The Mumbai Indians will be taking on the Lucknow Super Giants in the 2nd Play-off match of Indian Premier league 2023. The match will be played at the MA Chidambaram Cricket Stadium, Chepauk in Chennai, starting at 7:30 PM IST.
The common factor between Lucknow Super Giants and The Mumbai Indians is the consistency of being inconsistent in the tournaments. As far as the Lucknow Super Giants go their bowling has been reasonably fine. it’s their batting which has been a problem area. They have performed in a few matches but have not been able to string together consistent performances throughout the tournament.
Similarly the Same issue has been persistent with the Mumbai Indians. Their batters have been underperforming in the first phase of the tournament. it’s only now in the final stages of the tournament that their batting line up has shown some spark. The bowling in the middle of the tournament was also disappointing and that has been the reason why they have not been able to choke the runs of the opposition.
But now all leaving behind what happened earlier in the tournament has to be forgotten by both the teams and start with a new vigour. Playing their A game in order to win this match, is the only appropriate approach. If they slip here, the impact will stay forever. So get ready for a pot boiler of a game, sit back, relax and enjoy the last few moments of the Indian Premier League 2023.
