Chennai started with a five-wicket loss to Gujarat Titans in the series opener while Lucknow started with a thumping 50-run win over Delhi. This venue has been a fortress for the Super Kings and they are likely to relish seeing playing here. My prediction is for Lucknow to score the highest first six overs score.

  • Chennai Super Kings have won 18 of their last 21 matches played at this venue (IPL)
  • Chennai Super Kings have conceded the most powerplay runs in 10 of their last 13 matches at this venue (IPL)
  • Lucknow Super Giants have hit the most 6s in their last 6 matches (IPL)
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad has scored at least 3 boundaries in 6 of his last 8 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


Lucknow Super Giants started their IPL journey only last season and have played Chennai Super Kings only once. In a high-scoring match that saw 421 runs scored, the Super Giants won by six wickets in the last over.

Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai couldn’t stop defending champions Gujarat Titans in the first match of the season, falling to a five-wicket defeat. They posted 178/7 batting first with Ruturaj Gaikwad scoring 92 off 50 balls.

It was the middle-over game where Chennai lost, after looking on target to post 200 at one point. The bowlers kept them in the game and took the match deep but it wasn’t to be.

Rookie pacer Rajvardhan Hangargekar led the bowling charts with a 3/36 but impact player Tushar Deshpande’s poor returns – 1/51 in 3.2 overs could cost his place.

Chennai Super Kings Team News


With the pitch at Chennai likely to be spinner-friendly, there’s a strong case for the Super Kings to look at extra spin options. Nishant Sindhu and even Dwaine Pretorius could be in line for a game.

Lucknow Super Giants Form


Lucknow Super Giants started their season on a high, in a sharp contrast to their hosts. They thumped Delhi Capitals by 50 runs on Saturday.

Batting first, Lucknow posted 193/6 with Kyle Mayers’ breezy 73 off 38 balls leading the charge. That proved to the game changer as the Capitals struggled when they batted.

It was Mark Wood’s extreme pace that caused problems with his 5/14 the best figures by any Lucknow bowler in this competition’s history. That helped restrict the Capitals to 143/9.

Lucknow Super Giants Team News


Krishnappa Gowtham was the impact sub for the Lucknow side and could fancy his chances once again on a spin-friendly Chennai wicket. They also have the wily veteran Amit Mishra in the squad should they want to boost their spin reserves.

Verdict

Chennai struggled in the first match as their middle-order failed to provide the right support to Ruturaj. A return to Chennai will boost their morale but questions remain over their batting prowess. It is Lucknow’s firepower that form a part of our prediction as I am putting my money on the Super Giants scoring more powerplay runs.

With the tournament offering new rules like impact player, keep an eye on who’s getting in and out during the substitution process. That could decide your intra-game picks.
