In the battle to move away from a packed mid-table tussle, the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Wednesday at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow in Match 46 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.

The match was preponed to May 3 from 4, due to local civic elections. When these teams collided earlier in the season, CSK came out on top, edging LSG by just 12 runs in Chepauk. Lucknow are just ahead of CSK by a superior net run rate in the third position. 

Team Preview

Lucknow Super Giants

LSG have a few concerns within their squad, with KL Rahul and Jaydev Unadkat both having suffered injuries. If Rahul is indeed unavailable, one could finally see Quinton de Kock make an appearance up top with Kyle Mayers, with Lucknow dropping Naveen-ul-Haq from their starting XI.

Krunal Pandya will be leading the side, who will have to calm themselves down from the highs of their encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday. 

They will be eager to take revenge and get on level footing with CSK statistically. 

Chennai Super Kings

With back-to-back defeats, the MS Dhoni-led side would like to get back to winning ways and gain momentum for the final leg of the group stage. With two wins and as many losses in away games, CSK need to make the most of their remaining encounters and fine-tune their XI.

With the likes of Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja and Maheesh Theekshana, Chennai hold an edge when it comes to utilising the conditions better. 

The form of CSK's batters also is encouraging.
