The sixth game of IPL 2023 will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants at the former’s home ground. Both the teams have had a contrasting start to their IPL 2023 campaign.
Chennai lost their opening game to Gujarat Titans after being unable to defend a competitive target. Ruturaj Gaikwad was absolutely brilliant with a knock of 92, but apart from him, none of the other CSK batsmen could get a half century. Their bowlers were even worse on the day, having been unable to defend a target of 178. Their impact player Tushar Deshpande gave away as many as 51 runs in just 3.2 overs. Rajvardhan Hangargekar picked up three wickets, but gave away 36 runs as the Titans went on to give by five wickets.
The Super Giants, on the other hand, made a brilliant start to their season by defeating the Delhi Capitals by 50 runs. A brilliant 38-ball 73 from Kyle Mayers took the Super Giants to a first innings total of 193, which they successfully defended. Mark Wood picked up five wickets to help LSG win the match by 50 runs. The big win, which has boosted Lucknow’s net run rate, will be useful to them in the latter stages of the tournament.

CSK vs LSG: Chennai Weather and Pitch Report
The pitch at the M Chidambaram Stadium will favour the spinners but run-scoring looked easy in the first game of the season played here a day ago between Chennai and Gujarat. The average first innings score here in IPL matches is 155. Anything above 160 will be a good total on this wicket and the captain winning the toss should preferably opt to bowl first.
The weather, meanwhile, will be humid during the game. The temperature is likely to be in the range of 29 to 31 degree Celsius. No rain has been forecast.

Chennai’s batting in their season opener was largely a one-man show. Their bowlers also leaked plenty of runs. Lucknow, on the other hand, were absolutely dominant in the game against the Delhi Capitals. Going by how both the teams fared in their respective opening games, we predict the Super Giants as the winners of this game.
