New Delhi: The 45th match of IPL 2023 is between two such teams, whose position in the points tally is almost the same. The Lucknow Super Giants, sitting at the number three position, face MS Dhoni’s team ie Chennai Super Kings, sitting at the fourth position. Both these teams have the same number of points in the points table. But due to better run rate, Lucknow is one rung higher than Chennai.
This will be the second clash of these two teams in IPL 2023. Earlier on 3 April 2023, both the teams clashed at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai, where Chennai Super Kings defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 12 runs. Now the second match between the two is on the Lucknow team’s own ground. That means he has a golden opportunity to settle scores.

The ground is ours, yet the difficulty is big for LSG
But, the big question is, will Lucknow Super Giants be able to defeat Chennai Super Kings? Knowing that the competition is in his own house, it is a bit difficult to say. There are two reasons for this, firstly, his record on the home ground, which is not looking better this season and secondly, suspense on the playing of captain Rahul.
Lucknow Super Giants have lost the last 3 consecutive matches at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium. Apart from this, in the last match ie during fielding against RCB, its captain KL Rahul’s hamstring was pulled. How fit is he now? Will you play or not? It is difficult to say at the moment.
Make Dhoni’s trusted captain!
Talking about Chennai Super Kings, this team has also reached Lucknow after losing the last two matches and now here it would like to wash its hands in the flowing Ganges of KL Rahul’s team’s defeat. This intention can also be implemented if Rituraj Gaikwad’s love for Lucknow remains intact in this match as well.
Gaikwad has scored half-centuries in 2 of the last 3 innings he has played in Lucknow and his strike rate has remained above 148 during this period. Meaning, he can become Dhoni’s reliable here in case of victory. And, if so, then there can be no better option for you to have your dream team.
