Mumbai, May 17 : Mumbai Indians elected to field first against Lucknow Super Giants in Match 67 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Wankhede Stadium here on Friday.

As they are already out of the playoffs race, Mumbai Indians made a couple of changes in their playing XI, resting Jasprit Bumrah ahead of the T20 World Cup. Arjun Tendulkar comes in for Bumrah while Tilak Varma is out with an injury with Dewald Brevis coming in. Tim David was also rested.

Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya said they want to chase as the ball comes on nicely onto the bat at the Wankhede Stadium.

He said the players are looking forward to giving their best even though it is an inconsequential match.

"What character we bring into the last match matters," he said adding that and the fact that they're out might give them "more freedom" to express themselves on Friday night.

Lucknow Super Giants skipper K.L Rahul informed that Quinton de Kock is out and Devdutt Padikkal comes in his place.

"We are a bit disappointed to be in this situation because we had started well. We were in a good position a few days back but a couple of games made us lose the momentum," he said.
