In the IPL 2023 Eliminator on Wednesday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk) in Chennai, the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will square off. LSG had 17 points after 14 games and finished third in the league.
With 16 points from 14 games, the five-time champion Mumbai Indians (MI) placed fourth. While MI’s most recent match saw them defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by an eight-wicket margin, LSG had won their previous three games.
Let’s take a look at some players who can take the most wickets in the match:
Ravi Bishnoi: In the current iPL 2023, Ravi Bishnoi, a leg-spinner, leads his team in wickets taken. With an average of 22 points and a 7 point76 economy rate, he has taken 16 wickets in 14 games. Bishnoi’s two wickets for 26 runs against MI last week are anticipated to be aided by the spin-friendly Chennai field.
Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma were the openers he dismissed. Bishnoi has played against MI in seven games, taking nine wickets at an average of 20.33 and a 7.32 economy rate.
Krunal Pandya: The captain of the LSG is another talented spinner who will try to influence the outcome of the game. In 14 games, the left-arm pacer has taken nine wickets at an average of 30.55 and a 7.23 economy rate. In LSG’s most recent game against the Mumbai Indians (MI), Krunal opened the bowling for them. He bowled four effective overs, allowing just 27 runs to be scored during that time.
In three games against his former team, the left-arm spinner picked up three wickets at an economy rate of 6.20 and an average of 20.66. In the IPL 2023, seasoned leg-spinner Piyush Chawla hopes to build on his recent success. He has taken 20 wickets in his first 14 matches for an average of 21.10 and an economy rate of 7.81. He shares fourth place in the season so far for most wickets taken.
