In the second playoff match (Eliminator) of the ongoing IPL 2023, Mumbai Indians will lock horns with Lucknow Super Giants. The winner of this game will take on the defending champions, Gujarat Titans on May 26. Talking about the virtual quarterfinal, the five-time winners don’t have the best of records against the 2022 debutants. MI have lost all their three games against LSG since last year.
Not to forget, the Rohit Sharma-led side lost to the Super Giants in the last phase of the league stage in the ongoing season. Talking about the Krunal Pandya-led side, they have been accustomed to playing on a dry surface that will be on offer in Chepauk. Not to forget, they had one at their home ground in Lucknow. On the other hand, MI is more suited to playing on good batting surfaces on which the ball comes on nicely.
Meanwhile, in this listicle, we will discuss the five players to watch out for in the upcoming game.
Five players to watch out for in Mumbai Indians vs Lucknow Super Giants game
1. Piyush Chawla
The discarded India leggie has been the highest wicket-taker and the only successful bowler for MI. Not to forget, the team has been suffering from experienced bowling resources. The 2011 World Cup winner has taken 20 wickets and has been in the fifth spot in the Purple Cap race. With the kind of wicket on offer, his performance will matter a lot.
