In LSG’s playing XI, Mayank Yadav is back, and Ashton Turner has replaced Quinton de Kock.

Following consecutive defeats in their current IPL 2024 campaign, the Mumbai Indians’ prospects of qualifying for the postseason this year were considerably diminished. And they would find themselves in the same scenario as Royal Challengers Bengaluru if they lose tonight against the KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. Despite their dearth of spin alternatives, Mumbai appeared to be one of those clubs that would definitely make the playoffs before the season began. They possessed the strongest batting and speed group on paper. However, MI is in a risky situation due to the injuries to Jason Behrendorff and Dilshan Madushanka, as well as the poor play of their substitutes, Luke Wood and Kwena Maphaka, as well as Nuwan Thushara.Gerald Coetzee has also been quite unreliable with the ball, even though he has 12 wickets in eight games. Their lone exceptional bowler has been Jasprit Bumrah, who has taken 14 wickets at an economy rate of well under seven.

Although Lucknow is also coming off a loss in their previous game, they are favorites to cause Mumbai problems because they will be playing at home and have the support of Mayank Yadav.

Rahul, nevertheless, will be the main focus of the IPL 2024 match in Lucknow as well as the playoff scenarios for the two clubs. Before the BCCI releases the squad for the T20 World Cup, the captain of the LSG will likely have one final chance to secure the position of second wicketkeeper in the Indian side.

Rahul has long been the subject of debate due to his strike-rate in the shortest format. Even with the benefit of field limitations during the Powerplay, Rahul has consistently started the IPL slowly. But this season, the LSG skipper has been able to shift gears. He scored 378 runs at a strike rate of 144.27 in the 2024 season, which is still less than Rishabh Pant’s (160.60) and Sanju Samson’s (161.08) totals.

While return man Pant has virtually guaranteed the first wicketkeeper position for the World Cup competition in the Caribbean islands and the USA in June with some impressive batting and sharp work behind the stumps, Samson has also established a strong case for himself with quick-hitting match-winning runs for the Rajasthan Royals.

In such a situation, Rahul must play with greater fearlessness and take advantage of the field constraints in order to assist his team reach the 200-run mark, which has become the standard in this season, as well as to improve his chances of being selected for the Indian team.
