LSG vs MI Probable Best Performers
Probable best batter
Suryakumar Yadav is relishing an excellent season and has found his rhythm with the bat. In 12 matches, the explosive right-hander has got 479 runs at a solid average of 43.55, lacing it with four fifties and one century to his name. In doing so, he is in contention for the IPL Orange Cap and will be looking to continue his purple patch in the next game against LSG.
Probable best bowler
The seasoned leggie has the potential to spin a web around the rival batting unit. Moreover, with a slower wicket on offer, Piyush will likely benefit from this and look to take advantage to get the breakthroughs.
