LSG vs MI Pitch Report

Five matches have so far been played at the Ekana cricket stadium in IPL 2024. In the first match it looked like a fresh wicket with good pace and bounce. The batters and the faster bowlers enjoyed the surface. However, after that it appeared to be the traditional slow and sluggish pitch of Lucknow. In the last game between LSG and RR, however, the wicket looked good for batting and 395 runs were scored in 39 overs during the game. 

We can expect a competitive wicket for the LSG vs MI game. Players of all trades will have something on it.
