Mumbai Indians will lock horns with Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator of IPL 2023 on May 24 at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The five-time champions qualified for the playoffs after defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last league game.
Batting first, the Sunrisers scored 200 runs after Vivrant Sharma and Mayank Agarwal stitched together a first-wicket partnership of 140 runs. But Mumbai Indians chased down the target in only 18 overs. Cameron Green scored a sensational unbeaten century off just 47 balls while skipper Rohit Sharma scored a half century.
Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, defeated the Kolkata Knight Riders in their last league game. A half century from Nicholas Pooran took them to a first innings total of 176 runs, in reply to which KKR gave a good fight before losing the game by just 1 run. Ravi Bishnoi and Yash Thakur picked up two wickets each.
When MI and LSG met in the league stage of the tournament, LSG won by five runs after defending a total of 177 runs which they built on the back of a half century by Marcus Stoinis. LSG have, in fact, won all the three games they have played against Mumbai Indians since last year.

LSG vs MI Match Prediction
Mumbai have never beaten Lucknow in the IPL. They have lost all the three games played between the two sides. But some of their big names regained form in the latter stages of the tournament, including the likes of Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green. Both LSG and MI look strong on paper and the result can go either way.
