IPL 2024: LSG vs CSK – Predictions for Today’s Match

There is zero momentum left for LSG in the tournament following back-to-back one-sided losses to DC and KKR. Consolidating their position in the top half of the IPL 2024 points table, CSK is coming off two straight victories over KKR and MI.

Pitch Report

While there has been significant improvement for the hitters in the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow for the IPL 2024 season, the bowlers still have some options. When LSG and CSK play, it will be crucial for the team batting first to post a total of roughly 180 to defend. The average first innings score at this venue in the tournament history is 157, which has increased by about 20 runs in the current IPL.

Team Analysis

Lucknow Super Giants

The batting lineup of the Lucknow Super Giants appears to be overly dependent on players like Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis to go big at a really high tempo, something they haven’t been able to do consistently, especially with the absence of big scores from players like KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock at the top order.

Chennai Super Kings

Along with the captain Ruturaj Gaikwad’s couple of hundreds, Shivam Dube’s consistency in the middle order has greatly strengthened the Chennai Super Kings batting lineup. With four wickets taken in the Mumbai Indians match, Matheesha Pathirana’s bowling department was in incredible form, helping the team to a decisive victory in bowling defence.
