Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings 7th Match Preview
Both teams will have to overcome the failure of the top order. Ravindra Jadeja-led CSK and KL Rahul’s LSG were let down by the top-order batsmen in their opening encounter.
When the Powerplay needed a quick start, both the teams lost wickets at regular intervals. The result was that batting first could not get a big score on the scoreboard. In the previous match against Kolkata Knight Riders, all-rounder Dwayne Bravo took three wickets but other bowlers could not bowl well.
LSG Probable XI:
KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Mohsin Khan, Ayush Badoni, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan
CSK Probable XI:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Moeen Ali Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (c), Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Adam Milne, Tushar Deshpande
Brabourne has a good batting track. The pitch has a good pace and bounces that’s why it comes nicely to the bat. Where the small size of the ground and even pace give an extra advantage to batters.
MI had scored 177 runs in the first match of this ground at this IPL and DC had chased down the score quite comfortably.

Chennai Needs To Perform As A Unit.
After initial failures from CSK’s Rituraj Gaikwad and Devon Conway, experienced Robin Uthappa could not convert the good start they got into big innings.
Captain Ravindra Jadeja could not perform with the bat, which he has given for Team India recently. Against Lucknow, CSK’s upper-order batsmen would like to do better.
Moeen Ali’s presence will be a big relief for defending champions Chennai for the selection in the playing 11. Chennai will expect good captaincy from their new captain Jadeja with better bowling. Bravo needs only 1 wicket to become the most successful bowler in IPL.
