IPL 2023 Match 6 | CSK vs LSG Preview: Pitch report, Head-to-Head and more
After losing the tournament opener to defending champions Gujarat Titans, Dhoni's CSK will look to bounce back against the Lucknow Super Giants in today's game at Chennai's MA Chidambaram stadium. The CSK vs LSG match, which will kick off at 07:30 PM, is promising to be a thrilling affair.
The Chepauk pitch is usually a spinner's delight
Traditionally, the pitch at Chepauk Stadium has been a spin-friendly turf which doesn't see many high scoring games. Naturally, such a pitch will prove to be helpful for CSK spinners like Ravindra Jadeja and Mitch Santner. But a relatively slow wicket might also pose problems for CSK's middle order, which didn't put on a good display in the previous game.
Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, are coming off the back of an impressive victory in their first game against Delhi Capitals. And they also have quality spinners like Krunal Pandya and Ravi Bishnoi to utilize the spin-friendly Chepauk surface. LSG's batters, too, will start the game with confidence having put forth a tremendous display in the last game.
CSK vs LSG: Head-to-Head & Stadium records
The Chennai Super Kings have faced Lucknow Super Giants only once in the IPL in a game which was won by the latter. But CSK have turned the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai into a fortress, winning 40 out of the 56 matches they've played here, featuring some memorable performances in previous editions of the IPL.
But KL Rahul's men would love to put a dent in this impressive record and clinch their second victory of the tournament while Mahi's men would be itching to show the Lucknow franchise why Chennai Super Kings is the most consistent side in the Indian Premier League, making it a mouthwatering prospect for us fans.
IPL fans! We know we don't need to tell you more and you're already planning to tune in right on the dot for the 07:30 PM game. And whichever side you're on, Rahul's Super Giants or Dhoni's Super Kings, this one's going to be a belter of an IPL match.
Now, if you'll excuse us, we have popcorns to arrange!
