The winner will face the Gujarat Titans in Friday’s second qualifying encounter at Narendra Modi Stadium.
After winning the toss, MI captain Rohit Sharma declared, “We are going to bat first. A typical wicket in Chennai; it’s in terrific shape right now, but I have no idea how it will hold up to play. While chasing is what we’re aiming for in Mumbai, this lengthier boundary makes putting up a score more advantageous on this ground. The boys are pumped up because we made it and qualified. There have been challenges, but we’ve grown as individuals and as a unit as a result. We have prepared well for this match. Kartikeya has been replaced by Shokeen.
Krunal Pandya, captain of LSG, added, “It’s been a roller coaster of a season, but we’ve never given up. We have individuals who can win matches, so it’s clear that we’re working well together. We are now just responsible for putting our abilities to use. We also would have batted first, but we need to play better cricket today.
