Lucknow Super Giants are coming here after losing their match against Rajasthan Royals. However, the KL Rahul-led team will be looking to bounce back. For Lucknow, Quinton de Kock has been the star batter as he has scored 188 runs for the team and besides him, Deepak Hooda has also scored 155 runs in 5 matches. The young sensation Ayush Badoni has also performed well for them and hence the team relies on him for finishing. But the team will be looking for KL Rahul, Marcus Stoinis, Jason Holder, and Krunal Pandya to perform well too. In bowling, Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi are the star performers for them.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians heavily rely on Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Verma in the batting as Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard haven’t done much. Moreover, the young lad “Baby AB” Dewald Brevis has performed well for them in the last two matches and the team will be hoping for big innings from him. However, in the bowling department, apart from Jasprit Bumrah, every other bowler has struggled to take wickets. Tymal Mills has performed in bits and pieces and hence the team will be hoping for a better performance from him. 

Delhi Capitals will be entering the match with 4 points to their name in 4 games. They are placed at the seventh position in the points table. However, on the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore are placed at sixth position and have 6 points in 5 games that they have played. For both the teams, this match will be an important one now.
