Indian Premier League 2022 – Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings – 7th Match Prediction
In the seventh game of the Indian Premier League 2022, Chennai Super Kings will face Lucknow Super Giants, who are both looking for their first win. Both teams have lost their first two games. CSK got off to a shaky start against the Kolkata Knight Riders, while the Lucknow Super Giants squandered a golden opportunity against the Gujarat Titans. They’d like to get things started with a win here.
Chennai Super Kings did not field their strongest XI in the previous game, but they will be able to do so now that Moeen Ali has been released from quarantine. Most of these players have been playing together for a while and are familiar with each other’s game. Lucknow is a new franchise, and it may take some time for the players to gel. To win this game, they will need to work as a team.
The 7th match between Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings will take place on March 31st, 2022 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings Team Previews
Lucknow Super Giants (Match Odds – 2.20)
KL Rahul would be disappointed with his team’s performance against the Gujarat Titians in the previous game, which they lost by 5 wickets. Their top order failed in their previous game, and the team would need to improve on that. Rahul needs to lead from the front and have a big innings to help his team win this game.
The team will be looking for a strong performance from Rahul and Quinton de Kock after their failure in the previous game. Evin Lewis must perform well in the middle order alongside Manish Pandey. Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, and Krunal Pandya all performed admirably against the Titans, and the team will place high expectations on the trio in this game.
Dushmantha Chameera bowled well with the new ball in the previous game, but he needs to strike early with Avesh Khan. Krunal Pandya was the bowler of choice, and he will have a lot of responsibility in the middle overs. Mohsin Khan, Hooda, and Ravi Bishnoi went for runs while bowling poor lines, and better spells from them would be required against CSK.
Lucknow Super Giants Squad
KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Dushmantha Chameera, Mohsin Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Manan Vohra, Ankit Rajpoot, Krishnappa Gowtham, Karan Sharma, Mayank Yadav
Predicted XI: 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 (Match Odds – 1.67)
Ravindra Jadeja’s captaincy did not begin well, as the team was defeated by the Kolkata Knight Riders by six wickets in their most recent game. Jadeja appeared to be overwhelmed by the occasion and did not make the most of his depleted bowling attack. With the team likely to field a stronger attack in this game, Jadeja hopes to score his first points of the season.
Rituraj Gaikwad and Devon Conway struggled in the previous game, and the team would like to see them get off to a good start in this one. Moeen Ali joins the squad, and along with Robin Uthappa and Ambati Rayudu, he will help to strengthen the batting in the middle order. MS Dhoni, Jadeja, and Shivam Dube are known for their hitting abilities, and the side bats deep. After failing to deliver in the previous game, the batting unit must deliver this time.
In the previous game, their bowling attack appeared toothless, and the side would need early wickets from Adam Milne and Tushar Deshpande, who bowled poor lines with the new ball. Ali adds to the strength of this attack, but he will need to keep the scoring under control with Jadeja and Bravo, who both performed well in the previous game. Dube must perform admirably if he is to be considered an all-rounder.
Chennai Super Kings Squad
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (c), Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tushar Deshpande, Chris Jordan, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Maheesh Theekshana, Hari Nishanth, N Jagadeesan, Subhranshu Senapati, Prashant Solanki, Mukesh Choudhary, KM Asif, Simarjeet Singh, Bhagath Varma, Moeen Ali, Dwaine Pretorius
Predicted XI: Ravindra Jadeja (c), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Moeen Ali, Adam Milne, Tushar Deshpande
Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings Toss Prediction
The previous game played here saw a large score easily chased. The bowlers are likely to struggle on this batting surface. The side that wins the toss here will look to chase because the dew factor will make bowling in the second innings difficult.
To Win the Toss – Lucknow Super Giants – 1.85
To Win the Toss – Chennai Super Kings – 1.85
Pitch and Weather Conditions
Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium has a flat track and a fast outfield. Batsmen have always enjoyed batting on this track because the ball is so easy to hit. The surface isn’t ideal for fast bowlers, who must hit the deck hard to generate bounce. Large square boundaries provide cushion for the spinners while also generating turn from the track.
On March 31, we anticipate a warm and humid evening in Mumbai. The wicket is excellent, and batsmen can easily score runs. Bowlers won’t get much help from the track and will have to rely on their variations to trouble the batsmen. On this calm wicket, the team batting first would have to set a target of 180 runs or more.
Lucknow Super Giants vs Chennai Super Kings Match Prediction
The bowling attack of the Lucknow Super Giants does not appear to be balanced. Their attack is inexperienced, as evidenced by their performance in the previous game. To win this game, the team would need to improve in this area. CSK has several match-winners in their lineup, and they will field a stronger lineup in this game than they did in the previous one, making them favourites to win this contest.
Chennai Super Kings is the favourite to beat Lucknow Super Giants at the odds of 1.67.
- LSG’s bowling attack is toothless, and aside from Krunal Pandya and Dushmantha Chameera, the other bowlers have appeared rusty.
- With MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, and Shivam Dube in the lineup, CSK has strong finishers to complement their batting.
- Mooen Ali enters the game for CSK, and his experience strengthens this bowling attack.
