LSG vs CSK Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Updates For Match 45 of IPL 2023

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 46th game of the Indian Premier Leaue 2023 on Wednesday (May 3) at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. LSG have won five out of nine games so far and are third in the points table. They are coming into this game after failing to chase down a mere target of 127 runs against Royal Challenger Bangalore in the previous encounter. Naveen-ul-Haq picked three wickets for 30 runs in four overs and was the most successful bowler for LSG. Only Krishnappa Gowtham scored more than 20 runs with the bat.

Chennai Super Kings have also won five out of nine games so far and are in fourth place in the points table. They have lost their previous two games and will be looking to bounce back. In the previous encounter against Punjab Kings, CSK posted a total of 200 runs for the loss of four wickets in 20 overs with the help of another half-century from Devon Conway. But, a collective batting effort from PBKS’ batters helped them chase this total on the last delivery of the match.
