For Lucknow, the pair of Amit Mishra and Ravi Bishnoi can prove to be sharp against Mumbai. Both have dismissed Ishan Kishan 6 times in 29 balls. The record of both against captain Rohit Sharma is also excellent.
The Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL 2023) eliminator match will be played between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. The winning team will take on Gujarat Titans (GT) in Qualifier 2. Mumbai Indians have Chris Jordan as their death overs specialist. The record of Lucknow star batsman Marcus Stoinis against Jordan is excellent. Apart from this, Ravi Bishnoi and Amit Mishra have two weapons each to stop Ishan Kishan near Lucknow.
In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan has been handling Mumbai’s death overs for the last few matches. Marcus Stoinis’ record against him is excellent. He has hit 151 runs in 61 balls. The team led by Krunal Pandya would want the kangaroo batting to stay at the crease till the end.
Ishan Kishan be careful
For Lucknow, the pair of Amit Mishra and Ravi Bishnoi can prove to be sharp against Mumbai. Both have dismissed Ishan Kishan 6 times in 29 balls. The record of both against captain Rohit Sharma is also excellent. Apart from this, Suryakumar Yadav’s strike rate drops from 150 to 127 in Chepauk. This is a matter of little concern for the Mumbai team.
Ravi Bishnoi and Amit Mishra will play
The Lucknow team will definitely give a chance to both the leg-spinners considering the record of Ravi Bishnoi and Amit Mishra and the nature of the Chepauk pitch. If this happens, the hopes of Mumbai Indians will be on Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green. Both the batsmen get out very rarely against the leg-spinners and their strike rate is also close to 140.
Cameron Green in fine form
Cameron Green did brilliantly in the last match. He scored a century to win Mumbai in an important match. Rohit Sharma has also returned to form. He scored a half-century in the last match. At the same time, Suryakumar Yadav is also batting well. There is little chance of a big score on the Chepauk pitch. The pitch will get slow, in such a situation, a fight can be seen even on the score of 150 runs.
