Lucknow need to win both their remaining matches to be sure of playoff qualification. Losing even one match would need them to depend on other results. Mumbai will finish in the top-two with two wins, but if they win one, there are higher chances of qualifying for the playoffs.

With only two matches left, both teams will be gunning for two wins to make sure they don’t rely on other results. Lucknow have been one of the best travelling sides this season but have struggled at home for results. Mumbai may be peaking at the right time which makes me back them for a win here.

  • Lucknow Super Giants have scored the most 6s in 3 of their last 4 completed matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians could hit the most 6s in just 2 of their last 7 matches (IPL)
  • Lucknow Super Giants have lost their last 3 completed matches at this venue (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have won 4 of their last 5 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


These teams have met twice last season, and both times it was the Lucknow Super Giants who ended up winning. The first match at the Brabourne saw Lucknow win by 18 runs while the second-one saw them win by 36 runs. KL Rahul scored 103* in both the matches to end up winning the game for Lucknow and his absence will be felt here.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow Super Giants are 4th in the standings with 13 points. They have a match against Kolkata Knight Riders remaining after this. With two wins and two losses from their last four completed matches, it has been a roller coaster ride for the Super Giants.

What should be heartening for the side is how Prerak Mankad, Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis gave them an unbelievable win against Sunrisers last time out, after being on the back foot for long parts of the game.

Rahul’s absence puts more pressure on Pooran (294) to be consistent with the bat. With the ball, Ravi Bishnoi (12) remains their best bet but has a point to prove after two wicketless matches.

The winning combination could be continued, especially with Mankad making the number three spot his own in the previous match.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai Indians are 3rd with 14 points from 12 matches. After a slow start, they have picked up pace with four wins from their last five matches.

Their last match was a 27-run win over Gujarat Titans which should ideally have been a bigger margin. They couldn’t contain the breezy Rashid Khan (79* off 32) and that impacted their net run rate, which is still in the negative.

The biggest positive for Mumbai has been Suryakumar Yadav’s run rush in the recent matches (479) while Ishan Kishan (366) continues to go his aggressive way at the top. With the ball, it’s the wily old veteran Piyush Chawla (19 wickets) who’s been their leader.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Tilak Varma has been injured and missed the last few matches for Mumbai. It’s not yet known if he’s fit again but even if he is fit, it could be a tough decision to drop Nehal Wadhera and bring Tilak back.
