Lucknow can at best go to 14 points with a win here. Their run rate is so poor that even a huge win won’t see them get into the playoff spots. The hosts could go hard in the powerplay overs and make it their best phase of the match. I am backing Mumbai to score the most runs in the first six overs.

  • Lucknow Super Giants have conceded the most powerplay runs in 8 of their last 10 matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have scored the most powerplay runs in 4 of their last 9 matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have scored the most powerplay runs in 6 of their last 9 matches at this venue (IPL)
  • Lucknow Super Giants have conceded the most powerplay runs in 3 of their last 4 matches against Mumbai (IPL)

Head to Head


Mumbai and Lucknow have played each other in five matches so far, with four wins for the Super Giants and one victory for Mumbai.

That included a four-wicket win for the Super Giants earlier in the season, when the teams met in Lucknow. Batting first, Mumbai scored 144 for 7, with Nehal Wadhera top-scoring with 46. The chase went till the last over, but Marcus Stoinis’ knock (62 off 45) took Lucknow over the line.

Mumbai Indians Form


The Mumbai Indians are at the bottom of the points tally with eight points from 13 matches. They have lost five of their last six matches, including the reverse fixture in Lucknow.

The hosts won their last match at this venue, but that came after two consecutive losses at the Wankhede. With the tournament having ended for them, Mumbai would look to get their combinations right for the next season.

All eyes will be on Rohit Sharma (349 runs), who has been below par in the tournament. Jasprit Bumrah (20 wickets) remains their best bowler of the season and their best bet for a win.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Mumbai’s team selection could be an interesting one, as they look to give chances to their fringe players.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


The Super Giants are seventh in the standings with 12 points from 13 matches and are only clinging on to their chances. A win here will take them to 14, but with a poor net-run rate, they mightn’t make it to the playoffs.

Three consecutive losses have taken the sheen off the Super Giants season as they lost their way in the playoff race. With three defeats from their last four away matches, Lucknow could be staring at another defeat here.

Two batters aggregated 400+ runs for Lucknow this season, but their best player has been Marcus Stoinis (360 runs, four wickets). There were only two bowlers who took wickets in double digits for Lucknow.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


The Super Giants could look to bring someone like Arshin Kulkarni or Kyle Myers to add some strength to their top-order batting.

Verdict

For all practical purposes, this is just a game for the records. The Super Giants, because of their current net run rate issues, can’t get into the playoffs even with a big win. The Mumbai Indians could take their chances and start aggressively with a big powerplay. I am backing Mumbai to score more in the powerplay overs.
