Lucknow Super Giants are currently at the 4th position on the points table. After back to back victories against the 2023 IPL Champions, Chennai Super Kings, Lucknow Super Giants were beaten in their last game when they were unable to defend a target of 197 against table-toppers Rajasthan Royals. Skipper KL Rahul, hit an imperious 76 runs from 48 balls with Deepak Hooda making a 31-ball 50 as well. However, their bowling needs to be more penetrative in this game as only three wickets were taken against the Royals. A win for Lucknow in this game will be enough to get them into the top four.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians are one of three teams at the foot of the league on six points. The Hardik Pandya led side faced a 10-run defeat against Delhi Capitals on Saturday.  Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya, and Tim David played enterprising innings for MI, but it wasn’t enough for them to overhaul the big total on the board. However, the bowling attack of Mumbai was put to the sword, conceding 257 runs, despite the economical bowling spells from Jasprit Bumrah and Piyush Chawla. MI really need the likes of Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav to deliver in this match.
