LSG vs CSK Today Match Prediction & Tips

Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Lucknow Super Giants will take on Chennai Super Kings in the 34th match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 19.

Lucknow Super Giants have lost the previous two games which makes the coming game against CSK very important. LSG haven’t been at their best so far. While teams have managed to score 200+ score consistently this season, LSG have mostly scored around the 160 run mark. Not sure that would be enough against CSK.  The concern for LSG has been their batting as barring Nicholas Pooran, others have been ordinary, including KL Rahul. The bowlers though have done well.

Meanwhile, CSK picked up a thrilling win over MI at the Wankhede Stadium. The team is placed third on the points table with four wins and two defeats. Ruturaj Gaikwad’s return to  form is a great news for the team while Shivam Dube has been mighty consistent. MS Dhoni has also turned back the clock and struck lusty blows in final overs. However, lack of runs from Rachin Ravindra is a concern. The bowling from CSK has been top notch and the conditions in Lucknow will suit the visitors.

LSG vs CSK Match Toss Prediction

Ekana Stadium is not a very easy ground to chase and most captains have preferred to bat here and post a score of around 170-180. 

LSG vs CSK Pitch Report

The pitch at the Ekana Stadium is slightly on the slower side. The ball does not come on nicely and batters often struggle for timing. A score of around 170-180 is slightly above par here.

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

LSG are unlikely to make any changes to their combination. Mayank Yadav, who missed the last game due to injury, has returned to bowling but we doubt the team would rush him back to the playing XI. 

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul – KL Rahul has not been at his best so far in IPL 2024. He has scored 204 runs at a strike rate of 138 but the consistency which we are used to seeing from Rahul is missing. He has just scored one fifty so far. Against CSK, Rahul will need to be at his best if LSG have to pull off a win.
  • Nicholas Pooran – Pooran has been magnificent and played a significant role in LSG’s wins. He has scored 223 runs as a strike rate of 161. Coming down the order, the batter has struck lusty blows and helped LSG reach a decent total. Pooran has stayed not out in three out of the six innings.
  • Krunal Pandya – Krunal Pandya is valuable for LSG given his all-round skills. He hasn’t yet delivered a match winning performance but he has played the supporting role well. If required, he can be asked to bat up the order. Also, conditions in Lucknow will suit his style of bowling. 
  • Shamar Joseph – Shamar Joseph had a poor debut for LSG but he is a top bowler and will be eyeing a strong return against CSK. He has all the ingredients to become a match winner for his side.  

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

M Siddharth, Arshad Khan, Amit Mishra, K Gowtham, P Mankad

Since the match is being played in Lucknow, M Siddharth has the greatest odds of getting picked as impact player. If LSG want to strengthen their batting, P Mankad can get a chance.

LSG Team Form

LSG have blown hot and cold so far. The team has played six matches, winning three and losing as many.

LSG Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul (c & wk), Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Shamar Joseph, Yash Thakur

CSK Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

The conditions in Lucknow will be very similar to what CSK get in Chennai so we see no changes in the CSK playing XI for the upcoming clash. 

CSK Key Players

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad – Gaikwad has finally picked momentum after a slow start to IPL 2024. He played a magnificent innings of 69 against MI. This was his second fifty of the tournament and he now has 224 runs to his name.
  • Shivam Dube –  Shivam Dube continued his magnificent form and blasted 66 vs MI.  He is the leading run scorer for CSK, with 242 runs to his name and will hold the key against LSG.  
  • Ravindra Jadeja – Jadeja will enjoy the conditions of Lucknow. The pitch tends to offer help to the spinners and Jadeja becomes far more dangerous on such wickets. Even though he has not scored many runs, he is more than capable to win a game with just his bowling.
  • Matheesha Pathirana – Making a return from injury, Matheesha Pathirana made an immediate impact and bagged a four wicket haul against MI. He has been magnificent, taking eight wickets in three matches for CSK. 

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Matheesha Pathirana, Nishant Sandhu, Mitchell Santner, Moeen Ali, Shaik Rasheed

Pathirana will be the impact player for CSK, no doubt about it. He has been a great addition to the CSK and more often than not lived up to the expectations this season. 

CSK Team Form

CSK have played six games, winning four and suffering defeats in two matches.

CSK Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Daryl Mitchell, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Sameer Rizvi, MS Dhoni (wk), Shardul Thakur, Tushar Deshpande, Mustafizur Rahman

LSG vs CSK Betting Odds

CSK are getting the favourites tag. CSK have been on a roll and are much stronger than LSG thus the punters have backed them to win.

Who will win Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match?

We suggest backing CSK to win. The Ruturaj Gaikwad-led side is a better side, with quality batting and equally potent bowling attack. They have good pacers and match winning spinners. The team has all bases covered and it will be tough for LSG to get through them.

🏆 LSG vs CSK Prediction

CSK are favourites to win for us. CSK are a far better side, with batters and bowlers in great form. There seem to be no loophole in the Men in Yellow at the moment. LSG, on the other hand, have struggled because of the form of their batters as only Nicholas Pooran has been able to get runs consistently. For us, CSK are clear favourites.
