IPL 2023 CSK vs LSG – Preview, weather predictions, pitch report, best playing XI, fantasy tips, injury updates and match prediction

It is going to be MS Dhoni vs KL Rahul in the sixth game of the series between CSK vs LSG

CSK vs LSG: With all the teams playing their first match in the IPL 2023, Chennai Super Kings would really like to get their act together after a sloppy start to the tournament, suffering a defeat at the hands of the Gujarat Titans. Lucknow Super Giants, on the contrary, who would be playing their first away game in IPL 2023, will be desperate to continue their victorious form that started against the Delhi Capitals.

Chennai Super Kings will have to take a closer look at their batting department that lacked the depth and the right batting order that could have helped them getting close to a better score. In the end it clearly felt that they were at least 10-15 runs short and the consistent fall of wickets at the other end made life a living nightmare for the Kings.

Ruturaj Gaikwad was phenomenal with the bat and would be hoping to add further sheen to his numbers while MS Dhoni would be hoping the batting unit to step up. The bowlers seemed to be in decent touch but a lack of nerves considering the young guns steaming in from both ends backfired. Chennai will be in desperate need of a leader in their bowling echelons who could get the job done, especially in the death overs.


Lucknow Super Giants roared off to a stunning start as they schooled Delhi Capitals in a lopsided encounter. Once again, riding high on some fine balance between youth and experience, the Super Giants controlled the narrative from the start to the stop.

With a somewhat all-round perfect display, Lucknow will be hopeful of claiming their second win on the trot that will send them flying to the top of the points table and also instil an aura of invincibility in them buoyed some high-flying confidence.

CSK vs LSG: Pitch and weather report

The surface at the Chepauk offers nice bounce and carry for the cherry and this makes life slight easier for the fast bowlers. However, there is no seam on offer whatsoever and you can expect the surface producing a belter of a run-fest considering the presence of relentless hard-hitters in both sides.


The weather will be slightly on the hotter side and no rains are predicted. Dew has been predicted in the second half and you can expect it to play a crucial role in impacting the surface that would not allow the spinners to have a free say.
