Lucknow Super Giants have been impressive with their tactics
- Mumbai Indians hope for captain Rohit Sharma to step up
- Where will Lucknow bat Marcus Stoinis this match?
Lucknow Super Giants have been impressive in their debut season in IPL 2022 and have odds of 1.92 to beat Mumbai Indians, who have lost each of their five games so far. Noteworthy, Lucknow are fifth in the points table with three wins and two losses so far.
Mumbai Indians just can’t seem to get out of the rut and have lost all of their five matches. It will take a huge turnaround for Mumbai Indians to make a comeback in IPL 2022. They will have their task cut out by an impressive Lucknow Super Giants unit. MI have odds of 1.83 to win this match.
Can Jasprit Bumrah and Co. deliver?
Mumbai Indians have been disappointing with the ball with Jasprit Bumrah and his partners struggling to restrict opposition teams. Against Punjab Kings, the opening pair put on 97 for the first wicket to thwart Mumbai’s plans. Lucknow have a similarly good opening pair in KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock, who will be up against his former franchise, and the duo will be eyeing a big one.
LSG are our favourites to win this game with their strong batting line-up giving them an edge over Mumbai Indians.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
Lucknow had Marcus Stoinis coming in as late as No.8 last match and have a super strong batting line-up. The flexibility in batting positions further make LSG a dangerous unit with several all-rounders too to contribute to the bowling.
Keep an eye on…
Jason Holder: The West Indies all-rounder can swing the new ball and is dangerous upfront against the openers. Mumbai Indians will be wary of his abilities in the powerplay and his batting potential down the order.
Suryakumar Yadav: Suryakumar Yadav’s return has made Mumbai Indians multiple times stronger and he has delivered big time in each of the three games. Against a bowling attack like LSG, Suryakumar’s presence in the middle-order will be a huge boost for MI.
TIP: Lucknow Super Giants have two impressive opening batters. Back LSG at 1.84 to be the team with the higher score at first dismissal!
