Chennai Super Kings

The Super Kings began their journey with 3 wins on the trot, but have lost their way to some extent. Having lost 3 out of their last 4 matches, the 5-time champions have looked a little off colour. They will go into the match after losing to the Super Giants by 8 wickets at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow.

Ravindra Jadeja was their standout performer with the bat after he scored an unbeaten 57. MS Dhoni also did not let his fans down as he smashed an unbeaten 28 off 9 balls, including a 101-metre six off Yash Thakur in the last over.

The CSK vs LSG prediction will depend on how the Super Kings turn their fortunes around after losing in Lucknow.

Chennai Super Kings Possible 11: Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Mustafizur Rahman, Matheesha Pathirana

Who is the Owner of CSK in IPL?

Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow, on the other hand, have blown hot and cold in the tournament. The absence of Mayank Yadav, who has bowled the fastest ball of IPL 2024, has affected them to some extent. But LSG showed a lot of character after they beat CSK in their previous game.

Krunal Pandya was their standout bowler after he finished with impressive figures of 3-0-16-2. Thereafter, KL Rahul scored 82 runs off 53 balls with 9 fours and 3 sixes to take his team past the finish line. Quinton de Kock and Nicholas Pooran also looked settled in the middle.

The outcome of the CSK vs LSG prediction will depend on how the Super Giants carry their momentum from the win in their last game.

Lucknow Super Giants Possible 11: Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul (c & wk), Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Matt Henry, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan, Yash Thakur
