LSG vs MI Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 63 | LKN vs MI Dream11 Prediction Today | Lucknow Pitch Report

Here we go. Another crucial match in this magnificent playoffs’ race. Mumbai Indians (MI) have wowed millions with their batting in IPL 2023, led by the super Suryakumar Yadav. However, the big question is how their lineup, which thrives on true pitches, will cope on the slowest and most difficult surface to bat on this season.

This is what arguably gives Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) the edge today. However, it could backfire. LSG have struggled at home this season, with their own set of hard-hitting batsmen struggling to get going. Nicholas Pooran was at his damaging best on a slowish Hyderabad pitch on Saturday, so we can still witness a thrilling battle between two strong middle orders today.

So, the spinners have a vital role to play. Both teams sit in the top four, with the winning team today set to move to the brink of the playoffs. The loser will face a nervous week ahead with four other teams – RCB, RR, KKR and PBKS – all on 12 points. All to play for.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Lucknow Super Giants:

  • Quinton de Kock averages just 17.86 in seven matches against MI. But, he comes into this game with some good form having struck 70 and 29 in his last two IPL matches.
  • Can Marcus Stoinis overcome the spin threat? He is averaging just 11.2 with a strike rate of 96.6 in six innings at Lucknow this season.
  • Nicholas Pooran has also found the going tough at home this season. In six innings, the left-hander has hit 77 runs at an average of 15.4 and strike rate of 105.5.
  • Pooran smashed 44 off just 13 balls on a slowish Hyderabad pitch on Saturday. If he is there towards the death overs, watch out.
  • Krunal Pandya meets his former team today. The LSG all-rounder has picked up six wickets in 15 overs at Lucknow this season, conceding just 87 in the process.
  • Seven of Ravi Bishnoi’s 12 wickets this season have come at home. Against MI, Bishnoi has picked up seven wickets at an average of 22.43 and strike rate of 18.00.
  • Amit Mishra has dismissed Ishan Kishan three times in eight balls in the IPL. The legspinner has taken five for 53 runs in nine overs at Lucknow this season.

Mumbai Indians:

  • Ishan Kishan has struck the most runs in T20s at Lucknow. In five innings, the left-hander has scored 246 runs at an average of 61.50 and strike rate of 131.55. This includes a ton.
  • Suryakumar Yadav is back. He hit a world class hundred in his last match against GT, and easily has the best strike rate (190.83) among players with at least 200 runs this season. However, how he fares on a slow turner will be fascinating to see.
  • MI could look to use Piyush Chawla early. The legspinner has dismissed Quinton de Kock once in 13 balls at a strike rate of just 69.2.
  • Chawla has taken the third-most wickets this season (19). He should enjoy bowling on the Lucknow track.
  • Chris Jordan has a strong record against de Kock. In all T20s, Jordan has dismissed the left-hander four times for 45 runs in 33 deliveries.
