Lucknow Super Giants will take on Mumbai Indians in the all-important Eliminator of the Indian Premier League 2023 season, on Wednesday, the 24th of May, 2023. LSG started the season off brilliantly but lost their way in the middle phase of the tournament. Unfortunately, their skipper KL Rahul has been injured and will miss the remainder of the season. Krunal Pandya has been leading the team in Rahul’s absence. Ravi Bishnoi has been in great form and the rest of the bowlers have also chipped in. Avesh Khan has done well for LSG in patches, Marcus Stoinis and Nicolas Pooran have been at their destructive best so far this season and are the main reason behind the team’s success. Together these two have taken LSG to a few unlikely victories and will be key in the fixture against Mumbai Indians.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians started off slowly but bounced back well under the leadership of Rohit Sharma who is slightly short on runs with the bat. A win in this encounter against the LSG will take them to the 2nd Qualifiers and a step closer to the finals. Players like Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Nehal Wadhera, Piyush Chawla and Akash Madhwal are clicking at the right time. Cameron Green, Kumar Kartikeya and Tim David have also done well in patches. Chris Jordan, the replacement for Jofra Archer, has been very expensive and will need to re-think his strategies. Akash Madhwal has been phenomenal in the death for Mumbai Indians. Tilak Varma was out with an injury and will likely return to the Mumbai Indians playing XI in this fixture against the Lucknow Super Giants.
