- CHASE BEGINS -

An excellent innings from LSG captain K. L. Rahul, whose unbeaten 103 is surely among the best innings he has played in the IPL. And what an occasion to score the ton: it's his 100th IPL game as well. He was given good support by Quinton de Kock and Manish Pandey. Stoinis and Hooda indulged in some lusty hitting as well. It was tough going for MI's bowlers, all of whom - barring Bumrah and Tilak Varma (one over) gave away runs at 8 per over or more. Misfields from MI's fielders didn't help.

"Satisfied with the score," says Pandey. "The wicket's very good, bowling good lines and hitting the good areas will be important."

Join us for the chase in a bit.

LSG 199/3 in 20 overs: Last over. Unadkat to bowl it. A single. Then a full delivery on leg-stump fetches Hooda two runs as there's a misfield by the fielder at deep midwicket. Full again, hit to long-on for a single. And out! Against the run of play. A short delivery to Hooda, who tries to play the upper cut but edges the ball to the wicketkeeper.

Yorker, dug out to midwicket for a single by Krunal Pandya. Last ball: well outside the off-stump, Rahul doesn't reach out to it, but it's not a wide! So it's an excellent final over from Unadkat. Total: 199.

LSG 195/3 in 19 overs: Oh what a shot! Short and wide, cut nicely to third man for a four! Single off the next delivery gives Hooda the strike, and he tees off! Slogs Tymal Mills for a six beyond long-on. It was a short delivery - slower ball. Tries to slog again, but instead manages to chip the ball over the head of the fielder at point. This runs away for a boundary too. Oh and a wide down the leg side. The wicketkeeper did well to stop that, or else it would have gone to the boundary. The batters pick up a single as there's a fumble.

Rahul cuts and it's a four! And brings up a 100! Keeps the strike with a single - leg byes.

LSG 173/3 in 18 overs: Rahul drills one to long-on for a single. Deepak Hooda, the new batter, is foxed by a slower delivery, but manages to tap the ball and run. Wide outside the off-stump to Rahul. Driven to long-off for a single. Full delivery, on middle and leg, hit away to deep middwicket for a single. Wide again, outside the off-stump. Half- volley on off-stump, driven hard to extra cover, who misfields, two runs are picked up. Rahul moves into the 90s. Hit to long-on for another single.

LSG 164/3 in 17 overs: Stoinis goes! Tries to go for a massive slog and mistimes it. The ball gains height but not distance. The fielder at mid-off - Rohit Sharma - pouches it. Yorker length, outside off-stmump, steered nicely to point for a four! There's a fielder at deep point and a fielder at deep cover - but neither could stop the ball. Short of a length, cuts for a single. A single again, this time through the leg side. Leg-stump half-volley is flicked away by Rahul to deep square leg for a single.

Marcus Stoinis c Rohit b Unadkat 10 (9b, 1x6)

LSG 155/2 in 16 overs: Bumrah is back. Stoinis drives straight but the ball hits the stumps at the non-strikers'end. No run. Slower delivery, defended. Full, Stoinis gets an inside edge and it misses the stumps - single. Dull delivery, dug out to midwicket for another single. Short of a length, outside off, steered to extra cover for a single. Full toss, tucked to deep midwicket for two runs. Five from the over.

TIME OUT

LSG 150/2 in 15 overs: Last over from Allen: Short and wide, and Rahul cuts it for another boundary! And a six! Short again, and pulled this time for a six to cow corner! Short of a length, outside off-stump, Rahul tries to play the late-cut, but can't put pat to ball. Single through deep midwicket. Short again, Stoinis pulls down the ground for a single. Outside the leg-stump to Rahul, turning in; Rahul plays the sweep well to pick up six more, this time through fine leg!

Expensive last over from Allen. Eighteen from it.

LSG 132/2 in 14 overs: M. Ashwin breaks the partnership! Bowls a full ball, on middle and leg stump. Pandey goes for a slog across the line and misses! Timber! The partnership was worth 72.  And the new batter Stoinis tees off! First ball! Pull, on leg-stump, it's a google, but Stoinis knows it, deposits the ball in the stands beyond long-on. Full on leg-stump, hit to lon-on for a single. Fooled by the pace of the ball, Stoiinis goes through his shot a bit too early, gets an edge, but the ball falls in no-man's land at mid-on. Single taken. Single to finish the over also.

