Lucknow Super Giants will go head-to-head against Chennai Super Kings in the match 45 of the Indian Premier League 2023 at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. The home side LSG will play this encounter after a consistent run of results that has put them in the top half of the IPL points table. CSK, the visitors, will be looking to bounce back strongly after suffering a last ball loss against PBKS at home. Since both Lucknow and Chennai are in good form this IPL season, their upcoming contest has all the ingredients to be a classic.
Lucknow Super Giants batting lineup has been quite successful in the IPL 2023 with Kyle Mayers, Marcus Stoinis, and Nicholas Pooran scoring the bulk of the runs. The captain KL Rahul has played a couple of good innings for the team but his strike-rate has been a major point of contention in this season. In the bowling department, Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi have been giving quality performances match after match, but the absence of Mark Wood due to illness is a worry for Super Giants.
Chennai Super Kings are no different to their upcoming opponents as far as their batting goes in the IPL 2023. The likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, and Shivam Dube have been putting up scores day in and day out for the team. The bowling lineup of CSK isn’t the most experienced in the tournament, but under the leadership of MS Dhoni, the Sri Lankan duo of Maheesh Theekshana and Matheesha Pathirana alongside the young Indian fast bowlers Akash Singh and Tushar Despande have delivered the goods.
