Check here the weather forecast, rain forecast and more for the IPL 2023 match between Lucknow Super Giants and Chennai Super Kings
The action continues to unfold in a fair clip from IPL 2023 as Chennai Super Kings travel to Ekana Cricket Stadium where they will see off the horns with Lucknow Super Giants.
The two teams arrive on the back of a defeat in rather contrasting styles. As Lucknow went down to Royal Challengers Bangalore in a low scoring thriller, Chennai were beaten by Punjab Kings in a high scoring last ball.
Lucknow needs their batting to step up while Chennai Super Kings need to plug holes in their bowling attack. Their bowling has been disappointing and the team’s senior players need to step up.

On the other hand, LSG are well balanced when it comes to their bowling attack. They have good spinners in Krunal Pandya, Amit Mishra and Ravi Bishnoi and they will challenge CSK’s batting order.
However, KL Rahul is an injury problem and their batting order task will be cut to get a good score especially after the dismal show against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
LSG needs his higher order to give him a platform for Krunal and Nicholas Pooran.
Ayush Badoni has been promoted and he might just be the key to Lucknow.

For CSK, bowling has been a concern all season. Captain MS Dhoni wants his bowlers to close out matches and be closely aligned with established plans.
With LSG boasting a number of spinners alongside them, we could once again see a dry surface which could make running tedious.

The wind speed will be around 4-9 km/h and the humidity will be between 90-98%.
