Venue and timing 

This upcoming CSK vs LSG match is going to be played on 23rd April at 7.30 PM at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. This time Chennai will play in their home ground. Chennai is always the best performer in their hometown. So we can expect a good innings from CSK. Also, Lucknow SuperGiants have been in good form in recent matches. So we can expect a good knock. Both teams played their last match against each other. So this will be a clash again. And both teams will try to convert it into a win. Although Chennai has some pressure on them to perform well in their home ground. Let's see the performance of both teams in this IPL season 2024. 

Both teams journey so far: IPL 2024

Chennai Super kings (CSK) 

This IPL season was a great start for five-time champions, Chennai Super Kings. Although sometimes the team looked unbalanced, overall the performance of CSK was good. This season they have played seven matches so far and out of it they can convert four wins and three losses. This all helps the team to stand in the 3rd position in the points table. However, in the last match against Lucknow SuperGiants, they lost the match by 8 wickets. So this time CSK will try to win this match to forget the last loss. Also this time Chennai has their home ground which will add some benefits for them. 

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) 

The journey of Lucknow Super Giants is a mixture of loss and wins. Like CSK they also played seven matches in this IPL season. And out of this they have won in 4 matches and lost the other three. They are seated in 5th position in the points table. Lucknow has played their last match against the CSK itself. This match was in favor of Lucknow and they won the match. This gave a boost to the team as it is not easy to win against CSK. This will motivate the team to tackle this match too.

So basically both teams' journey in this IPL is similar. Both have played 7 matches and out of them they have won 4 matches and lost the three. So this match is like getting a point more to secure a high rank in the points table. 

Head to head in IPL history 

Lucknow is a new team in aspects of all other teams in IPL. So there are not so many matches being played between both of them. They played 4 matches against each other. Out of these 2 matches were won by Lucknow and 1 match was won by Chennai. And one match had no result. Even in this IPL, both have had a clash against each other recently, i.e. the last match between CSK and LSG. This match was an easy win for LSG. So on this note also this match is important. As CSK will try to recover the loss. Also, LSG is leading the record in head-to-head matches. 

Player to watch out, for the CSK vs LSG

CSK: From the CSK side we have Ravindra Jadeja, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shivam Dube. These all performed decent innings in the last few matches. And we can expect a good innings in this upcoming match too. From the bowling side, Matheesha Pathirana and Mustafizur Rahman can show some good bowling spells. Although Chennai is known for team efforts more than player efforts. So this may be a good point for them. 

LSG: From the LSG side we have last-match heroes; Captain KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, and Nicholas Pooran. These three were the best performers in the last match and eventually helped his team in recording a win against CSK. In this upcoming match too we can expect good battings from these three. From the bowling side, Yash Thakur and Monish Khan can show a good bowling lineup in this upcoming match. If these all played well no doubt LSG can win against CSK.
