CSK returning to their stronghold after 4 years… Super Giants of Lucknow will give tough challenge… Dhoni Brigade waiting for first win

New Delhi. Chennai Super Kings, captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni), will clash with Lucknow Super Giants at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk on Monday (April 3) in their second match of IPL 2023. While CSK has lost its first match to defending champions Gujarat Titans, the team of Lucknow Super Giants (CSK vs LSG) led by KL Rahul has started with a win. The Superkings of Chennai would like to register a win in this match, while the Super Giants will try to win their second consecutive victory. The four-time champion team captained by Mahendra Singh Dhoni has returned here after four years.

All eyes will be on Ben Stokes
Despite the brilliant innings of opener Rituraj Gaikwad, Chennai were defeated by Gujarat Titans in the first match. Chennai fans will also expect better performance from the rest of the batsmen who failed in the first match. England superstar Ben Stokes, who was bought for Rs 16.25 crore in the IPL auction, will be eager to prove his worth in the first home match. Apart from the slow run rate in the middle overs, the form of the bowlers is also a cause of concern for Dhoni.

The role of spinners will be important in Chennai
It is a matter of relief for Chennai that the match is being held at MA Chidambaram Stadium where the role of spinners can be important. The same was seen in the third ODI between India and Australia played here ten days ago. Ravindra Jadeja and Mitchell Santner were not effective in the first match but will be trying to return to the rhythm here. Chennai can also field an additional spinner. Mahish Teekshana of Sri Lanka is not available for the first three matches, so it has to be seen who is given a chance.

Mark Wood opened his paw in the first match
On the other hand, KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants registered a huge win over Delhi Capitals on Saturday. Kyle Myers batted stormy and Mark Wood took five wickets. Apart from Myers in batting, captain Rahul, Nicholas Pooran and Marcus Stoinis will also be eyeing. At the same time, the role of Ravi Bishnoi and K Gautam will be important along with Wood in bowling. Live telecast of this match can be seen on Star Sports while live streaming will be on Jio Cinema app. This match will be played from 7:30 pm.
