April 23, 2022

Lucknow will take on Mumbai in the 37th match of the Indian T20 League 2022. This will be the second time the teams will clash in this edition of the tournament. Notably,  the previous encounter went in Lucknow's favour. Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host the match on the 24th of April. The men in turquoise stand fourth on the points table with four wins under their belt in seven games. Rohit Sharma's Mumbai, on the other hand, are still winless after seven games. They stand at the bottom of the points table.

Team Updates

Lucknow

Under the leadership of KL Rahul, Lucknow has thrived in its debut season. They have formed a good balance in the team, with all players taking on the responsibility to deliver for the side. They lost their previous game against Bangalore and will be keen to bounce back. The team's batting has blown hot and cold and the players will need to be a lot more consistent. Lucknow's bowlers, however, have been decent this season.

Players to watch out for

KL Rahul- The last time KL Rahul played against Mumbai, he scored a century in the match. This time too, he will be looking to get a good score to help the team win the match. In the seven matches that he has played this season, he has scored 265 runs.

Marcus Stoinis- Marcus Stoinis has been a success for the team since his arrival this season. The all-rounder has scored 72 runs in three games at a strike rate of 175. Stoinis on his day can be a match winner on his own.

Probable Playing XI

KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Manish Pandey, Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Dushmantha Chameera, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi

Mumbai

The most successful franchise of the tournament, Mumbai have struggled this season. They came very close to winning their last game against Chennai but MS Dhoni deprived them of the same. They would eagerly want to win the next fixture to redeem themselves a bit in the tournament. However, they will have to make a lot of improvements to their approach to be able to win the match.

Their openers, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan have not been able to do much. Other key players, including Jasprit Bumrah and Kieron Pollard, have not contributed much to the team as well. All of these players will need to step up and provide their finest performances in future games.

Players to watch out for

Suryakumar Yadav- Suryakuar Yadav has been a strong player for the team and has always attempted to lead the side to victory, but has yet to accomplish so. He has scored 232 runs in the five games that he has played this season.

Tilak Varma- Tilak Varma is another player who has consistently contributed to the team's performance. In his seven appearances thus far, he has scored 234 runs for the team, including two half-centuries.

Probable Playing XI

Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Daniel Sams, Hrithik Shokeen, Riley Meredith, Jaydev Unadkat, Jasprit Bumrah

Pitch Report

The Wankhede track has been a good one for batters. Over 400 runs were scored in the previous match played here between Delhi and Rajasthan. Once again, a high scoring game can be on the cards. Teams winning the toss would look to bowl first given the dew.
