MI vs LSG: Lucknow cricketers have their last chance today, if they want to go to T20 World Cup, they will have to show strength.


Lucknow. The Indian cricket team for the T20 World Cup is to be selected on May 1. Now there is only one match to be played in IPL before the team selection for the World Cup. There is a match between Lucknow Supergiants and Mumbai Indians on Tuesday in IPL 2024. This match is also the last chance for Lucknow Supergiants captain KL Rahul to be in the T20 World Cup squad. This is the last chance for KL Rahul to cement his claim for selection as the second wicketkeeper in the Indian team.

KL Rahul’s strike rate has been a cause of concern in T20 cricket. He has been making slow starts in the powerplay. Although he has made some improvements this season. Till now he is 144 in IPL 2024. Has scored 378 runs at an average of 27. The strike rate of Rishabh Pant (160.60) and Sanju Samson (161.08) is better than Rahul. Pant’s place in the T20 World Cup team is almost certain. Delhi Capitals captain Pant has performed brilliantly in both wicketkeeping and batting. Sanju has also staked his claim strongly by playing aggressive innings for Rajasthan Royals. In such a situation, Rahul will have to play more aggressively so that his team can score big and strengthen its claim.

IPL runs will not be useful for T20 World Cup, Rohit brigade will not take risk! Selection based more on confidence than form

Lucknow Supergiants were defeated by Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets in the last match. Now the responsibility of scoring runs fast will be on Quinton de Kock, Marcus Stoinis and Nicklas Pooran. In front of them is the bowling attack of Mumbai which was smashed all over the ground by the Delhi Capitals batsmen on Sunday. Mumbai bowlers had no answer to the strokes of young Jack Fraser McGurk. A world class bowler like Jasprit Bumrah also gave away 19 runs in the first over. Luke Wood and Hardik Pandya had proved to be very expensive.

Mumbai team is at ninth position in the points table. To remain in the race for IPL playoffs, it will have to win all the matches. Good innings will be expected from Indian captain Rohit Sharma and number one batsman Suryakumar Yadav in T20. Hardik, who has failed with both bat and ball this season, will have to perform well to make it to the World Cup team.
