In the seventh match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium on Thursday.

Both teams have lost their opening games, so they would be aiming to register their maiden win in the fifteenth season of the cash-rich league. While Lucknow lost a thriller against Gujarat Titans (GT) on Monday, the defending champions faced a defeat against last year’s finalists, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), in the tournament opener.

Pitch report:

The red soil at Brabourne Stadium’s pitch will help seamers to take some advantage, but the shorter boundaries would assist batters in piling up a challenging total. In the last match played at this venue, between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Delhi Capitals (DC), both sides breached the 170-run mark.

Probable XIs:

Lucknow Super Giants: KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Mohsin Khan, Ayush Badoni, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan

Chennai Super Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Tushar Deshpande, Adam Milne
