LSG vs CSK Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips: IPL 2024 34th Match | LKN vs CHE Dream11 Prediction Today | Lucknow Pitch Report

Who will reign supreme in the battle of the Super Giants and Super Kings? That is the big question in this important match in the playoffs race, with hosts Lucknow Super Giants looking to force their way back into the top four against the in-form Chennai Super Kings.

CSK, courtesy of Shivam Dube, put a number on Mumbai Indians over the weekend. He headlines a strong CSK middle order, which has the ability to put teams to the sword no matter how steady the start is up top. Also, Matheesha Pathirana seems to be getting better with every passing match.

So, LSG have a tough test on their hands but it’s certainly one they are capable of passing. However, they have questions to answer, especially their number three as well as Marcus Stoinis’ consistency at four. A game against a good CSK side is an excellent opportunity to break the two-match losing streak.

Lucknow Super Giants:

  • KL Rahul has looked in good touch without going on to get the big score. He has a good overall record against CSK: 12 inns, 455 runs, avg. 41.36, SR 140.87.

  • Nicholas Pooran has hit 12 of LSG’s 15 sixes this year. Since the start of 2023, Pooran has smashed 581 runs at an average of 41.5 and strike rate of 168.4 in the IPL.
  • Ravi Bishnoi will be crucial in the middle, especially against Dube. He has dismissed Dube once in 20 balls, but the left-hander strikes at 165 against him.
  • Mohsin Khan against Ruturaj Gaikwad will be an interesting battle. The CSK captain has been dismissed three times against left-arm seam this season at an average of 10.7 and strike rate of 110.3.
