IPL 2023: Mumbai Indians Thrashed Out LSG After A Huge Win In the Eliminator
Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023

The Mumbai Indians advanced to a Qualifier-2 matchup with the Gujarat Titans thanks to Madhwal’s impressive stats of 3.3-5-5 and three freak run-outs, which gave Lucknow an 81-run thrashing.

In order to restrict the space available for the batters, Madhwal bowled quickly and straightly, either attacking the stumps or veering just wide of the off stump.

As a specialist in yorkers who was doing a good job of trying to fill the void left by Jasprit Bumrah and Jofra Archer’s absence, Akash Madhwal entered this match.

By the time the match was over, he had however demonstrated just how deadly a back-of-the-length seam bowler he is as well. On Wednesday night, the 29-year-old from Uttarakhand conjured up an inspired spell and his first fifer to con the Lucknow Super Giants and end their season on a relatively subdued note.

In order to plant doubts that ultimately led to wickets, he got a good bounce and kept beating the outside edge. The game’s unquestionable turning point was his consecutive dismissals of dangerman Nicholas Pooran and Ayush Badoni, who he cleaned up.

In terms of running between the wickets, LSG had a terrible day. Three significant blunderings resulted in the return of crucial batters like Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, and Krishnappa Gowtham. They suffered a humiliating 81-run defeat in an attempt to reach 182, their self-inflicted injury proving to be their downfall.

The MI innings was the first of two halves earlier. The top four batsmen for Mumbai Indians displayed some fearless batting


In the first half, helped by what appeared to be an unusually slow Chepauk track.  Contrarily, in the second half, Naveen-ul-Haq demonstrated confidence in the inherent qualities of these surfaces by employing a variety of slower deliveries to deceive MI batters and keep denting them on a regular basis.

A good total was ultimately achieved by MI thanks to Nehal Wadhera’s creative slogging in the 20th over on a pitch that became more and more challenging to bat on.

Ishan Kishan’s square-cut boundary off the first ball of the match immediately indicated MI’s approach. Despite the early losses of Ishan and captain Rohit Sharma, Cameron Green and Suryakumar Yadav continued to play aggressively and did not appear to have any trouble hitting the line after the opening pair had left.

Green and Surya were able to play the kinds of fluid strokes they would have at Wankhede because the ball came onto the bat much better than it did the previous night.

Surya struck a few daring pulls over the wicketkeeper’s head for six while Green drove and cut with aplomb through the off-side. When Naven-ul-Haq dealt MI a double blow in the eleventh over, they both appeared to be leading MI to a challenging total.

First, he returned Surya with a leg-cutter that lacked any pace, causing the batter to misdirect a drive too long off. The pacer then misled Green by bowling an off-cutter that swung back in to rattle his stumps.

The dismissals slowed down the innings and put LSG squarely back into the contest. Tim David holed out too far on off a high Yash Thakur full toss as Tilak Varma and Tim David took some time to gather themselves.

As the game-changing replacement for Surya, Nehal Wadhera (23 off 12 balls) entered the fray. He did a commendable job, finding the fence three times in the final over to all but seal Lucknow’s defeat.
