LSG vs MI Team Previews
Lucknow Super Giants
LSG’s previous match against RCB was marred by a series of tactical miscues. For LSG, keeping Stoinis out for so long is one of their most obvious mistakes. What a waste of a player who can do so much more.
Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul are under a lot of pressure to score runs in every match. So far, only these two LSG players have amassed more than 200 runs in the IPL 2022 competition. LSG’s batting will be in serious jeopardy if these two players go down early.
Consider KL Rahul’s record against MI in the past when making this decision. In 15 games, he has scored 764 runs at an average of 76.4 against them! He appears to relish the opportunity to face them. For this match, you can wager on his individual Over/Under total.
Ayush Badoni, Ayush Pandey, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, and Manish Pandey make up the middle order for LSG. Since Stoinis and Holder are often left with insufficient time to make an impact, this is a mistake.
We also think LSG’s bowling attack is a bit shaky. However, Ravi Bishnoi, who usually controls the match with tight bowling, went for runs earlier this season and all of them struggled. Jason Holder appears to be the designated death bowler, while Sudhmanth Chameera takes the new ball. Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis, and Avesh Khan can all contribute, but they’re not as good as the players on some other teams.
At least a few of LSG’s players are currently on top form. However, it isn’t nearly as good as it used to be.

When MI had CSK on the ropes, they must have thought they had finally won their first match of the IPL 2022 season. Unadkat’s meltdown in the final over led to a 16-run loss in the final four balls, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.
MI’s ability to assemble such an impressive roster continues to amaze. For their four overseas players, they used Rilee Meredith, Dewald Brevis, and Kieron Pollard. However, it doesn’t appear as if Tim David will get any more chances this season, which would have been great to see him in there.
That’s a real shame, because David is currently one of the most fearsome middle-order hitters in the world today.
Three prominent batsmen, Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard, are all out of sorts at the moment. When it comes to Dewald Brevis, he’s played poorly in his previous two games and needs to deliver on the promise that everyone talks about.
Currently, only Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma appear to be on top of their game. SKY and Tilak Varma are good bets if you have to wager on MI’s batsmen.
With Rohit’s selections, it was clear that MI’s bowling was in need of some attention. It seemed to work, as Daniel Sams, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith, and even Hrithik Shokeen had solid performances.
Though Jaydev Unadkat was abysmal. We may see a few more lineup tweaks as MI continues to search for a winning formula.
Any of the MI bowlers will not be a part of our wagers in this match.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Wankhede is expected to provide excellent batting conditions. Over 400 runs were scored in a previous match here, and the ball sailed over the fences with relative ease. This time, too, we expect the same outcome. A high-scoring match where both teams score at least 170 can be expected.
