MI vs LSG IPL 2024 Match Up: Top 5 Player Battles to Watch Out For

Lucknow Super Giants are virtually out of the playoffs race as they have to achieve an improbable equation to stay alive in the contest. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians have already been eliminated from the tournament and they will like to finish the season with a win in front of their home crowd. Meanwhile, in this post, we will take a look at the top five player battles to watch out for in the MI vs LSG contest.

MI vs LSG Top 5 Player Battles

1 – Rohit Sharma vs Mohsin Khan

Matches 3 (T20)
Runs 10
Balls 9
Outs 1

Rohit Sharma struggles a bit in front of the left-arm pacer with the new ball and Mohsin Khan has the ability to trouble the Hitman with his left-arm angle. Mohsin already dismissed Rohit in the earlier meeting between MI and LSG this season and he will look to repeat the same.

2 – KL Rahul vs Piyush Chawla

Matches 4 (T20)
Runs 27
Balls 14
Outs 1

Piyush Chawla could be a good option against KL Rahul as he takes time to settle in against the spinners early in his innings. Furthermore, the veteran leggie has already dismissed Rahul once in four meetings of the IPL.

3 – Suryakumar Yadav vs Ravi Bishnoi

Matches 7 (T20)
Runs 39
Balls 32
Outs 3

Suryakumar Yadav usually likes to dominate the bowlers but Ravi Bishnoi has the upper hand in this rivalry so far. The leg-spinner has already dismissed SKY 3 times in 7 meetings, giving away only 39 runs off 32 deliveries.

4 – Hardik Pandya vs Naveen ul Haq

Matches 2 (T20)
Runs 7
Balls 8
Outs 1

Naveen ul Haq is bowling in the powerplay and at the death for Lucknow Super Giants. Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya has been batting in the middle order for Mumbai Indians. The two could face each other at the death and the Afghanistan pacer has managed to contain the Indian all-rounder so far. In 2 meetings, Naveen has dismissed Hardik Pandya once already.

5 – Nicholas Pooran vs Gerald Coetzee

Matches 3 (T20)
Runs 21
Balls 13
Outs 0

Nicholas Pooran has scored runs consistently for the LSG in the IPL 2024 and he is their main asset at the death. Meanwhile, Gerald Coetzee is the second-best pacer for the Mumbai-based franchise this season. However, Nicholas Pooran has managed to negotiate the threat of the Proteas pacer so far by scoring 21 runs off 13 deliveries. Gerald Coetzee is a fierce competitor and it is going to be an interesting battle between the two aggressive cricketers.
