Preview 

It is the final game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season for two teams who have entirely different objectives in mind. Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will witness its troubled season come to an end as the fans will want a glimpse of their favourite stars one final time this season. 

Mumbai Indians (MI) just have one aim in mind and that is to win the game and move above Punjab Kings. The former champions are currently last in the table and will want to avoid the embarrassment in what has been a controversial season already. 

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) are more or less out of the reckoning for a place in the playoffs. They still have a mathematical chance if they beat Mumbai by a huge margin and also hope that RCB and SRH lose their final games of the season.

Top players for MI vs LSG Dream 11 Match 

Top Players – Mumbai Indians 

Tilak Varma – Mumbai Indians and their season would have been a complete disaster if not for Tilak Varma with the bat. The youngster has been in great form this year yet again and has been at the forefront of scoring runs. With just one game left to play this year. Tilak Varma will want to end the season with a terrific knock against their home fans. 

Jasprit Bumrah – Just like Tilak Varma with the bat, Jasprit Bumrah has been a massive part of Mumbai Indians with the ball. The 30-year-old has been phenomenal with the ball in hand and has bowled with pace and accuracy. It is a good sign for the Indian team as Bumrah will be a key part of the team during the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup

Top Players – Lucknow Super Giants 

Nicholas Pooran – One of the best T20 batters with the ability to dominate the attacks with his big-hitting. Nicholas Pooran was a part of Mumbai Indians once but didn’t get many chances to prove his worth. With the Wankhede Stadium reputed to be one of the tall-scoring grounds, one can expect Pooran to show his skills in what is most probably his final game of the campaign. 

KL Rahul – It has been a difficult season for the Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul. While his own batting form has been great, his teams’ performance has been a huge let down. KL Rahul though will want to end the season on a positive note and it comes against an opponent that he has had major success against. 

MI vs LSG Must Picks for Dream 11 Cricket

Suryakumar Yadav – Mumbai’s ace batter hasn’t had a great season but his highlight of the campaign came at this very venue. Suryakumar Yadav scored a memorable century against Sunrisers Hyderabad to not only help this team win the game but also signal his return to form. Both the batter and the fans of Mumbai Indians will want an encore on Friday night. 

Marcus Stoinis – The Australian star has been one of the key players for Lucknow Super Giants this year. His century against Chennai Super Kings will go down in history as one of the greatest innings ever played in IPL. Marcus Stoinis will want to end the season with yet another good performance before leaving India for national duties.

MI vs LSG Risky Captaincy Choices 

Hardik Pandya – IPL 2024 will be considered a major disappointment for Hardik Pandya. The 30-year-old has been in the eye of the storm ever since he has made his return to Mumbai Indians and his captaincy too hasn’t exuded too much confidence. 

Quinton De Kock – The South African was once a key part of Mumbai Indians for a few seasons. After his release he moved to Lucknow where he has had a mixed season with the bat during the IPL 2024 season. After a strong start with the bat, De Kock saw his form desert him and soon was benched before making his way back into the team in the last match. 

Players you should avoid

Rohit Sharma – It has been a shocking reversal of fortunes with the bat for Rohit Sharma. The 37-year-old had a great start to the season and even scored a century. The sharp decline has made fans nervous considering that he is set to lead India in the T20 World Cup in a few weeks. 

Yash Thakur – The young pacer from Vidarbha grabbed headlines with his fifer during early phase of the tournament. From there the performance graph of Yash Thakur has been declining. Wankhede has a reputation for being a bowler’s nightmare and Yash Thakur will have to bowl really well to leave unscathed.