LSG 124/1 in 12 overs: LSG Tymal Mills back into the attack. Yorker length delivery outside the off-stump, steered nicely to backward point for four runs! Excellent stroke from Rahul. Gets off strike with a single. Full, on middle stump, Pandey clears his front leg and carved the ball through cover-point for four more! Short, pulled to fine leg for four more! Past the short fine leg fielder. Full, on off-stump, driven down the ground for a single. Short again, and pulled again for four! This time it's Rahul. One bounce, into the boundary.

Expensive over.

LSG 106/1 in 12 overs: Bumrah is back into the attack. Dot ball to start off. Driven back to the bowler; it hits the boot and trickles to extra cover. Single picked up. On a good length,on leg stump, tucked away to deep square leg. And it doesn't quite go for a boundary, but it brings up the half-century for Rahul.  Two runs. A dot and a single. An appeal for lbw, turned down. Short, pulled away to deep midwicket for four runs! the fielder tries his best but can't prevent the boundary.

LSG 98/1 in 11 overs: Allen to bowl his third over. Single. Then Pandey drives the ball back to the bowler twice. Full delivery, but not overpitched, slapped, to long-on for a single. Two more singles to finish the over.

Allen has been economical so far in his spell.

LSG 94/1 in 10 overs: Unadkat to bowl his second over. Starts off with a short of a length delivery on leg-stump to Pandey, who defend. Pulled to deep square leg for a single. Flicked to the leg side for a single. Length ball, and slogged away for six! to cow corner! Just saw the length and teed off! What a shot from Rahul. Unadkat switches to around the wicket; bowls a good length delivery in the corridor - steered to point for no run. Last ball: short of a length, in the body, tucked to the leg side for a single.

LSG 84/1 in 9 overs: Full toss, and slogged away to cow corner for six! That was a poor delivery from Ashwin to Rahul. Driven to deep extra cover for a single. A googly: dabbed to short third man for no run. Short of a length, cut to point for no run. Full, on leg-stump, hit away to long-on for a single. Full, on off-stump, driven to deep extra cover for two runs.

LSG 74/1 in 8 overs: Allen continues. Two singles. Rahul on-drives to midwicket for a single. Then Pnadey drives through extra cover for two runs. Boundary! Short and wide, Pandey plays the late cut to collect a four through third man. He comes down the track, flicks - and a misfield! Bizarre! It goes through the legs of the fielder for four!

LSG 61/1 in 7 overs: Murugan Ashwin to bowl his second over. Starts off with a wide. Dot ball. Full, driven to long-off for a single by Pandey. Single again. Full delivery is on-driven to long-on for a single. Rahul tucks to midwicket for another single. Full toss, outside off-stump, driven to the fielder at cover.

LSG 57/1 in 6 overs: Fabian Allen (left-arm spin) to bowl his first over. Oh and another! De Kock plays the slog-sweep excellently. Collects a six through midwicket. And out! De Kock tries to play the reverse-sweep and pays the price for it, misses the ball and it's adjacent to the stumps. De Kock doesn't hang around and walks back. Wickets would have been úmpire's call'. New batter is Manish Pandey, he is off the mark with a boundary! Just drills a full delivery hard back down the ground. One run to deep midwicket to finsh the over.

Quinton de Kock lbw Fabian Allen 24 (13b, 4x4, 1x6)

LSG 46/0 in 5 overs: Tymal Mills into the attack now. Full, outside off-stump; Rahul drives through extra cover for four runs! It was in the air but in the gap. Defended. Short of a length, pulled to midiwicket for a single. On the leg-stump, de Kock can't put bat to ball, one leg bye. Short to Rahul, who attempts the pull shot, it's too fine: it's beyond the reach of the wicketkeeper as it travels to the boundary. That was gloved; quick delivery. Oh and a six! Short and wide, and Rahul cuts for six! That's a flat six.

LSG 30/0 in 4 overs: Bumrah into the attack. Rahul tucks to midwicket for no run. On a good length, on off-stump, defended from the crease.  On a good length, on middle-stump, tucked to midwicket again. Fuller, and it's flicked to deep midwicket for two runs. A similar delivery next up, it comes in sharply after pitching; takes the inside edge of the bat. A single through square leg to finish the over.

