For the Mumbai Indians, Hardik Pandya wins the toss and chooses to bowl first. In the 67th match of the 2024 Indian Premier League, the Mumbai Indians will host the Lucknow Super Giants at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
The Mumbai Indians (MI) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), two teams eager to cap off their seasons with victories, will square off at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday as the IPL season draws to an end. Despite the fact that neither team can make the playoffs, they still want to take some positives away from a disappointing season.

MI had an a difficult season under new captain Hardik Pandya, which ended their hopes of making the playoffs early. With just four victories in 13 games, the club has struggled and is in danger of finishing last. LSG’s circumstances are equally dire as their chances of making the playoffs have been seriously damaged by three straight losses, which have also negatively impacted their net run rate.
With a net run rate of -0.787, LSG is now ranked seventh and has an overwhelming job of surpassing Royal Challengers Bangalore, who have a healthier NRR of 0.387. The team’s inability to establish a rhythm following the captaincy change from Rohit Sharma to Pandya has drawn criticism.

Although MI’s batting lineup has struggled as a whole, the bowling unit hasn’t been ignited by Jasprit Bumrah’s excellence, which has yielded 20 wickets. Important players like Pandya, Rohit Sharma, Bumrah, and Suryakumar Yadav will be intently watched as they try to improve India’s chances in the next T20 World Cup.
The recent struggles of Rohit Sharma at the bat and Pandya’s lackluster performances have made MI’s problems worse. Yadav, on the other hand, has been a bright spot this season, putting up three fifty-five runs and a century.

Despite KL Rahul’s outstanding run-scoring exploits and Nicholas Pooran’s late-order blitzes, LSG’s bowling department’s overall shortcomings have been a clear problem. Both sides will be motivated to complete their seasons on a high note and save some pride as they get ready for their final matchup.
