LSG vs CSK Team Previews

Lucknow Super Giants

The Lucknow Super Giants had a strong start to their campaign as they won 3 of their first 4 matches. However, the team has lost some steam in the last week and is coming into this contest on the back of consecutive losses. As a result, the team has dropped down from the top 4 spots.

The Lucknow Super Giants will look towards KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock to give them a strong start. While the duo has played some good knocks, they will have to be a bit more consistent going forward.

Nicholas Pooran will be another key player for LSG. He is the top run-getter for the team and has scored 223 runs at an average of 74.33. LSG’s biggest weakness has been its middle order. The likes of Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni, and Deepak Hooda have failed to get going on multiple occasions, leading to the team’s below-par performance.

Coming to the bowling, Shamar Joseph had a pretty ordinary IPL debut as he went wicketless against KKR. He will be joined by Mohsin Khan and Yash Thakur in the pace department. Ravi Bishnoi has struggled too, bagging only 4 wickets in 6 games.

The absence of Mayank Yadav is a big one as he turned out to be a wicket-taker in the middle order. Without him, LSG might struggle once more.<br />

Chennai Super Kings

The Chennai Super Kings have won 4 of their 6 matches and are placed 3rd in the points table. A win here will help the team create some cushion from the extremely cluttered middle of the table.

CSK started last match with Ajinkya Rahane and Rachin Ravindra as their opening pair. The duo hasn’t been in the best of forms but it is just a matter of time before they get going. Ruturaj Gaikwad might jump back to the opening role in this match.

CSK's middle order has been rock solid in the last couple of games.

Shivam Dube and Ruturaj Gaikwad have scored a couple of half-centuries each and have kept the run-rate going during the middle order. Dube is the best six-hitter against spin in the IPL right now. On a slow surface in Lucknow, his contribution might be pivotal.

With the likes of Daryl Mitchell, Ravindra Jadeja, and MS Dhoni following them lower down the order, there is plenty of depth in the batting. Matheesha Pathirana bowled a brilliant spell in the last match, picking up 4 wickets. He has proved to be an invaluable asset, especially during the death overs.

In addition, CSK will employ the services of Mustafizur Rahman and Tushar Deshpande with the new ball, while Ravindra Jadeja will helm the spin attack. 

The conditions in Lucknnow are going to be quite similar to what you can see in Chennai and that may end up faving the men in yellow.

However, looking at the recent form of both teams, we feel that CSK has a better chance of winning this match, thanks to a better balance of players. They like playing in spin-friendly conditions and certainly have more power at their disposal.

    Total wickets

    Over 13.5 (2.20)


The pitch at Lucknow does provide the bowlers ample opportunities to pick up wickets. With the kind of form that the CSK bowlers, especially the seamers, are enjoying, there is a high likelihood of at least 14 wickets falling.

  1. Parimatch


    Total 6s

    Under 14.5 (1.90)


The boundaries in Lucknow are among the longest compared to other stadiums. As the last two matches played here have seen fewer than 14 maximums scored, that is likely to be the case yet again. The average sixes hit at this venue in the previous 10 IPL matches is 12. An opportunity worth taking advantage of.

  1. Dafabet


    Top batsman for CSK

    Shivam Dube (6.5)


Dube is in excellent form this season and has scored 242 runs, making him the top run-getter for his team. Dube is averaging 60.50 in 6 innings and his knocks include 2 half-centuries. Given the mouth-watering odds on offer, it is worth taking a punt on him.
