Struggling MI takes on LSG, aiming to stop slide

Bombay: Virtually out of the playoff race and struggling on multiple fronts, a horribly out of control Mumbai Indians will need a special team effort to stop their slide when they take on Lucknow Super Giants in an IPL match in the return leg here on Sunday.

With seven losses in as many games, MI is winless this season and languishing at the bottom with nothing going right for the five-time champion, who failed to win the crucial moments and will need a miracle to reach the play-offs. to get offs.

Lucknow, on the other hand, was looking good with four wins from seven games, but they are coming into the game after losing 18 runs to Royal Challengers Bangalore.

However, the fact that LSG defeated MI by 18 runs in their first leg will give them confidence.

MI has done well in patches but never looked like a unit, prompting former Australian batter Chris Lynn to spark speculation about a rift in camp following their latest defeat to Chennai Super Kings on Thursday.

The defeat also gave MI the dubious record of becoming the first team in IPL history to lose the first seven games in a season.

Skipper Rohit Sharma also seemed to have no idea what is going wrong with the team.
