LSG) will be looking to address their opening partner conundrum alongside Quinton de Kock, potentially bringing back Kyle Mayers in place of Naveen-ul-Haq. On this particular surface, Amit Mishra could play a crucial role as an impact substitute. LSG will hope for Marcus Stoinis to continue his impressive form and exploit his exceptional record against Mumbai Indians’ designated death bowler, Chris Jordan, having scored a staggering 151 runs off just 61 balls against him. If Rohit Sharma manages to survive the new ball spell, LSG’s bowlers, including Mishra and Ravi Bishnoi, will be confident in their ability to challenge the Mumbai Indians’ captain.

Probable XI: Kyle Mayers, Quinton de Kock (WK), Prerak Mankad, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya (C), Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, K Gowtham, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Yash Thakur

(MI) might consider bringing back Hrithik Shokeen due to the number of left-handers in the LSG lineup. Tilak Varma, who was listed as a substitute in the previous game, is also likely to make it to the XI. If Lucknow Super Giants field both their leg-spinners, MI’s best chance of countering them will lie with Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green, as both players have a strong record against leg-spinners and possess the ability to strike the ball effectively.

Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan (WK), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma/Vishnu Vinod, Nehal Wadhera, Tim David, Chris Jordan, Piyush Chawla, Akash Madhwal, Hrithik Shokeen
