Marcus Stoinis could be pushed lower down the order if Mumbai Indians play and use Chris Jordan in the slog overs. Not only has Jordan never managed to get the better of Stoinis in T20s, but has also conceded 125 runs in 52 balls against the Australian all-rounder.
Probable XI: Quinton de Kock, Kyle Mayers, Prerak Mankad, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Krunal Pandya, Ayush Badoni, K Gowtham, Yudhvir Charak/Yash Thakur, Ravi Bishnoi, Amit Mishra, Avesh Khan

He could be up for a challenge against LSG’s four-man spin attack in the middle overs.
