IPL 2023: CSK will return home after 4 years, Dhoni brigade will come out with the intention of winning against LSG in Chepauk
IPL 2023, Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants: IPL after losing the first match in Chennai Super Kings Lucknow will face the Super Giants on Monday at its stronghold Chepauk Stadium, then its target will be to open the account of victory in this season. The four-time champion team captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni has returned here after four years. There is a lot of enthusiasm in the audience about this and the entire stadium will be painted in the yellow color of Chennai tomorrow.
Gujarat Titans defeated in the first match
Ruturaj Gaikwad Chennai were defeated by Gujarat Titans in the first match despite a brilliant innings. Chennai fans will also expect better performance from the rest of the batsmen who failed in the first match. England superstar Ben Stokes, bought in the IPL auction for Rs 16.25 crore, will be eager to prove his worth in the first home match. Apart from the slow run rate in the middle overs, the form of the bowlers is also a cause of concern for Dhoni.
Spinners will rock in Chepauk
It is a matter of relief for Chennai that the match is being held at MA Chidambaram Stadium where the role of spinners can be important. The same was seen in the third ODI between India and Australia played here ten days ago. Ravindra Jadeja and Mitchell Santner were not effective in the first match but will be trying to return to the rhythm here. Chennai can also field an additional spinner. Mahish Teekshana of Sri Lanka is not available for the first three matches, so it has to be seen who is given a chance.
Lucknow Super Giants will go out to win the second match
On the other hand, KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants registered a huge win over Delhi Capitals on Saturday. Kyle Myers batted stormy and Mark Wood took five wickets. Apart from Myers in batting, captain Rahul, Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis will also be eyeing.
