LKK vs CSG: Team Previews

Lyca Kovai Kings

Defending champions, the Lyca Kovai Kings have always been a competitive side in the TNPL, having won two titles already in the past two years, including one shared with Chepauk Super Gillies due to a final washout. 

This year, LKK will aim to defend their title with a strong start to the season against CSG. However, Kings will miss the services of Sai Sudharsan as the batter was called in for national duty for the upcoming Zimbabwe Tour. 

Regardless, Shahrukh Khan will be available to lead the side to yet another successful TNPL season.

Chepauk Super Gillies

The Chepauk Super Gillies are undoubtedly one of the most successful franchises in TNPL history. They won three titles from 2019 to 2022 but missed out on 2023 season playoffs by barest of margins.

Regardless, with a strong squad, CSG are expected to redeem themselves in 2024.  Andre Siddarth will lead the side this year with Pradosh Ranjan Paul and Aswi Christ playing a key role in their quest to another championship.

While beating defending champions LKK is a significant challenge, Super Gillies’ belief will result in an exciting contest.

LKK vs CSG: SCF Cricket Ground Pitch Report

The pitch of SCG stadium tends to get quicker and better for stroke play as the game progresses. Also, the dry nature of the surface allows the ball to grip and turn, making spinners effective in the middle overs and towards the end of the innings. Hence, anything around 200 runs in the first innings should be a par score.
