Since MI has previously prevailed in the competition five times, they are fairly confident going into the game. Their batsmen have been in superb form, with Cameron Green of Australia blasting an outstanding century in the previous match. Rohit Sharma, the skipper, has also rediscovered his groove. However, their bowling division still has room for improvement, and the squad will seek to do so in order to improve their overall performance.
In the final group stage encounter between the two teams, LSG triumphed by a slim margin of five runs. This encounter suggests that the Eliminator match will also be hotly contested.
While MI has demonstrated their batting skills this season with four successful runs chases of over 200, Lucknow Super Giants have a respectable team. The Chepauk Stadium, on the other hand, is anticipated to offer a more difficult surface that will favor spin bowling, which benefits LSG. Although MI has a strong batting lineup, they will have a difficult time against spinners like Ravi Bishnoi and Krunal Pandya.
Cricket fans eagerly anticipate this important game as the excitement grows. Both teams have their strengths and weaknesses, and the outcome will depend on how well they carry out their game plans. Which team advances to the playoffs based on the outcome of this Eliminator game, while the losing team gets eliminated from the competition.

BETTING TIPS MI vs LSG
MI TO WIN
LSG and MI have already faced off against one another this season. On that occasion, LSG defeated MI for the third time, winning by a slim margin of only 5 runs.
However, there is a noticeable contrast in both teams’ current form. Three of LSG’s last five games have ended in losses, while MI has won four of those games. Although both teams may encounter difficult batting circumstances, MI has a stronger lineup with more dependable and in-form players. LSG will be in serious difficulty if they lose the early wickets of Stoinis and Pooran at a low cost. The forthcoming game is expected to be thrilling given the large stakes involved. However, we believe that MI will be in a better position to dominate the game against the hosts.
MI is more likely to triumph.
