Today’s IPL match between LSG and MI at Wankhede Stadium: The arena will host the league’s eighth match of the current 15th season. Check Pitch report for Lucknow vs Mumbai 2022 IPL match at Wankhede Stadium: LSG vs MI pitch report
At the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, the 37th match of the ongoing 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be contested between the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and the Mumbai Indians (MI).
After a promising start to the season, the LSG, headed by KL Rahul, has gone off the rails in recent matches, and has slid to fifth place in the points standings with four victories from seven games.
MI, on the other hand, is still searching for their first two points of the season, having lost all seven of their first matches in what has been their poorest season in IPL history.
With the Rohit Sharma-led team officially out of the competition, the five-time IPL winners are left with nothing but dignity to play for.
The LSG would play their third match of the season at the Wankhede, while MI would play their first match of the season at their principal home field.

LSG vs MI Wankhede Stadium pitch report today IPL match
Before the recent match between the Delhi Capitals (DC) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), the average first innings score at the Wankhede Stadium was 158 runs, the lowest of all the venues in the existing season.
However, both teams scored more than 200 runs in the aforementioned match, with RR posting the highest first-innings total in IPL 2022.
Expect the slow quality of the pitch to aid the spinners, especially throughout the middle overs, as the red soil pitches acquire a tendency to tear-up with each consecutive match on the now-used ones.
The firm, fresh ball, on the other hand, would help the seamers early on, as it did with the previous two pitches in Mumbai this season.
As a result, if the bowlers make full advantage of the circumstances, estimate a total of about 160 runs to be a decent enough total after batting first.
