Lucknow and Mumbai have had to wait till the very end of their league matches to book their playoff spots. It has been an up and down season for both teams, so it’s hard to pick out a winner here. Mumbai’s experience in the knockouts may give them a slight edge, but we are staying away from the winner’s market. Our pick is in the powerplay segment with Mumbai tipped to score the most runs in the first six overs.

  • Lucknow Super Giants have conceded the most powerplay runs in their last 5 matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have scored the most powerplay runs in 5 of their last 6 matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have scored the most powerplay runs in their last 2 matches against Lucknow (IPL)
  • Ravi Bishnoi has been Lucknow’s highest wicket taker in their last 2 matches (IPL)
  • Akash Madhwal topped Mumbai’s bowling charts in 2 of their last 3 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


These two teams have played each other three times in the competition with Lucknow winning each time.

These sides met just over a week back in Lucknow where the Super Giants won a tight game by five runs. They needed 11 to win off the final over but Mohsin Khan held his nerve, giving away just five to the duo of Cameron Green and Tim David.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow ended their group stage campaign with 17 points and finished third. They finished with three wins in a row, although the last two have been tight.

As the season progressed, Lucknow were able to get runs from their middle-order with Nicholas Pooran (358) and Marcus Stoinis (368) impressing. Yet, the poor form of Quinton de Kock and the absence of a batting anchor remains a worrying factor.

Bowling has been mostly about Ravi Bishnoi (16) who could enjoy the conditions in Chennai. He took three wickets when he played here earlier this season.

Opening remains a challenging aspect for Lucknow who have also struggled with the poor form of their Indian batters.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai finished fourth on a topsy-turvy last day, needing Gujarat to beat Bangalore in the final match of the regular season. They are coming on the back of three wins from four matches.

The only loss during this sequence came against Lucknow, though. Even in Chennai, they lost the only match they played – to old nemesis CSK by six wickets.

The form of Suryakumar Yadav (511 runs) will be crucial as the right-hander seems to have taken off in the recent matches. Rohit Sharma’s form remains a concern while with the ball it is veteran Piyush Chawla (20) enjoying a renaissance.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Mumbai could look at drafting the fit-again Tilak Varma back into the paying XI.
