The Lucknow Super Giants will play against the Chennai Super Kings in the 34th match of the Indian Premier League. This game will be played on April 19th at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium at 7:30 PM IST. 

The Super Giants have had a roller coaster ride in the tournament. They have won three and lost three of the six games and are hovering around the top four in the points table. The KL Rahul-led unit will be looking to win this match and climb up the ladder in the points table.

In the first game played at this venue in IPL 2024, the pitch looked like a batting-friendly wicket with the ball coming onto the bat. But in the previous two matches, we have witnessed the traditional slow and low wicket, and the batters have struggled to play their shots. Spinners could have a big impact in this game. 

Three Match-winners for Lucknow Super Giants

KL Rahul 

The LSG skipper has gotten starts but looked rusty with the bat in IPL 2024. KL Rahul has scored 204 runs in the tournament at an average of 34, which suggests that he is in decent form. KL's numbers against CSK are impressive, which might give him the confidence to play more significant innings in this game. In 12 matches against the Super Kings, KL has scored 455 runs at an average of 45.50 while having a strike rate of 140.90. 

Ravi Bishnoi

It has been a cold tournament for Ravi Bishnoi. He has picked up only four wickets in the tournament in six innings. However, the last time Bishnoi played at the Ekana Cricket Stadium against the Delhi Capitals, he looked in good rhythm. Ravi Bishnoi picked up two wickets in the match while conceding 25 runs in his four overs. The fact that in 2023, Bishnoi had a great outing against CSK will add to his confidence. In the only game that he played against CSK in IPL 2023, Bishnoi picked up three wickets for 28 runs in his four overs. So, there is a chance that he will make great use of the wicket and emerge as the match-winner for LSG. 

Quinton de Kock

The South African batter had a decent start to the tournament. But Quinton de Kock has been a bit out of rhythm in the last few games. However, his performance against CSK in IPL 2023 will encourage him and the team management. In the only match against CSK in IPL 2023, de Kock scored 61 runs off 45 balls. So, this could be the day when he regains his form and scores significantly to emerge as the match-winner for his team.
