History

Team News And Tournament So Far

Mumbai Indians  

Mumbai Indians have had a disastrous start to the IPL 2022 season, losing all 7 matches they have played so far.

The five-time Indian Premier League (IPL) winners, had received good news in the form of ace batsman Suryakumar Yadav's comeback from rehabilitation. Yadav, who missed the first two IPL games against Rajasthan Royals(RR) and Delhi Capitals (DC), has made a comeback to the team and while he has been their top batsman so far, the team has struggled overall.

Daniel Sams proved to be quite expensive in MI's first game. He conceded 57 runs in four overs and was a major factor for the team's loss in their first game. Riley Meredith, Fabian Allen, or Jaydev Unadkat might take his spot in the starting XI.

Tilak Varma showed off his abilities in the first game against DC, scoring a critical 22 runs off 15 deliveries, and he was also solid against Rajasthan Royals, scoring a brilliant 61 off just 33 balls, studded with 5 sixes.

Despite encouraging individual performances, Mumbai have lost 7 out of 7 matches, in what is clearly their worst ever start to a season. 

MI Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Dewald Brevis, Kieron Pollard, Fabian Allen, Tymal Mills, Jasprit Bumrah, Jaydev Unadkat, Basil Thampi.

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow Super Giants threatened to become the first team in IPL 2022 to defend a target, but late blows from Gujarat Titans batsmen David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, ensured that the clash of the new teams was won by Gujarat Titans in their first match.

They lost as a result of some strange captaincy from KL Rahul, who stuck with spinners against two aggressive hitters despite the fact that it made it harder for the slower bowlers. Mohammed Shami, the man of the match, took three wickets in three overs with the new ball. Deepak Hooda and Ayush Badoni struck half-centuries to bail Lucknow Super Giants out of trouble and give their bowlers something to work with after KL Rahul was dismissed for a golden duck.

LSG bounced back brilliantly in their second and third matches however, and earned their first ever IPL wins with a solid performance overall. 

Lucknow's primary fast bowler recruit Mark Wood was hurt during England's current tour of the West Indies and has been ruled out of the IPL 2022. Andrew Tye has been named as his formal successor. Marcus Stoinis, the all-rounder for the Lucknow Super Giants, was in Pakistan for the white-ball series against the hosts but is now back. 

LSG defeated DC in a crunch match with an assured performance, and were battling for top spot in the IPL standings with 3 wins in 5 matches, after losing their previous match by a very narrow margin of only 3 runs. However, they have lost 2 of their last 3 matches, and are now stuck at 4th place on the table. 

LSG Probable XI : KL Rahul (captain), Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Andrew Tye, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi.

Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction

To Win The Match

Both these teams have equal odds of 1.90 each to win this match, which is surprising considering MI haven't won a single match so far while LSG have 4 wins in 7 matches. 

Top Team Batsman

Mumbai Indians have a brilliant opening pair and both of them are the favourites to be their top scorers, with Ishan Kishan having odds of 3.25 and Rohit Sharma’s odds being 3.00.

KL Rahul and Quinton De Kock are the expected favourites from LSG to be the top scorers, with odds of 2.87 and 3.60 respectively. Rahul scored a century the first time these two sides met. The versatile Manish Pandey is 6.00 to be LSG’s top scorer in this match.  

Highest Opening Partnership

Both teams are equal favourites at 1.80 to have the highest opening partnership as Rohit and Ishan Kishan are considered as one of the best opening pairs in the league. While De Kock and Rahul are also a top opening pair. 

Top Team Bowler

Jasprit Bumrah is the clear favourite from MI to be their top bowler with odds of 3.25, while Tymal Mills had a great outing in the previous match and has odds of 3.75.

Former Delhi Capitals’ pacer Avesh Khan is the LSG favourite to be the top bowler, at 3.50. He is followed by Dushmanta Chameera at 3.75.

Total Runs In The Match

Odds of there being more than 341.5 runs in this match are 1.83, as per 10cric. This seems highly achievable as both these teams have some brilliant batsmen and have scored plenty of runs this season.

Individual Player Betting

  • Suryakumar Yadav to score more than 24.5 runs has odds of 1.83 , which is a tempting bet as he is in incredible form.. KL Rahul to score more than 29.5 runs has odds of 1.83, which is arguably the safest bet in this match as he is LSG’s primary batsman and also scored a century against MI earlier this season.
  • MI to hit the most sixes has brilliant odds of 1.90, which can be tempting with Yadav back in the team and traditional big hitters Rohit, Ishan and Pollard all ready and waiting. Dewald Brevis alone hit 5 sixes in one match. LSG to hit the most sixes has odds of 2.15, which is understandable as they have several players who can clear the ropes. KL Rahul, De Kock, Jason Holder and Krunal Pandya all are known for their big hits
  • Avesh Khan to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.55, while Bumrah to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.00, as this promises to be a clash of these fiery pacers.
