LSG vs CSK: IPL 2024 team news

Both teams have played six matches, with Chennai sitting third on the points table with four wins. Lucknow, meanwhile, are placed in the fifth position with three wins and as many losses.

Deepak Hooda replaced Devdutt Padikkal against Kolkata Knight Riders and will likely hold onto his spot. LSG also handed a debut to Shamar Joseph, who had a tough outing with a 10-ball first over. Mohsin Khan, who returned from an injury and also played the last fixture, will probably continue. If Mayank Yadav returns after missing the previous two matches due to an injury, he will probably slot in as an Impact substitute.

Moeen Ali was named Player of the Match the last time Lucknow played in Chennai. It remains to be seen whether the visitors slot him in the XI in place of Daryl Mitchell, who hasn’t impressed with the bat so far.

Deepak Chahar is “recovering well” from a niggle, as stated by head coach Stephen Fleming but his expected return is confirmed. In other news, Ajinkya Rahane opened for Chennai in their last match but was subbed out due to a niggle.

England seamer Richard Gleeson replaced Devon Conway, who was ruled out of IPL 2024 due to a fracture in the joint of his left thumb.
