The IPL Season 16 knockout match will be played today (May 23) between Lucknow Super Giants and Mumbai Indians. Which team will win in this match? This question is on everyone’s mind. This match between Lucknow and Mumbai will take place at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. So far three matches have been played between the two, in which Lucknow have won all three.
But looking at the numbers from last season’s qualifier, it seems that in the 2023 IPL qualifier match, the Mumbai team can beat Lucknow. Actually, the Lucknow Super Giants team had to face defeat in the knockout match played against RCB in the last season i.e. IPL 2022. Looking at this Lucknow knockout figure, it looks like Mumbai can record a victory in today’s game.
The winning team in the knockout match to be played between Mumbai and Lucknow will play the second qualifying match against Gujarat Titans on Friday, May 26. Now it will be interesting to see which team will take on Gujarat.
Let us tell you that in the history of the IPL, the record of teams reaching the Eliminator has been very bad. In the 15 seasons that have been completed so far, it happened only once when the team playing Eliminator won the title. Sunrisers Hyderabad did this in 2016.
In IPL 2016, the Sunrisers Hyderabad team was at number three on the points table and the team defeated number four KKR in the Eliminator by 22 runs. Following this, Hyderabad won the match played against the Gujarat Lions by 4 wickets in Qualifier-2.
Then in the final, Hyderabad won by defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 runs. Hyderabad won this title under the captaincy of Australian player David Warner.
