Mumbai Indians is set to take on the debuting franchise Lucknow Super Giants in Match 26 of the IPL 2022 on 16th April at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians (MI) have been nowhere near their best in the ongoing Indian T20 tournament. The franchise has already lost five matches on the trot and are on the thin lines of elimination from the IPL 2022.
The experts have criticised the franchise for its poor strategy during the player auctions. MI exhausted a major chunk of its purse value on overseas players, but they haven’t been used extensively in IPL 2022.
The likes of Tim David and Tymal Mills are not used on regular basis, inviting sharp questions on their selection during the auction.
On the other side, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) have done fairly well to keep things under control so far. The debutant franchise led by KL Rahul has won three matches out of five played so far.
Lucknow lost its last match against Rajasthan Royals (RR) by mere three runs and will look to dominate the already struggling Mumbai Indians.

MI Vs LSG Pitch Report
IPL batters have dominated the batting surface offered by the Brabourne Stadium. The pitch would be hard with a good bounce in it which can be exploited by the pacers. It will be an afternoon fixture, hence dew won’t hinder the balance of the contest. A score of 190 plus seems to be a par score.
