Lucknow Super Giants will take on the Mumbai Indians in an exciting fixture at the Wankhede Stadium in Match 37 of IPL 2022. Both teams have had contrasting results so far with the Lucknow SuperGiants losing their previous game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore by a close margin, however, their overall campaign has been really good so far. With four wins in seven games, LSG is placed fourth in the points table and is unlikely to make changes to their playing XI.
On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians continued their dismal form this season after losing their previous encounter against the Chennai Super Kings. With seven losses in seven games, the Rohit Sharma-led side is almost out of contention for a spot in the playoffs and they will be looking to get back to winning ways to salvage some pride. The Mumbai side did put up a fight in their previous game and hence they are expected to go in with the same playing XI.
Match: Lucknow Super Giants vs Mumbai Indians, Match 37, IPL 2022
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Date & Time: April 24, 7:30 PM
The previous game (RR vs DC) at the Wankhede Stadium was a high-scoring thriller and it went right down into the last over to decide the winner of the game. The wicket looks a belter to bat on and hence, any score could be chased down with the short boundaries as well. The captain that wins the toss will be looking to bowl first on the wicket as chasing is relatively easy on the ground unless a huge score is posted.
Sunny conditions will give way to clear night skies with highs of 35 degrees in this game in Dubai.

PROBABLE TOP PERFORMERS
PROBABLE BEST BATTER OF THE MATCH: SURYAKUMAR YADAV
Suryakumar Yadav has been one of the positives for Mumbai Indians despite their losing streak and the right-hander got off to a start in the previous game with a 21-ball 32, but failed to capitalize on it. The 31-year-old has got all the shots in the book and has accumulated 232 runs in five games for the Mumbai Indians already. He will be looking to make a big score which will be vital to the plans for Mumbai’s success.
PROBABLE BEST BOWLER OF THE MATCH: JASPRIT BUMRAH
Jasprit Bumrah meanwhile hasn’t had much of an impact in the wickets column for the Mumbai Indians, but certainly, he has been leading the bowling attack for his side with some excellent lines and lengths. Bumrah has taken just four wickets this season in the seven games he played despite having a decent economy rate and Mumbai would be hoping that he can get his name in the wickets column quite often.
AS per previous matches Lucknow Super Giants will most likely win the next match. Till now LSG has managed to play well, and MI has not won any match so they might lose again after the consecutive defeats.
As for Points Table, Lucknow Super Giants is at 4th place whereas Mumbai Indians are at last place.
