LSG vs CSK Live Score, IPL 2023: Get the IPL live score updates between Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants from the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium.
Returning to its fort at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium for the first time since 2019, Chennai Super lords will hope to get the better of Lucknow Super titans and post its first palm of the IPL this time on Monday.
CSK lost the season nature in Ahmedabad to Gujarat elephants by five lattices and will need to come up with a better overall performance to attack the Super titans ’ challenge. While Ruturaj Gaikwad laid the platform with a brilliant 92, none of the other batters rounded him, and Super lords ended up with a sub-par aggregate which proved expensive in the end. also, death bowling is an area of concern with an inexperienced pace attack.
Still, the pitch at Chepauk, which has traditionally supported spin, should favour the home platoon and paper over the cracks in its bowling department. A lot rides on left- arm baits Mitchell Santner and Ravindra Jadeja to give improvements during the middle overs.
On the other hand, Super titans come into the game on the reverse of a thumping 50- run palm over the Delhi centrals in its first match. The West Indies contingent of Kyle Mayers and Nicholas Pooran led LSG’s charge with the club before Mark Wood sealed it with a brilliant five- gate haul. Wood’s fiery pace could pose a big challenge for the Super lords ’ top order.
But before whatever happens over the 40 overs on Monday, anticipate the biggest cheers to resonate across the colosseum when M.S. Dhoni walks to the centre for the toss. It’s the moment suckers in the megacity have been staying patiently for the last many times. A CSK palm will just be the icing on the cutlet.
K Gowtham to coliseum inside the Power Play. Gaikwad backs down and whacks one over the bowler’s head for the first six of the innings. All power from Gaikwad on that occassion. He does one better in the same over when he launches Gowtham, this time over long- out for six further. CSK’s 50 comes up. He veritably nearly gets four off the coming ball but Deepak Hooda’s athleticism saves two. But Gaikwad wraps up the over with another outside over deep cover. 20 from the over.
Mark Wood smogs in and is saluted by a Conway drive for four. Conway loves pace on. Wood also concedes 4 byes, the ball flying over Conway and Pooran behind wholes. Conway follows it up with a regal pull for four. Gaikwad now plays an outrageous film to collect six. What a launch. 19 off it. This is now CSK’s loftiest ever Powerplay score at Chepauk.
Yash outsmarts Gaikwad with a cushion but Gaikwad’s tried pull takes a top edge and circles over Avesh at short fine leg and races down for four. Yash now brushing pace off. Both batters have run really well between the lattices. Nine coming off that over.
Tushar Deshpande comes into the attack. Deshpande, the Impact Player, bowls a fleck ball but he has surpassed. Free hit for Mayers. Deshpande now bowls a wide. So, the free megahit stays. Deshpande oversteps again! Dear God. now another wide. Deshpande is each over the place. Mayers gets another freebie- a full toss that he gleefully hits for four. Deshpande coliseums another wide. LSG bring up their 50. Mayers has lit up Chepauk with his power- hitting, swings and connects as this full ball flies over long- on for six. 18 from it.
Deshpande to drift the 20th. He starts with a wide. CSK need to have an redundant fielder inside the circle because they were too slow brushing their overs. Deshpande concedes a leg bye off a no ball! It’s a free megahit for Badoni, who collects just 2. Deshpande now gets Badoni and that’s the match, surely. Mark Wood, the new man, will be on strike. He ends the over with a four and a six but that’s not enough in the end. Know More IPL News…