LSG 27/0 in 3 overs: M. Ashwin replaces Tilak Varma. Rahul tucks one to midwicket for a single. De Kock gets a half-volley and he swipes across the line for a boundary through midwicket. That went off the bat quick! Full again, and this time, it's swept to long leg for four more!  Full, on off-stump, driven to mid-off for a single. On a good-length, was it the googly? Steered to point for no run. Final delivery: full toss, on leg stump, flicked for a single.

Short and wide, cut away to point for a boundary by de Kock. Oh and an excellent follow-up! De Kock is beaten as he plays inside the line of a good length delivery that just goes over the stumps. And anouther four! Short and wide, and cut fiercely - this time through cover-point. Final delivery: driven back to the bowler.

LSG 6/0 in 1 over: Tilak Varma (right arm off-spin) to bowl the first over. First ball: full, outside off, driven to cover. Then slightly, short, it's pulled away to deep midwicket for four runs! A great effort by the fielder in the deep, who dives to stop the ball, but fails to prevent it from tricking over to the boundary paddings. Three more singles from the over.

1528 IST: The umpires walk out. MI in a huddle before the players walk out to the field, and LSG's openers K. L. Rahul and Quinton de Kock do too.

1520 IST: Rohit Sharma, it seems, prefers to chase. But is there a basis for it in terms of a pattern so far? It has lost twice bowling first, and thrice batting first. The closest was a 12-run loss to Punjab Kings.

MI has lost all five matches it's played so far, while LSG has won thrice, and lost twice, including its last game - a 10-run loss to Rajasthan Royals.

Here's the points table.

PLAYING XIs

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Fabian Allen, Jaydev Unadkat, Murugan Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills.

Lucknow Super Giants: K. L. Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni, Jason Holder, Krunal Pandya, Dushmantha Chameera, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi.

1500 IST: TOSS TIME - Rohit Sharma and K. L. Rahul, who open for India in Test matches, are in the middle for the toss. Rohit Sharma wins the toss and chooses to bowl. "Basics were missing in the last few matches, we need to keep it simple. We just need to play basic cricket which has been missing," Rohit says. Basil Thampi will have to miss out to accommodate Allen.

The energy is good within the team, Rahul says. One change for LSG: Manish Pandey is in for K. Gowtham.

1450 IST: PITCH REPORT - Batters would have to clear a longer distance in the diagonals than straight down the ground or square of the wicket, informs Graeme Swann in the pitch report. A good covering of grass on the pitch, and for fast bowlers, bowling back-of-a-length could be profitable.

1445 IST: Gautam Gambhir, the mentor of Lucknow Super Giants, is giving his team a pep talk. The players are in a huddle. Meanwhile, for Mumbai Indians, Fabian Allen is set to make his debut for MI. He's been given his cap; the moment is greeted with claps by the rest of the team.

1440 IST: We're 20 minutes away from the toss. It's the 100th IPL game for K. L. Rahul, the captain of Lucknow Super Giants. He made his debut in IPL 2013. He has one half-century in five innings so far in this competition. Can he deliver a big one today?

MATCH PREVIEW

The hallmark of a champion side is the ability to fight back strongly when things are not going their way.  It is a situation that five-time champion Mumbai Indians have been in the past and shown it can come out of successfully.

After five defeats from as many matches so far, the Rohit Sharma-led side needs to show it can do it once again when it takes on Lucknow Super Giants at the Brabourne Stadium on Saturday. 

The former champions have struggled to nail their playing XI, chopping and changing which has meant it has not been able to achieve the balance between bat and ball.

In the last match, the team played an extra bowler sacrificing batting depth and paid the price for it as struggled to chase down a gettable target despite being in a comfortable position midway through the innings.

The team has often not used its quota of four foreign players and it will be interesting to see if Tim David gets another chance on Saturday to beef up its batting firepower. 

The Super Giants also come into the game on the back of a narrow defeat to Rajasthan Royals in the last match. In that match, the team tried to shuffle its batting order after Trent Boult took some early wickets but despite that Marcus Stoinis almost got them home. 

The team will now want to revert to what worked for it in its three wins and the presence of Stoinis bolsters an already well-balanced squad.

Predicted Playing 11:

MI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Dewald Brevis, Kieron Pollard, Fabian Allen, Murugan Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith, Jaydev Unadkat.

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