Chennai Super Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants, IPL 2024: Predicted Playing XIs Of Both Teams And Impact Substitutes

Defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in Match 39 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday, April 23. Having won four games out of seven, CSK are placed fourth in the IPL 2024 standings. On the other hand, LSG have also won four out of seven games and are ranked fifth in the IPL 2024 standings. The last time when both these sides met at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on April 19, Lucknow grabbed a comfortable win by eight wickets.

Ahead of this exciting contest, we look at the predicted XIs of both sides.

CSK Predicted XI

Ruturaj Gaikwad (captain)

Chennai Super Kings skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad has had a decent campaign with the bat this season. With 241 runs in seven matches at a 130.27 strike rate, Gaikwad will hope to showcase his destructive form against LSG.

Rachin Ravindra

New Zealand’s opening batter Rachin Ravindra is currently going through a lean patch in IPL 2024. The southpaw has struggled at the top of the order, having managed to score only 133 runs in seven matches but will be backed against LSG given his all-round abilities.

Ajinkya Rahane

Ajinkya Rahane played a crucial role in CSK’s successful campaign last season. He hasn’t really been among the runs in IPL 2024 having scored only 160 runs at a strike rate of 130.08 but his experience could aid CSK against LSG.

Shivam Dube

Shivam Dube has been in the spotlight for CSK in IPL 2024. With 245 runs in seven matches, Dube leads CSK’s top run-scorers list. Averaging 49 with a strike rate of 157.05, Dube has been a consistent performer for Chennai.

Ravindra Jadeja

Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja adds depth to the CSK lineup with bat and ball. He hasn’t got many opportunities to bat but has scored 141 runs in five innings at a strike rate of 141. Jadeja has also claimed four wickets in seven matches.

Sameer Rizvi

One of the most expensive uncapped players, Sameer Rizvi, is most likely to be backed in the lower middle order against LSG. Striking at 125, Rizvi has only scored 15 runs in three innings so far but can be destructive when given a chance.

MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper)

MS Dhoni continues to defy his age by entertaining fans with his bat while at the crease. The Indian legend hasn’t spent much time in the middle but has still scored 87 runs in five innings at a remarkable strike rate of 255.88.

Deepak Chahar

Indian pacer Deepak Chahar has been an integral part of the CSK camp since 2018. In five matches, Chahar has picked only four wickets at an economy of 9.08 this year. He will be looking to strike early against LSG.

Maheesh Theekshana

Sri Lankan spinner Maheesh Theekshana¬†played a vital role in CSK’s spin bowling department in IPL 2023. This year, he has played three matches taking two wickets at an economy of 7.58. He could prove effective on the slow track at Chepauk against LSG.

Mustafizur Rahman

With 11 wickets in six matches, Mustafizur Rahman is the leading wicket-taker for CSK this season. His ability to generate bounce, pace as well as his swing variations make him a threat to any batting lineup.

Matheesha Pathirana

Matheesha Pathirana will spearhead CSK’s pace attack against Lucknow Super Giants. He has taken nine wickets in four matches at an economy of 7.31, including a match-winning four-fer against MI.

LSG Predicted XI

Quinton de Kock

Quinton de Kock has gradually found his rhythm with the bat in IPL 2024. The southpaw has scored 228 runs in seven matches, including three fifty-plus scores. De Kock scored a determined fifty against CSK earlier this season and will be looking to continue scoring runs.

KL Rahul (captain and wicketkeeper)

Lucknow’s captain and wicketkeeper KL Rahul will open the innings along with de Kock. The right-hander has scored 286 runs in seven matches and is LSG’s highest run-scorer this season. His highest score of 82 in IPL 2024 also came in LSG’s win against CSK.

Deepak Hooda

With Devdutt Padikkal struggling to find form this season, Deepak Hooda could bat at No. 3 for the Super Giants. Due to a lack of game-time, Hooda hasn’t been among the runs for LSG but he is quite capable of adding crucial runs to the scoreboard and has made more than 1,000 runs in his IPL career.

Marcus Stoinis

Marcus Stoinis will have an important role to play with the bat as well as ball against Chennai. The Australian all-rounder will be eager to have a big impact on his team’s fortunes against CSK as he looks to add to his 130 runs and two wickets in IPL 2024.

Nicholas Pooran

With 246 runs in seven matches, Nicholas Pooran is the second-highest run-scorer for the Super Giants this year. The Caribbean hard-hitter has scored runs at an average of 82 and a strike rate of 164, and is a vital cog in LSG’s lineup.

Ayush Badoni

Ayush Badoni has been one of the key members of LSG’s batting unit in IPL 2024. Although Badoni hasn’t been at his best this season but has still managed to score 113 runs in six innings at a strike rate of 124.17.

Krunal Pandya

India all-rounder Krunal Pandya has had a quiet run in IPL 2024. He has scored only 58 runs and taken five wickets in seven matches but is capable of turning things around and will be eager to contribute more for LSG when they face CSK on Tuesday.

Mohsin Khan

Mohsin Khan has been a promising talent for LSG since his IPL debut and he has a handy knack of taking wickets regularly. The left-arm pacer has scalped six wickets in four matches this season. Overall, in 18 IPL matches, Mohsin has taken 23 wickets at an economy of 7.61.

Ravi Bishnoi

Ravi Bishnoi has played an important role in LSG’s spin department. He has taken five wickets in seven matches at an economy of 8.38 this season. Since 2020, Bishnoi has taken seven wickets against CSK and is likely to be among the wickets in the upcoming clash.

Naveen-ul-Haq

Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq is an integral part of LSG’s pace battery having taken six wickets in five matches this season. A bowler with plenty of variety, Naveen is capable of bowling in crunch situations and will be one of LSG’s biggest threats with the ball against CSK.

Yash Thakur

With Mayank Yadav injured, Yash Thakur will probably open the proceedings for Lucknow with the ball. Thakur’s pace and swing variations have earned him eight wickets in six matches, including the first fifer of IPL 2024 against Gujarat recently.
