LSG Predicted playing XI:
Quinton de Kock, Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Prerak Mankad, Nicholas Pooran, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Amit Mishra, Yash Thakur
MI Predicted playing XI:
Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Cameron Green, Nehal Wadhera, Vishnu Vinod, Tim David, Suryakumar Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Chris Jordan, Jason Behrendorff, Kumar Kartikeya
Krunal Pandya: On a slow track, Krunal has been menacing this season and against his former IPL side, expect the left-arm spinner to thrive.
Suryakumar Yadav: Suryakumar is in outstanding form and could put this Lucknow attack to sword irrespective of conditions.
