LSG vs MI: Stoinis gearing-up!
The Super Giants are playing this very sensibly here. While Stoinis is taking calculated risks to go after the spinners, Krunal Pandya is content to knock it around.

Chawla strikes immediately after Powerplay!
Piyush Chawla removes Quinton de Kock on the first ball after the powerplay! Superbly bowled googly to start with, tossed up outside off, de Kock gets forward to drive and a healthy nick and well caught by Ishan who did not even appeal for the catch. de Kock knows he hit it and hence walks-off! Rohit comically asks Kishan to stump the batter! Anyway LSG three-down, they are 38/3 after 7 overs.
LSG vs MI: A steady start!
We have another slow and low pitch at Ekana. In professional words, it is another typical #Pitch3 of Lucknow. It is stopping and turning and pacers are getting good returns while bowling their cutters! A score of 150 could be challenging on this surface! LSG 35/2 after the powerplay.
Behrendorff strikes twice!
Jason Behrendorff has struck twice in an over! He first gets Deepak Hooda caught at mid-on and the very next delivery knicks Prerak Mankad off! A good start for Mumbai Indians and another faliure for Deepak Hooda!
