Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings IPL Match Today: KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will take on Ruturaj Gaikwad’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Match No. 34 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.

The two teams had contrasting fortunes in their previous matches. While Ruturaj Gaikwad’s team, still ‘managed’ by the peerless Mahendra Singh Dhoni, comes into the game with back-to-back wins, LSG under KL Rahul has endured a mini-slump with back-to-back defeats.

CSK predicted XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Sameer Rizvi, MS Dhoni (wk), Shardul Thakur, Tushar Deshpande, Matheesha Pathirana

CSK player to watch out for: Ravindra Jadeja, on ball-grabbing tracks as often happens at the Ekana, could be more than a handful. At Lucknow, Jadeja would like to take full advantage of the conditions.
