The 16th edition of the Indian Premier League is in its final stage. The season has been full of close encounters, and some epic encounters. Today, Mumbai Indians will take on Lucknow Super Giants in the eliminator. The match will end the journey for the losing team.

Mumbai Indians defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match and managed to find a place in the top four, as Royal Challengers Bangalore failed to defeat Gujarat Titans in their last match.

MI chased 200-plus targets four times this season

In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Jofra Archer, Mumbai Indians' bowling looks a little off-track this season. But in the second phase of IPL, all their batters are in form, and they have successfully chased 200-plus targets four times this season.

Rohit Sharma was also back in form in their last match against SRH, where he scored his first half-century of the season. He smashed 56 runs in 37 deliveries with a strike rate of 151.35.

Pooran-Stoinis threat for MI

Pooran and Stoinis are two in-form batters for LSG and can emerge as the biggest challenge for MI's struggling bowling attack. The duo always performed for the team whenever LSG needed them.

The absence of KL Rahul wasn't felt much, as Quinton de Kock replaced him and played some incredible knocks for LSG this season.
