This is probably the last chance for MI in IPL 2022 to go forward in the tournament. They have done it already and they will look to mark their first win of this season when they will take on LST on 16 April in the 26th match of the tournament. Mumbai Indians are not able to win any single game in the first five match of IPL 2022 and there are many weakness in their team combination. Not only their batting is a complete failure but the bowling too is very poor throughout the tournament so far.
LSG team who is playing in IPL for the first time are performing much better as they have lost just 2 of the their first five matches. Their team looks totally balanced with equally good performances from batsmen and bowlers. Although they faced a defeat against RR in the last match but still they have potential to make a comeback with a win in this match against MI.
Mumbai Indians are facing tough challenges in both batting and bowling department. Their bowling is only dependent on Jasprit Bumrah as no other bowler has been able to provide any support to him so far.
