LSG won the toss and elected to field first.

CSK vs LSG: IPL 2024 team news

Both teams have won four matches from seven games each, with CSK sitting fourth on the points table, a position in front, due to their superior Net Run Rate (NRR) of 0.529 compared to LSG’s 0.123.

Ajinkya Rahane, who played as an opener in the last two matches, has recovered from the calf niggle, meaning he could continue to bat in his usual position in the middle. The move would lead to Shivam Dube once again playing as an Impact Player if CSK bowl fast. If they bat first, Matheesha Pathirana could come in as a substitute.

For Lucknow, Mayank Yadav has still not fully recovered. They could bring in Devdutt Padikal despite his poor showing in each of his five innings so far due to his matchups with most of the CSK bowlers.

Padikkal and Mohsin Khan can be LSG’s Impact Players.

CSK vs LSG: Prediction for today’s IPL match

CSK are playing at their fortress Cheapuk and have won three out of three this season here. However, they should be wary of LSG, who are well suited to this sluggish pitch from their experience on slow home wicket. It’s an even-steven affair.
