Match 45: CSK VS LSG, Playing XI prediction, Pitch report and more

Today on May 3, 2023, at 3:30 the 45th match of the IPL will be played. This match will be between CSK VS LSG. Both teams are currently in the top 4 teams. But both the teams have faced defeat in their last game. Both teams would like to win this match and find their rhythm again in such a situation.



While the contentious exchange between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir diverted attention from the actual game, the Lucknow Super Giants have historically performed poorly at home. The Super Giants lost their third straight game at home after failing to win a low-scoring contest against Royal Challengers Bangalore. They will face tough competition when Chennai Super Kings, a team noted for their skill on slower wickets, come to town.

LSG has failed to meet targets of 136 and 127 in the last two games at the Ekana Cricket Stadium, with their international players struggling in particular. Apart from Kyle Mayers’ 38-ball 73 against Delhi Capitals in the first game, there hasn’t been much to note in terms of contributions from the foreign players who have struggled to adjust to the local pitches. With only two home games left, the squad is still trying to figure out why even the Indian batters, aside from KL Rahul, have not had much of an impact.

With a bowling assault that can completely derail the opposition’s innings, the Super Kings will feel more at home in Lucknow. The middle overs are CSK’s preferred time of play, even though they need to do better at the powerplay and the death, and they would undoubtedly love such a wicket compared to what they got back home in Chepauk as spin, contrary to predictions, did not play a significant role in the majority of their encounters.

CSK will go into the game as the favourites because of their efficient batting unit and bowlers who can make the most of slow pitches. This is especially true given that Rahul won’t be starting due to a hip-flexor injury he sustained in the previous match.

CSK VS LSG: When and where this match will be played

THE CSK VS LSG match will be played today at 3:30 PM at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow. This will be the home game of Lucknow.

CSK VS LSG: Pitch and Weather Report

The pitch at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium is a slow pitch that always sees a low-scoring contest. So today’s match is also expected to be a low-scoring match, it will be interesting to see if CSK bat first, will they be able to convert the low-scoring match into a high scoring one.

The weather has changed a bit in North India at this time, it has been raining for many days, and in the last match also rain had disturbed and even today there is a possibility of rain with lightning.
