Hardly anything goes well for the IPL’s most successful Mumbai Indians in this cash-rich edition of the tournament. They have lost seven games in a row and set an unexpected record of losing most foreign matches at the start of the season – 7. Rohit Sharma-led team will face Lucknow Super Giants next in IPL match 2022 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.
LSG’s first season in the Indian Premier League has been a pretty good one so far. They have won four of their seven matches so far and will be looking to achieve some consistency.
However, they are losing 18 times against RCB. The team led by KL Rahul have beaten MI 18 times in the previous encounter, which is likely to give them confidence.
Their bowling attack led by Avesh Khan and Dushmantha Chameera will want to exploit the intimidating form of MI openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan.
In terms of MI, they desperately need a win. Whatever mathematical chance they have to make it to the playoffs, depends on whether they can beat LSG comprehensively on Monday.
The match between Mumbai Indians vs Lucknow Super Giants IPL 2022 will take place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Temperatures in Mumbai on Sunday are forecast to be around 29-36 degrees Celsius. Thankfully, rain won’t spoil a sport. Wind speed in the evening can be up to 45 km/h.
