Mumbai Indians vs Lucknow Super Giants Today Match Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the MI vs LSG Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. Lucknow Super Giants will face Mumbai Indians in the 26th match of the TATA IPL, 2022 on Wednesday, 16 April 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium. Keep on reading for more information on the MI vs LSG game.

Mumbai Indians are in danger of making an early exit to the playoff race after losing their first 5 games and from now on, every match is do-or-die for them. They desperately need a win from this encounter and Rohit Sharma himself will have to lead the charge. Specifically, their bowling needs a big-time fix and tough calls need to be taken. 

If we take a look at Lucknow Supergiants then they would be really satisfied with their start of the tournament so far. The return of Marcus Stoinis makes them really strong but constant collapses in the middle order have been costing them really badly. Lucknow Supergiants look really solid at the moment but need to be up to mark on those small key moments which has been their weakness.

Lucknow Supergiants are undoubtedly favorites for this contest against Mumbai who are yet to open an account. Although Tilak Verma’s and Suryakumar’s form in the middle order has been really lethal and Mumbai would hope to start their Innings in the points table.

LSG to win

Lucknow is expected to win this contest against Mumbai. Mumbai is struggling with many problems at the moment and Brabourne Surface will add to their misery in the bowling department. Only Jasprit Bumrah has been economical for them and the lack of options on the bench makes it a really difficult situation to deal with. 

While Lucknow looks really solid despite losing the last match in the final over. The presence of Marcus Stoinis makes them a real force to reckon with. While they would’ve had to still find death bowling solutions as it could be exposed in Brabourne Stadium heavily.
