Chennai Super Kings will look to rebound after a close loss to Gujarat Titans in the first match of this season’s IPL. They simply lacked the bowling prowess and experience to win the game. CSK will be looking to improve on their performance from last year’s IPL.
The Lucknow Super Giants began their season with a resounding victory over the Delhi Capitals. They crushed their opponents by winning the match by a whopping 50-run margin. They carried over their strong form from the previous season to start the 2023 season on a high note.
The 6th Match between Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants will take place on April 3rd, 2023 at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.
Match Details to Note
Match: Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants, 6th Match, Indian Premier League 2023
Date: April 03, 2023 (Monday)
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
After losing their first match, the Chennai Super Kings are desperate for a win. They were defeated by 5 wickets and 4 balls in a close contest. Batting first, they put up a respectable total of 178 runs, but fell short by 15-20 runs after Ruturaj Gaikwad’s brilliant start. He scored 92 runs on 50 pitches. Nobody else really stood by him, although he scored more than half of the team’s total runs.
Rajvardhan Hangargekar was the pick of the bowlers, taking three wickets on debut for his team. Ravindra Jadeja was also economical, conceding only 28 runs in four overs while taking one wicket. This was insufficient, as they were unable to defend the target.
Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni(w/c), Shivam Dube, Mitchell Santner, Deepak Chahar, RS Hangargekar, Tushar Deshpande, Subhranshu Senapati, Shaik Rasheed, Ajinkya Rahane, Nishant Sindhu, Dwaine Pretorius, Ajay Jadav Mandal, Prashant Solanki, Simarjeet Singh, Akash Singh, Bhagath Varma
Players to watch out for:
After a fantastic 92-run inning in Game 1 of the IPL 2023, Gaikwad’s form is critical for CSK to get off to a good start. Because this could be a high-scoring game, the 26-year-old will try to counter-attack Avesh Khan and Mark Wood.
After being brought in with high expectations, Stokes failed to live up to them, being dismissed for only 7 runs. The English all-rounder will be looking for redemption in match 6 against LSG. Furthermore, Stokes has faced Mark Wood in the nets numerous times and will be crucial in attacking the same bowler.
In order to fill the role of an ideal finisher for CSK, Jadeja will bat higher in the order. Furthermore, his middle-over spin bowling can be a trump card for the MS Dhoni-led side if they are to take regular wickets.
Possible Playing XI:
MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Ben Stokes, Mitchell Santner, Devon Convay, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Deepak Chahar
After crushing their opponents by 50 runs, the Lucknow Super Giants had a dream start to the 2023 IPL. LSG batted first and set a huge target of 194 for the opposition to chase. Kyle Mayers batted brilliantly, scoring 73 off 38 balls. Coming down the order, Nicholas Pooran scored 38 runs to help LSG reach this massive total.
In the bowling department, Mark Wood bowled brilliantly, dismantling the opposition’s batting. He bowled a lifetime spell, allowing only 14 runs in four overs while picking up five wickets. Avesh Khan also took two crucial wickets while remaining economical.
KL Rahul(c), Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran(w), Ayush Badoni, Mark Wood, Jaydev Unadkat, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Krishnappa Gowtham, Prerak Mankad, Swapnil Singh, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yash Thakur, Daniel Sams, Romario Shepherd, Yudhvir Singh Charak, Karan Sharma, Mayank Yadav, Amit Mishra, Manan Vohra
Players to watch out for:
After a slow start, this West Indian batting all-rounder steadied the sinking batting ship for LSG. Mayers enters Match 6 on the heels of an impressive 73-run inning, demonstrating how he can smash the ball all over the field; his form at the top can determine this team’s eventual total.
This experienced English bowler was unstoppable, taking 5 wickets. After dismissing three of DC’s four top-order batsmen, the battle between Wood and Gaikwad will be fascinating to watch.
He took two wickets in his four overs while conceding only 29 runs. Although the opposition batting lineup can exploit his raw pace, there is no denying that Avesh’s performance in the death overs will be crucial.
Possible Playing XI:
Avesh Khan, Nicholas Pooran, Kyle Mayers, KL Rahul, Ayush Badoni, Marcus Stoinis, Ravi Bishnoi, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Mark Wood, Jaydev Unadkat
Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants Top Team Batsmen
We recommend you select Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, and Ben Stokes from CSK’s batting lineup. While Gaikwad is one of the team’s orange cap front runners after the first match, Ali and Stokes will both be looking for redemption in Match 6. After failing to impress with the bat in the team’s previous game, both will be urged to bat calmly and contribute to the team’s total.
We recommend Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran, and Deepak Hooda from the Lucknow Super Giants. While KL Rahul appears to be struggling to score runs, LSG will rely on Mayers and Hooda to bat deep, while Pooran can be used to provide a quality finish to the team’s batting innings.
Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants Top Team Bowlers
We recommend Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, and Rajvardhan Hangargekar. While Chahar and Hangargekar will be crucial with the new ball to dismiss Myers and Rahul early on, Jadeja’s spin could be the game-winner for the four-time IPL champions. Not only does he bowl his overs quickly, but his wicket-to-wicket length can also be beneficial.
We recommend Mark Wood, Avesh Khan, and Ravi Bishnoi from the LSG bowling lineup. The first two picks, like CSK’s, will be critical in taking wickets early on to help LSG gain momentum. Bishnoi’s variation, on the other hand, can help him turn both ways.
Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants Head to Head
