5-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians defeated Lucknow Super Giants in what was a humiliating 81-run defeat at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Wednesday, 24th May. MI had won the toss and had decided to bat first, which was certainly the right decision as the pitch at Chepauk supports the side that bats first. Batting first, MI set up a very convincing total of 182 for LSG to chase. 

Wickets started falling left, right and centre for LSG as they were restricted to a mere 101 in 16.3 overs by MI. The Giants lost all of their batsmen at just 101 with as many as 21 balls remaining. It was a bitter defeat for the Giants who got knocked out by MI in quite a harsh manner. MI’s bowlers were on absolute fire last night. So without further delay, let’s take a look at the top 3 best performers from last night’s match between MI and LSG.

3. Naveen-ul-Haq

LSG’s Naveen-ul-Haq was the best performer from the LSG camp last night, having picked up a total of 4 wickets, while giving away 37 runs in the 4 overs that he bowled against the Indians. He was the highest-wicket taker from his side and managed to clinch some important wickets for his side, for instance the wicket of MI captain Rohit Sharma. 

2. Cameron Green 

MI’s Cameron Green has arguably been one of the best players in this IPL season. In last night’s match against LSG, Green smashed 41 runs off just 23 balls, batting at a strike rate of 178.26, with as many as 6 fours and 1 six to his name. Green has been prolific this IPL season, also having scored a blistering century in MI’s last match against SRH.

MI’s Akash Madhwal was the best performer on the pitch last night, having recorded the best bowling figures of IPL 2023 of 5/5 in the 3.3 overs that he bowled against LSG. Madhwal’s innings saw him clinch the Player of the Match award as he played a significant role in handing MI an emphatic victory over LSG in the eliminator sending them into Qualifier 2 against Gujarat Titans.
