Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul said that he happy that the depth in his side due to multiple all-rounders is allowing him to play freely.
It was Rahul's second over rate offence of the season after he was fined Rs 12 lakh for the first offence.
Mumbai Indians (MI) are playing an unchanged side, while Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) replaced injured pacer Avesh Khan with rookie Mohsin Khan.
Mumbai Indians' fielding was perhaps their worst in the past four to five seasons and it didn't help matters that Rahul was in imperious form to make full use of it.
Seeking to end their five-match losing streak, MI made one change from their previous match playing XI with Fabian Allen replacing Basil Thampi.
This is not the first time that MI have had a losing streak of five matches but this is probably the first time that it seems that the team's think-tank do not have an idea of how to stem the rot.
