MI vs LSG Prediction - Apr 16, 2022

We have seen many of miracles happen in the game of cricket over the years and Mumbai Indians have been involved in a number of those. They did a spectacular job to qualify in 2014 despite losing five matches on a trot in that season and then went on to win the title next season wherein they lost four on the trot.

Having lost all of their first five matches, Mumbai Indians will need yet another miracle to qualify from here. Before that, however, their focus will be on getting off the mark as soon as possible in the tournament. They have a difficult assignment coming up next as they take on Lucknow Super Giants in a match that is super-important to win for both these sides.

Lucknow Super Giants too are coming off an embarrassing loss in their last match and will be keen to bounce back to the winning ways. Both sides are expected to come out hard at each other in what is expected to be a cracker of a contest. The match between MI and LSG is to be played on 16th April 2022 at Broubourne Stadium, Mumbai.

MI vs LSG Team Previews

Mumbai Indians

Not many would have imagined Mumbai Indians to be in such a situation even after they had a disastrous auction. Their vulnerabilities were apparent after the auction was over and if anything, those vulnerabilities have only been exposed in the five matches they have played so far.

From a total of five matches played, Mumbai Indians have failed to win any with almost all of their losses coming in on account of poor bowling. As it currently stands on the ladder, they are placed right at the bottom of the ladder with zero points coupled with a rather poor net run rate of -1.072. They have come close on a number of occasions but failure to close the crunch moments have kept them at bay in almost all matches.

The blame of Mumbai's poor form up until now is also to be attributed to the lack of returns from their senior players apart from the auction going wrong. It was a side build with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, and Ishan Kishan at core but none of them have fired to their potential yet. Suryakumar Yadav, another core member of the side has played only three games and although he has looked at his fluent best, there's only so much he can do.

Despite poor show up until now, Mumbai Indians would be looking forward to this upcoming match, especially because of the way they played in the last one. It was another occasion of failing to seize the crunch situation but the way the likes of Tilak Verma and Dewald Brevis batted should instill a lot of belief among the players.

On paper, Mumbai Indians still appear to have an excellent batting unit, especially with Tilak Verma and Dewald Brevis firing. It is their bowling that needs to make amends as quickly as possible. Apart from Jasprit Bumrah, no one has really managed to keep the brakes on the scoring in all the matches gone so far. Largely for that reason, we expect a change in their bowling lineup with Riley Meredith coming in for Basil Thampi.

All in all, Mumbai Indians have a good side that can beat any other side on their day. All they need to do is to close out the crunch moments and they will need their experienced pros to step up. If that happens, Mumbai Indians will be a a tough side to crack, even despite being in the form they are in.

Lucknow Super Giants

Led by KL Rahul, Lucknow Super Giants have had an eventful tournament up until now. At one point in the competition, they were running for the top-spot on the ladder but with a loss in their last match, they have dropped down from the top-four. Having said that, a win here will bring them back into the contention and that is exactly what they will be aiming for.

As it currently stands on the points table, Lucknow Super Giants are placed at the fifth spot with three wins from five matches, aggregating six points. They have a decent net run rate of 0.174, which is keeping them above a couple of other teams who too have six points.

They are coming off a disappointing loss at the hands of Rajasthan Royals and will want to do a lot better, especially with the bat. It has not been rare that LSG have found themselves in trouble with the bat and that is something that they would want to fix in this upcoming match. While the likes of Quinton de Kock, Deepak Hooda, and Ayush Badoni have done well, they would be looking for more contribution from their skipper.

On the bowling front, however, the Super Giants look pretty settled with the likes of Avesh Khan, K Gowtham, and Ravi Bishnoi doing well. Having said that, their fourth and fifth bowling options have not been consistent enough. The return of Marcus Stoinis to the playing eleven does help them with the balance, adding to their strength in both departments.

All in all, Lucknow Super Giants have a good side but they have not yet executed their plans well. They are yet to hit their peak potential and would want to do that as soon as possible with the important phase in the tournament coming up. If they can do that in this upcoming match, Mumbai Indians will certainly have their work cut out.

MI vs LSG Toss Prediction

Chasing has been the order of the day in the tournament and that has had a lot to do with the fact that most matches have been day-night games. With the dew not being a factor here today, the captains will be tempted to bat first. Having said that, the surface is unlikely to change over the course of forty overs and batting second does offer that wee bit of advantage to the side chasing. For that reason, expect the captain winning the toss to field first.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

Brabourne Stadium has offered one of the better batting surfaces in what has already been a batting-friendly tournament. We have seen a string of high-scoring matches here and that would be again on the cards. This is a day game and with temperatures beginning to soar already, fitness will be tested. Although batting will get easier towards the back-end of the second innings, toss really shouldn't be a major factor given that the impact of dew will be minimal. Keeping the recent scores here into consideration and the dimensions of the ground, the team batting first would want to put a total of at least 185 runs on the board.

MI vs LSG Betting Tips

This is an important match for both these sides, albeit for different reasons, and arguably more so for Mumbai Indians. Mumbai Indians have always been slow-starters and they would now be desperate to get going. While Mumbai Indians have not done well, they are still just a win away from getting their mojo back. Lucknow Super Giants have blown hot and cold and would want to bring some consistency to their campaign. While Lucknow Super Giants have a far better side based on the form, Mumbai Indians do appear to have an edge as far as experience is concerned. Besides, they are back to Mumbai after a string of unfavorable results at Pune. Keeping the odds and the on-paper combinations of the two sides, we are tempted to bet on a Mumbai Indians win. Back MI to rack their first win of the tournament here in this match.

Bonus Cricket Bets

    Highest Total at the end of 1st Six Overs - Mumbai Indians



Even though Mumbai Indians have struggled to rack up huge totals in the tournament thus far, it would be fair to say that they have not lacked intent. In the powerplay as well, the pair of Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma have looked to play their shots. Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, have been just a wee bit circumspect in the powerplay. Considering how the two sides have approached the first six overs respectively, it makes all the sense to bet on Mumbai Indians to have a highest total at the end of the powerplay.

  1. Leon


    Ravi Bishnoi - Total Wickets - Over 1.5



Most teams have preferred to play Ravi Bishnoi out but given the situation Mumbai Indians are in, they would want to make each over count, if they end up batting first. Ravi Bishnoi has a terrific record against most batsmen from Mumbai's camp and will be fancying his chances. Considering that and the form he is in, a bet on Bishnoi to pick up at least a couple of wickets seems to be a pretty lucrative proposition.

  1. BetBarter


    Total Runs - Match - Over 319.5



Brabourne Stadium has been one of the highest scoring venues in the current edition of IPL thus far and the trend is likely to continue for at least some foreseeable future. Although the boundaries here are large, batsmen do get value for their shots, owing to fast outfield and true surface. Also, the ball just flies off the bat. Considering those factors, a bet on match total to exceed 319 runs seems to be a pretty lucrative proposition.

  1. BetBarter


    Rohit Sharma - To Score a Fifty - Yes



Even though Rohit Sharma has not gotten a big knock to his name yet, he hasn't looked uncomfortable in the middle. We believe that a big innings for Sharma is just around the corner and today might well be the day for the skipper to step up. Bet on Rohit Sharma to score a fifty here.

  1. Leon


    Deepak Hooda - Total Runs - Over 21.5



Deepak Hooda has perhaps been the only man from the Super Giants' camp who has looked good in all the outings he has had. He generally bats at the fourth position and is likely to have ample time to get set before taking risks. Bet on Deepak Hooda to score a personal total of at least 22 runs.
