Chennai fell to Gujarat in their inaugural match, while Delhi Capitals were upset by Lucknow.
Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on April 3 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai after destroying Delhi Capitals in the first game. On the other hand, the MS Dhoni-led Team will aim to gain their first victory of the season after suffering a five-wicket loss to Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2023 season opener.
For CSK, things will be a little more challenging. Their bowling appeared shaky in the most recent game, and the team administration needs to rectify this right now. Their middle-order batting will be another factor. They got off to a great start thanks to Rururaj Gaikwad’s 92 runs off 50 deliveries, but no one capitalised in the middle overs. In the end, Dhoni appeared to be in excellent shape, but will he play against LSG after hurting his knee in the previous game? Everyone is thinking about that question right now.
The Lucknow batters, on the other hand, were outstanding against DC. The 30-year-old opener Kyle Mayers looked fantastic as he scored 73 runs on 38 pitches. While Mark Wood caused havoc with the ball and recorded a five-for, Nicholas Pooran appeared in fine shape. Ravi Bishnoi will be extremely important for the Team in Chennai, where it is anticipated that the ball may change hands.

CSK vs LSG Probable Best Performers
Probable best batter
Flamboyant opener Ruturaj Gaikwad was at his very best in the opening game. For CSK to succeed in the tournament, the Pune-born cricketer needs to be consistent at the top of the order, and given his form, he can be the player to watch out for in the tournament.
Probable best bowler
Since the match will be played in Chennai, Ravi Bishnoi can prove dangerous. The leg-spinner picked up two wickets in the match against Delhi and will hope to keep up with it as his form can determine his future in India colours.
