Kumar Kartikeya

Pitch and expected weather conditions

The surface at MA Chidambaram Stadium could be a used one on which the first Qualifier is played. If that is the case, then the pitch is likely to slow down considerably. The venue is known to assist spinners but if dew comes down which is uncertain, defending a total becomes a tough task.

Chennai weather is set to be fair on Wednesday (May 24) with no rain in the forecast. The temperature is likely to be around 35-36 Degrees Celsius.

LSG vs MI Dream11 prediction

Our LSG vs MI Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicket keepers: Quinton de Kock, Nicholas Pooran, Ishan Kishan
  • Batters: Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma
  • All-rounders: Marcus Stoinis, Cameron Green, Krunal Pandya
  • Bowlers: Piyush Chawla, Ravi Bishnoi, Akash Madhwal
  • Recommended captain: Marcus Stoinis
  • Recommended vice-captain: Cameron Green

As many as three wicketkeeper options are available for this match in Dream11 Fantasy and none can be ignored. De Kock, Pooran and Kishan all are in good touch and can win games single-handedly for their side. Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma are in excellent form at the moment and can be picked.

The all-rounder department has the likes of Marcus Stoinis, Cameron Green and LSG skipper Krunal Pandya and all three should be selected. Stoinis scored 89* runs in the previous game against MI while Green is coming off a stunning ton and Krunal is a must-have given he bowls four overs and bats in the top four.

Among bowlers, Chawla and Bishnoi are a must given the conditions while Madhwal has emerged as a wicket-taker in the death overs which makes him a must-pick, according to our LSG v MI Dream11 prediction.

LSG vs MI match prediction: Lucknow Super Giants to win

Our LSG vs MI match prediction for the Eliminator Final is that the Lucknow Super Giants are expected to seal their spot in the second Qualifier with a win in this encounter.

LSG are yet to lose to MI in three matches and also beat them earlier this season in the league stage. Moreover, they are in the middle of a three-match winning streak, and the conditions at the Chepauk will be better suited to them, as they have quality spinners.

LSG vs MI toss prediction: LSG to win the toss and bowl first

Our LSG vs MI toss prediction: LSG are expected to win the toss and opt to bowl first as four matches have been won by teams chasing at the venue in IPL 2023. The average first innings score has come down to 150 runs in the last three matches at the venue.

If dew plays a role, chasing will be extremely easy.

Man of the match prediction: Krunal Pandya

LSG’s stand-in skipper Krunal Pandya likes challenges and he is expected to lead from the front in this game. He bats at four and bowls four overs as well which makes him a valuable player. Moreover, the conditions here will suit his bowling style as well. 

LSG vs MI betting odds

  • Lucknow Super Giants odds: 2.20
  • Mumbai Indians odds: 1.67

The odds are stacked heavily in favour of the five-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians. 

However, LSG have an unscathed record against them in three matches so far and they will be more confident of coming out victorious in this encounter. LSG also look more settled with an all-round unit and for us, they start as favourites.
