Arjun Tendulkar was bitten by a dog
After knowing the condition of Arjun Tendulkar, both Yudhveer Singh and Mohsin Khan asked him to take care of himself. Looking at the video, it is known that the dog has bitten Arjun on his left hand. The marks of injury are only near his fingers. It is just a matter of credit that those marks are not that deep. Because if this was not the case, he would not be seen bowling on the nets.

The match is big in Lucknow and Mumbai

This will be the first encounter of both the teams in IPL 2023. Earlier in the last season, both the teams had met twice and both the matches were won by Lucknow Super Giants. Now it remains to be seen whether Mumbai Indians can register their first win against them or not.
