Lucknow Super Giants will face off against Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2023 Eliminator at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday. While the winner of the match will take on Gujarat Titans in Qualifier 2 on Friday, the team that loses will be eliminated from the tournament.
Lucknow, which finished third on the points table, is unbeaten against Mumbai in the tournament. The last time the two teams met, pacer Mohsin Khan’s brilliant last over with the ball handed Super Giants a thrilling five-run win in Lucknow.
LSG VS MI HEAD-TO-HEAD IN IPL

LSG OVERALL IPL RECORD IN CHENNAI
Mumbai has a mixed record in Chennai. While the five-time champion has won as many games as it has lost at the venue, it will take heart from the fact that it had a five-match unbeaten streak against home team Chennai Super Kings between 2012 and 2019. Mumbai has also won two playoffs matches at the venue.
MI OVERALL IPL RECORD IN CHENNAI
The toss is unlikely to be a decisive factor considering that teams batting first and second have won an equal share of games at the venue. However, since the pitch has slowed down in the second innings of late, teams could chose to bat first and strangulate the opposition with spinners.
