After losing the first match, LSG built a 3-match winning streak before going down to Rajasthan Royals in their last game by just 3 runs.

Mumbai lost their previous match to the Punjab Kings by 12 runs, failing to chase down 199 despite being in a good position at one stage; the lack of a seventh batsman hurt them to close out the chase.

Here, we bring you the best fantasy cricket tips for this exciting contest:

Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai

Brabourne has been a high-scoring venue this season. DC putting up 215 vs KKR, Tewatia helping GT chase down 190, LSG chasing 211 and DC chasing 178. But, dew won’t impact this game since this is a day match. Fans should expect an even contest.

LSG news and predicted XI:

Marcus Stoinis made a strong start to his season, smashing 38 runs off 17 balls and almost pulled off the chase vs RR while Krishnappa Gowtham showcased his off-spin quality by picking a couple of wickets.

Lucknow are expected to play the same eleven as in their previous game.

LSG predicted XI: KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Krishnappa Gowtham, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan

MI news and predicted XI:

Mumbai Indians went in with only 6 specialist batters and 5 bowlers vs PBKS and regretted their decision. It’s been still baffling that the likes of Tim David and Fabian Allen were on the bench; one of them is likely to come in for Thampi or Unadkat. Fast bowler Riley Meredith can also make his debut for MI.

Expect changes in Rohit Sharma’s team.

MI predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Tim David/Fabian Allen/Sanjay Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Murugan Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills

Fantasy cricket tips: KL Rahul averages 66 against MI in 14 matches with 5 fifties and 1 century. MI haven’t been threatening in the powerplay, so Rahul is a good captaincy choice for your fantasy side; they also don’t have any off-spinner making Quinton de Kock another safe choice.

Gowtham could be tasked to bowl to Ishan Kishan for his favourable match-up. Dushmantha Chameera has dismissed Rohit Sharma 6 times in 9 matches they have faced each other.

Based on the above fantasy cricket tips, here is the best XI for the MI-LSG match on Dream XI:

Wicket-keeper: KL Rahul (C), Quinton de Kock

Batsman: Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma

All-rounder: Jason Holder (VC), Dewald Brevis

Bowler: Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Jasprit Bumrah
