Pitch Report and Weather Conditions

From 2018 onwards, the average first innings score at this venue has been under 155 with spinners generally having the most success of the bowlers. However, we expect the average score to be exceeded in this game and whoever bats first will be targeting a total around 180.

Even after the sun has set on Monday evening, the temperature will remain above 30 degrees during this match. Although there will be no cloud cover, it will be very humid from start to finish.

Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants – Match Predictions

Chennai Super Kings were no match for the reigning IPL Champions, Gujarat Titans, in Match 1 and they face another tough test in this game. Lucknow Super Giants thrashed Delhi Capitals by 50 runs in Match 3 and we are backing them to come out on top on Monday.

Probable 6s

Both teams wasted no time in getting into their six-hitting stride in their opening matches with CSK clearing the ropes 13 times and Lucknow doing so 16 times! After seven of their eight batters hit at least 1x six against Delhi Capitals, we think there are more big-hitters in the Lucknow side and we have picked them to hit the most sixes in this game.

Our prediction: Lucknow Super Giants to hit most sixes in the match at 4/6 (1.67).

Probable Wickets

England’s pace-supremo Mark Wood was in fine form on Saturday! He took 5-14 and will be raring to go again in this match with four days of rest ahead of their next game.

Our prediction: Mark Wood to be Lucknow Super Giants’ highest wicket-taker at 5/2 (3.50).

Man of the Match

After missing out with the bat in the opening game, we expect KL Rahul to get his first big score of the tournament in this match. The Lucknow Super Giants’ skipper is often at his best on wickets which offer something for the bowlers and that could very well be the case in Chennai.

Our prediction: KL Rahul to be the Man of the Match at 8/1 (9.00).

Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants Preview

The Super Kings are looking to avoid their fifth successive IPL defeat with the Super Giants targeting their third win from their last four matches. The teams have met only once before with Lucknow winning by six wickets.

Chennai Super Kings

Although it was a tough start and a defeat against Gujarat Titans, there were plenty of positives with bat and ball for CSK. Ruturaj Gaikwad was the pick of the batters with Rajvardhan Hangargekar impressing with the ball on debut. Sisanda Magala is now available, after the conclusion of the South Africa vs Netherlands series, but is not expected to arrive in time for his first IPL appearance just yet.

Predicted XI: Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c) (wk), Mitchell Santner, Deepak Chahar, Rajvardhan Hangargekar

Lucknow Super Giants

South African keeper-batter Quinton de Kock is waiting in the wings but may have to wait a while to regain his place in the side after Kyle Mayers bludgeoned 73 runs from 38 balls at the top of the order on Saturday! Only injuries could force the team to make changes after such a dominant display against Delhi Capitals and none have been reported by the team management.

Predicted XI: KL Rahul (c) (wk), Kyle Mayers, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Ayush Badoni, Krishnappa Gowtham, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, Jaydev Unadkay, Mark Wood
